Does any one feed their dog Dr. Harvey's? I'm toying with the idea of feeding my crazy little Jack Russell's this all-natural food, but I'm wondering if I need to supplement the food with raw (or cooked) meat. Anyone feed their dog this stuff?<br><br>

Even here at the vet school the raw/natural/regular dog food battle rages on. You will have people who love it and think it's the best thing since sliced bread and others who have had problems with it in their own pets or as vets have seen issues in other animals.<br><br>
We don't feed our dogs that food or any other raw/natural foods.<br><br>
My recommendation is talk to your vet about the food. If your dog does not have any medical conditions that would warrant them NOT using it then there may be no problem. However I would do some research on the food before making the leap. And remember to introduce any new food slowly (as in mixing in with the old food first) to avoid GI problems.

Thanks, DogMom! I was hoping you would weigh in. My youngest Jack has chronic itchy skin. The vet put us on a 2xweek bathing schedule (with hydrocortisone shampoo/condition) which helps quite a bit, but the poor baby still has flakey/itchy skin. I was hoping Dr. Harvey's might be the answer, since the website for the food addresses skin issues in particular. The boys have to go in for a visit tomorrow, so I'll bring up the issue again with her.<br><br>
