Transitioning to Raw Feeding with Kimberly Gauthier
Recently I did a podcast with Kimberly Gauthier of KeepTheTailWagging.com. Kimberly’s goal is to raise awareness of natural alternative canine care by sharing her experience raising five dogs. Most pet parents will agree that feeding their pet high-quality food is important to them, and yet they continue to feed their pets dry kibble, not understanding the harm they’re doing to their pet’s long term health. Raw feeding can be intimidating when you’re starting out, even for Kimberly, before she became the expert she is today. Which is why her blog is an incredible resource for pet parents to learn about dog nutrition, raw feeding, dog health, behavior and more. She’s on the show to discuss pet health, the pet food industry, and Kimberly’s tips for pet parents who are interested in learning about raw feeding.

Kimberly shared some final thoughts for pet parents on our podcast this week:
“Don’t wait until your dog is diagnosed with cancer or some other autoimmune disease to switch to raw. Start doing it now. You don’t have to do cold turkey if you’re not ready. But just start adding fresh food to the bowl and start looking up things like, if you’re eating a banana. Google “Can dogs have bananas? Can dogs have strawberries, can dogs have apples, can dogs have kale?” and start educating yourself about what you can add to your dog’s diet. So that you can slowly start working your way to more of a fresh food diet.” – Kimberly Gauthier
