I have two adorable dogs named Nui and Pipi. Nui is an 8 year old male Maltese Shitzu and Pipi is a female Miniature Toy Maltese that I have had from the Dog Rescue for 7 years.
They both had an unhealthy lifestyle and have been very picky and finicky about their food. Nui has been overweight for a while and unfortunately has dog lupus, a condition that has been challenging to deal with and find a cure for. Pipi, on the other hand, has always eaten whatever she decides she wants on any day. This was the case until they were introduced to the RAW food mix which is comprised of healthy raw meats like possum, duck, kangaroo, and venison mince with a range of grated veggies such as carrot, broccoli, courgette, cucumber, and ginger. The diet also includes a range of healthy seeds and oils as well as dried produce for each meal.
The impact of this diet has been awesome with the hope that they will live longer and their particular sicknesses will deplete. I didn’t think they would maintain a healthy diet for long but it has been about 6 months since they’ve been introduced to the RAW food mix and they are still keeping up with it. Nui has since lost weight and is more energetic. Before he started the diet he was 9.3 kg and he is now 8.4 kg. Likewise, Pipi is also very energetic, she is now, unfortunately, spending time running around at night playing up and down the corridor, something she has never done before. She’s 13 years old, going blind and deaf but not that you’d notice with her change of energy thanks to changing to a healthy eating regime.
I certainly believe that the increased energy is from the products and dietary changes that have been implemented for them at home. Processed foods no longer form a part of Nui’s diet and Pipi has very limited processed food, she has one tin per day as well as her raw food and her brother’s food!
I wish for my dogs to live long and healthy lives, this diet will definitely ensure that this is the case.
