(Op verzoek van Lizzy,verplaats van info naar discussie)

Omdat mijn Spots bij dit onderzoek hun medewerking hebben gegeven,  
dacht ik dat het misschien intressant zou wezen om de voorlopige  
uitslag van dit onderzoek te plaatsen.  
Het zegd dus dat er verschil is in de bloedwaardes van honden die die  
RAUW gevoerd worden en andere methodes(brok/blik voeding)  
De 'normale" bloedwaardes zullen misschien aangepast moeten worden  
voor de honden die alleen Rauw eten.

"Raw Food Diet Study"  
Antech Diagnostics recently determined the basic clinical laboratory  
parameters of 227 healthy adult dogs of varying ages and breed types  
fed raw food diets for at least 9 months. From this group, 87 dogs  
were fed the  
classical BARF diet, 46 dogs were fed Volhards NDF diet, and the  
remaining 94 dogs  
were fed other types of custom or commercial raw diets.  
There were 69 dog breeds represented, including 233 purebreds,  
1 mixed breed and 6 of unknown breed type. Dogs from all breed groups  
were represented.  
Most of the dogs were neutered males (73) or spayed females(85);  
and the remainder was divided equally between intact males and  
The mean age of the group was 5.67 Ã,± 3.52 years (mean
Ã,± SD);  
and the  
mean length of time fed a raw food diet was 2.84 Ã,± 2.54
The data from thisgroup of dogs were compared to the same laboratory  
parameters measured at  
Antech Diagnostics from 75 healthy adult dogs fed a commercial cereal-
based kibble diet.  
Statistical comparisons of results for the raw and cereal-based diets  
them to be essentially the same with the following notable  
Higher packed cell volume (hematocrit) in all raw diet fed groups  
(range of 51.0 Ã,± 6.6ââ,¬â?o53.5 Ã,± 5.6 %)
versus cereal-based  
kibble (47.6  
Ã,± 6.1%).  
Higher blood urea nitrogen (BUN) in all raw diet fed groups  
(range of 18.8 Ã,±  6.9ââ,¬â?o22.0 Ã,± 8.7
mg/dL) versus cereal-
based kibble (15.5 Ã,± 4.7mg/dL).  
Higher serum creatinine in the Volhard raw diet group only (1.20
mg/dL) versus cereal-based kibble (1.07 Ã,± 0.28 mg/dL).  
While a more detailed analysis has yet to be completed, these results  
indicate that dogs fed raw meats (natural carnivores) have higher red  
blood cell  
and blood urea nitrogen levels than dogs fed cereal-based food  
(obligate omnivores).  
Thus, the normal reference values for dogs fed raw food diets  
should probably be revised.
