Great Life Grainless dogfood??

I've been feeding MoJo raw in the mornings, and then give him a light kibble "dinner"...we've been using Acana for a couple of years. I was at the dog food store, and the gal there showed me this food.

I'm insecure about changing anything, tho Moj is now having difficulty pooping (the peeing has gotten WAY better)...but life being life...there always seems to be a trade off. I'm pretty sure the difficulty in pooping is related to the nerve injury in his rear quarters. When I talked to the Vet about it, she seems to think it's the arthritus in hips...but I'm the standing there, watching the poor fella trying to poop...and it's not his positioning, I'm convinced it's internal...it's been progressively getting worse for the last year or so.

I personally know a manufacturer of the BARF / RAW diets.
- she told me, once you switch...NO more kibble / due to different food digestions

He gets raw in the morning, and kibble at night....they are never fed together.

I understood this...I'm just saying, NO kibble what-so-ever when feeding RAW.
(and that's advise from a lady, that have run 1 days clinics on the RAW switch)
- the fact that your dog has bathroom trouble, may provide some degree of confirmation, to this opinion

I had Poseidon on it a few years ago, and he did very well on it! He did well on anything I fed him though, he was just that kind of dog. I will say that it is the only time he ever ate while we were on vacation. New surroundings made him uneasy and he wouldn't eat. When he was on Great Life (we fed the buffalo) he ate like normal.
