I write a lot about how I feed a home-prepared raw food diet to my dogs. There are as many different ways to feed raw food as there are people who feed raw food, so I focus on how I do it, in the hope that it will help other people who want to feed a raw food diet to their dogs.
There are some risks to feeding raw food. You can’t simply toss a boneless chicken breast at your dog every day and call it good. Before you get started feeding raw food, I suggest you read Mary Straus’s Homemade Diet Guidelines, and if you aren’t entirely sure about what you’re doing still, read them again. I also frequently reference Lew Olson’s Raw and Natural Nutrition for Dogs, which is available on Amazon in both Kindle and paperback formats. Lew is a moderator for the K9 Nutrition Yahoo Group, which also has a presence on Facebook.
If you feel like you’d like to take all the guesswork out of feeding a raw diet, nutritionist Dana Montero of NaturCanis offers dog food consultations. I know Dana through Facebook and a web forum devoted to large breed dogs, and I’m confident she’s got her facts down pat!
