Raw food diet questions

Ok saw a couple of references to raw diet.. Where does one go to find a balanced and nutritional menu and recipes to feed a raw diet? Does the menu or recipes change depending on the breed? This sounds very interesting and since I stay at home, I have plenty of time to feed this way.

one of the best references on the web is http://www.rawfed.com/. the list of myths are very educational, and you also have some visuals as well as links to other great raw-feeding sites.

http://rawfeddogs.net/ for lots of photos & great recipes!

now if you have any specific questions... lots of folks here are ready to answer you

Raw food question

I own 3 golden retrievers and have always fed them dry dog food (good for teeth, my vets have told me). I have a friend who suggested raw food - less carbs, better for their wolf-like digestive system, he says. I've never heard of serving dogs raw food. What are the health pros & cons, compared with the dry food I buy in the supermarket every week?

Go back and read some of the links posted in this thread. As well, go over to the raw food section and have a gander there.

Their impression of power is remarkable. They give one the feeling of immense reserves of energy, of great reservoirs of knowledge, of tolerance of disposition, obstinacy of purpose, and tenacity of principle. They are responsive, and they have a lot of quiet, good sense.
