Raw meat based diet influences faecal microbiome and end products of fermentation in healthy dogs.

I had a hypothesis: “If dogs and cats were fed the food they were designed for, they would live longer.” So in 1999, I started my Great Dane Camelot on a raw-food diet. He immediately took to it unlike anything else. And over the next 15 years, I added another 80 raw-fed dogs to a small observational study...
