Thanks for asking Cera.... we actually did have a raw thread recently :*note: I did a search but couldn't find anything when I searched "raw" - if this has been brought up before, let me know. *
I'm very interested in nutrition in general, as is my whole family, so we're curious about different types of dog diets.
I've read a little about raw (and BARF) diets, and they really intrigue me. (Plus something about a miniature poodle eating a raw chicken leg makes me laugh.) I find them appealing mostly because you know and can control what your dog is eating.
But then there are plenty of good dry diets as well. I've heard good things about Innova, Canidae, and others. (<3 dogfoodanalysis.com)
Does anyone have particularly strong opinions/facts/resources leaning one way or the other?
I love this website by the author of "Raw Meaty Bones". And you can also read the book off of this website (if I'm not mistaken)
I'm all for feeding raw - If you get the meat from a reputable source and it's good quality meat. I usually buy my meat from our local dutch market since I know it's all organic. It doesn't have all the hormones etc. that is in the grocery store meat, but it might work out a bit more expensive.
