This page is dedicated to following the diets of my two Hungarian Vizslas Luna (aka Luna the crazy Vizsla) and Hendrix!
You may know us from our Instagram account @the_prettypointers which follows the daily adventures of my two crazy dogs.
Since we started our Instagram account I have posted photos of Lunas daily raw meals which has sparked a huge response from people looking for more information on why I feed certain things and how they can feed their dog the same diet! It also invited some ignorant and rude people to tell me I was “killing my dog” because dogs cant eat proper food and should only eat dried processed food……grrrr
So after many requests I have decided to start this page in order to help educate people on raw feeding, the benefits, the do’s and don’ts and first hand diet plans of my dogs.
Have I always fed raw food? No, When I first got Luna at 8 weeks old she was reared on kibble (Purina Pro Plan)
Why did I switch? I had been looking into the benefits of raw feeding from day 1 and I always intended to switch her ‘eventually’. However we were fighting a constant battle with trying to get her to eat! She wouldn’t eat her kibble unless we added either, Gravy (which is far to salty for dogs) or Tinned Sardines/Tuna. I was literally spoon feeding her the entire bowl full. It was a very stressful time! Then at 4 months old she started to develop problems. We were going to the vets constantly with ear infections (due to yeast from grains in her food) and then she had a full blown reaction from the kibble, Hives! Her body was covered in itchy lumps from head to toe it was a very sad sight. Especially as the problem was due to something that I had been feeding her. That was the real kick in the arse I needed to make the switch!!!
If you have a question that you would like to ask please leave a comment below and I will get back to you as soon as possible! Also by contacting me you give me permission to potentially share your question and my answer with the page if I feel it will be educational for others.
I must also add that I am not a trained Vet and if your dog has any medical or behavioural problems please consult a professional.
