The topic for this week came to me, ironically, from an article that I couldn’t argue against. Kenzo_KW at Twitter.com, who helped with last week’s topic, suggested that his pal Jana Rade send me a piece of hers to use as a jumping off point for this week’s inquiry. Problem is, I agree with everything she writes in The Rebel in Me: (Don’t) Give a Dog a Bone? and couldn’t imagine marshaling any evidence against her contention. Admittedly, I don’t have a great deal of respect for the FDA and its too late, too wrong, ever-shifting dictates.
But it got me thinking. If it seems like a no brainer to feed a dog a bone and other natural foods, what about the opposite: Is it okay to make kibble the basis of your dog’s diet? Advocates of raw feeding, home cooking, and other diets would argue that it isn’t.
But kibble sure is convenient.
So, friends, send me your links! I’m ready to open this can of worms. As it were.
