    Default Raw diet and Colitis

    Spent friday evening at the vet with Kona. Apparently he is suffering from colitis. The only thing I can think of that might of brought it on was the introduction of raw to his diet I was beginning. I was doing it in very small amounts. Has anyone had any incidences of this when switching to raw? I have decided to hold off on the switch until I research. Also was told by vet that Kona has an enlarged prostrate. He said this is common in intact males. Anyone have any experience with that also?

    On another raw thread I said I had read that stomach problems, IBS etc, happened to other dogs when I lurked in raw boards.

    ...have never had colitis with the raw diet. Just a thought, are you feeding too much food? Weigh the raw to feed correctly..and adjust to your dog's needs. Not the same as 3 cups of kibble!

    Found that mixing kibble/raw is not the best for their gut. (experience, here, anyway)
