great to know that your dog is doing better; also, by raw meat I meant raw whole chicken, beef, mutton, quail, venison and so on...
There can be a thousand opinions on what food is best for a dog as you see...and maybe in the end, only the dog knows :-) So, as long as he's happy with his food and thriving, it's all good. All I was trying to say was that meat isn't really as scary as it is made out to be and in my own personal experience, raw meat, despite the parasites and germs, which it does have, has worked better than any other food.
This site has a lot of info about it http://www.rawlearning.com
But as I said...as long as your dog is healthy and happy, it's all good .
