Making Raw Food

Hi - This is my first post to the forum. I am wondering if anyone here is making their own raw food. We are thinking of switching from our raw supplier and making it ourselves as one of our dogs has developed an allergy. Any advice out there?? Thanks!

hello and welcome to the forum

most people who feed raw cannot afford to purchase pre-made mixes, so yes there are some very simple ways to "make" your own raw food

here is why whole raw foods are better for your dog than ground raw foods: http://rawfed.com/myths/ground.html

and resources on how to do it: http://rawfed.com/myths/know.html

let's see a photo of your beautiful dog!

Thanks for the links...now here are some pictures!!! We have 6 dogs!

This is Piper with Kirby. Kirby is a rescued dog from Alberta. He is 7. We are not sure of his cross - we call him a North American Brown Dog:


This is the Chunk. She is an 11 year old ShihTzu - she is the quieen of our house:


This is Mackenzie - our wild child. She has aggression issues and she is also a rescued dog:

Good for you....the world needs more people like you who open their homes to all of these wonderful homeless furkids. We have somewhat small living quarters so we don't have the space to accomodate so many animals, but God I'd love to have a farm so that I could get as many dogs and cats as it would hold I'd just sleep in the barn or something
