Question Recommended Reading On Raw?

We've recently been experimenting feeding our dogs raw meat, fish, & bones and was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to suggest any good reading material on raw feeding? I've noticed that there are a lot of books out there but would like some titles members really found useful. Thanks.

Well, it may also come down to which one you can find. I would say Kymythy Schultze only because it's readily available, is a small book, not technical and has lots of handy charts of what's good for what. If you can't find any let me know, I have others and kept a list of ones I read but didn't buy (from the library).

Wow, great list. I just picked up the "Holistic Guide For A Healthy Dog" (the only book I could find in reference to raw-feeding at the local Indigos). I totally forgot about the library . I'll stop in before leaving for our holidays. Thanks so much.
