I did that once, and will never do it again. Numbers are legion who attempt this. Many are happy with it, and it gives them warm fuzzies in doing so. MOST vets reccomend against it.
Many have had bad results and as a result have killed , or permanently messed up their dogs (I am one of many who had this experience)

Your results may or may not be satisfactory. But whatever the results, good or bad, even if it kills your dog, or permanently maimes your dog (like it did mine) is YOUR decision, because once you make this choice, there is no one accountable except you, should your dog be killed or damaged. If a feed company damages,or maimes or kills your dog, you at least have someone accountable.

You'll probably have better luck if you repost your question to rec.pets.dogs.health.

Has it occurred to you that there may have been a genetic component that caused your dog to do so poorly on a raw diet? Considering the sort of problems you've had with his son, it seems a little unfair to place sole blame on a raw diet. Also, "you are bringing your hatred of (raw diets) back into the equation." I'm just sayin'...

what does my problems with my adopted son have to do with raw diets? Are you suggesting that I should have fed him raw, instead of cooked, and he would have been ok?

You and your dog had a son? And you're calling *me* a maroon?

Reading is fundamental!

Your dog that did poorly on a raw diet was Danny, correct? Or was there another dog of yours that that could have applied to? His son is Tuck, correct? How on earth that could have been difficult to follow is beyond me, but it's pretty clear who the maroon is.

Would there be something wrong with that?

And Tuck is his son, but I don't understand how you think sharp pointy bones poking through Tuck's stomach causing septic peritonitis is genetic.
