It’s been a little over a week since we switched Pepper to a raw meat diet from Aliments Crue Grenier. To be
honest, I was pleasantly surprised! I imagined that the change would take a least a week and that we would be having explosive diherrea episodes during that week. Luckily that wasn’t the case. Pepper took to it very well. Adding rice to the meat or the fist two meals really helped her stomach cope with it.
Right away, her stool was harder and much less in volume. Before we started, the kibbles she was eating would leave her with a lot of digestive problems. Her stool was rarely consistent and smelled like….well..shit.
I don’t want to put this other brand down. It is better quality than most kibbles you would buy in bulk at any random store, but for my dog, it never sat well with her. Even other local known brands that we tried when she was very young would cause her digestive problems. When you have a small puppy that cries in the middle of the night because of loose stool, it isn’t fun.
Now, there’s hardly any smell and she doesn’t seem to be in any sort of discomfort. For an 8 month old pup, she can now last a little longer in her cage during the day without having that discomfort of exploding out the rear.
I’d have to say that, in general, her first experience with this new diet has been very good, she seems happy with the taste, no negative reactions to it, and it even cost me $10 less then her kibble brand.
