I'm super interested in feeding RAW diet to my babies but have heard so many bad things about feeding raw meats and it making them sick and that raw eggs can be dangerous, also, I have always heard its not good to give dogs bones because they can choke, apparently I've been believing a lot of horrible myths. Our Charlie has a very sensitive stomach and seems to do ok on kibble but he eats grass a lot, rarely vomits, and gets diarrhea super easily when he is nervous.

Awesome thread. I was always so confused with the raw diet thing as I looked at it as.

I'm going to follow the preymodelraw with my 2 girls when I get them home next week. Time to start making some calls to meat suppliers.

This forum really is awesome.

I'm having a hard time finding meat suppliers. I live on the Alabama Gulf Coast. I tried to join a group on yahoo groups for people supposedly in my area but I don't think that the group is active anymore because I haven't heard back from them. Are there any website that I'm missing? I tried Craigslist and everything and just can't figure this out!

Is there any local butcher shops you can go to and approach about buying bulk meats?? Also your local grocery store... thats where most of us go if we cant find a supplier, I just watch for sales and the old meats.
You can also post a Craigslist AD for Old Freezer Burnt Meant or Meat people need to get rid of because there moving ect... I've gotten lots from people from posting an AD... Never hurts to try!!

I am a member of three yahoo groups. Two of them are named RawChat and RawFeeding. For me, I find the best deals at the local market. I will shop the ads online and just buy when things are on sale. I like Smart and Final for their pork. I inquired about a meat supplier and it just didn't work for me.

Thanks for simplifying this so well Kari! The whole percentage thing is what I always had trouble with my first go round with feeding raw (that was about 7 or 8 years ago). At the time I was also feeding "veggie mush". I like the idea of not having to feed it. Mine never ate it anyway.

I'm trying to find some information backing up the theory that dogs with allergies like cooked chicken and turkey can eat it in the raw form and benefit from it. Would you happen to have any info on that? Those two protein sources are on Logan's allergy list, but he has only had it in the cooked form. If he can't handle it raw I really don't see how I could afford to switch to raw.

So in reading about RAW.. I am curious about trying it. My Kratos is not really eating his dry food and I was curious if I could do half and half? Say Feed him RAW at night and dry in the morning??
