Dr. Kruger,

What do you think of the raw food diets for dogs? What can you recommend for cataracts? I have a 9 lb. Chiu/Terrier mix. He's allergic to grains. except oats, and potatoes. I give him canned Salmon, canned dog food with out grains, Missing Link, IP6, Milkthisle, NAC, Curry, Italian herbs, chopped raw greens.

Hi Philip,

Your diet sounds very good to me. You might substitute mackerel for the salmon. It is less expensive and very nutritious. When I feed a natural diet, which I think are good, I feed a grain, and or potato. I do think oats are the best of the grains. The meat portion may be fish, chicken (Without bones or ground bones) or beef. The addition of veggies is a good variety and is best. I and my Everyday Health supplement to cover the remaining bases that may have not been fully covered. It is the only supplement that is needed, if you don't want to continue with your pharmacy of additives you might like to try just my supplement.
