  1. BARF diet help needed!

    BARF and Alternative Feeding
    Hello all! I have been feeding my dogs store-bought BARF patties every evening, and a high quality dry kibble every morning for years now, but two months ago I decided to switch them completely to raw. I have been doing a lot of research and plucked up the courage to make my own raw dog food...
  2. Training treats

    Raw Feeding
    Hi everyone, Does anyone have suggestions for treats on a raw diet? My dog is reactive and requires small, frequent, "clean" treats on walks. I used kibble pieces in the past, but now I'm not sure what would be best for her. It's definitely not an option to carry around bits of raw meat every...
  3. Question About Amount of Bone Needed Per Week

    Raw Feeding
    I have an older dog, now at least, who has been on raw since 1 June 2010. Last year we noticed problems with severe constipation so we added 1/2 cup of pumpkin to his daily diet each morning.

  7. Raw food twice a week?

    Raw Feeding
    I have a pit bull terrier who is almost 4 months. I feed him blue wilderness kibble but wanted to feed him raw food cause I've heard so much good things. However, i cant afford a full on raw food diet and was wondering if it would still be beneficial if i fed him a raw meal twice a week.
