And thus it begins

Joining the forum as we adopted our first dog last week, and now are all set up on the raw diet for her. She has proven to be a fussy eater before now, so implementation will be a challenge, but we're even more stubborn than her so all should work out in the long run. We are using the Carnivora products. Today marks day 1. She took a few bites but generally uninterested. We expected that. We'll try again tonight. I no luck tomorrow I'll mix in some tripe.

Carnivora (formerly Urban Carnivore) is a great food! Peewee was on it for awhile for half his meals, but now I have the big dog it's quite pricey!

If your dog is having troubles adjusting you can start by cooking the patties, and then slowly cook them less and less.
