Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I came across this article on another forum and found it intriguing. I know a lot of you guys feed raw and I hope somebody chimes in, but I wanted to know what everyone thinks?

I can't really add anything intellectual for starting a discussion though.

I don't doubt that dogs can process more starch than their wild ancestors which is all the article really says, we knew that already. But I disagree with the closing comment. Just because they can survive on more starch doesn't mean that's what we should be intentionally feeding them IMO. When you get down to basics, they are built for eating a prey model raw diet. Yes, they've evolved to be able to survive off of more but there is a huge difference between surviving and thriving.

That's a really good point Valerie, thanks for clearing that up.

There were a lot of mixed reaction on the other forum, most of them were applauding, but this forum and that one have very different opinions on feeding. So I wanted to get another side of the story
