What diet is the best for my dog – raw, cooked or kibble?

Every pet is different and just like there is no one diet for people, there cannot be one same diet for all dogs. Pet parents have to play and experiment with their pets. The experiments should be monitored and done in line with the safety of the pet. Suggestions from a pet nutritionist can be taken to adapt your pet to a new diet and evaluate his/her health post new diet.
