    I quit feeding raw because my DH threw a royal fit about the raw chicken in the fridge. Well, that and the blood covering the bathtub when I thawed that last case of beefhearts.

    I know several people that feed raw. They shop around for bargains, spend a weekend a month cooking and freezing things to add to the raw meat, and most have an extra freezer just for "dogfood".

    More if I track it down...
    Ty val, what a great site, as well as the boxer one. I'm starting to realize that there is MUCH more to this barf diet than I first thought. I didnt realize one had to prepare the meat and veggies and I know that is something I simply don't have the time to do. There is a lot of conflicting information on feeding a raw diet it seems, depending on who you talk to. Each side seems to think it's more healthy for our pets to either feed or not feed a raw diet. I did read something of interest though on a pro barf diet site. It said that if you could not feel the ribs of your dog, it was getting too much and if you could 'see' the ribs on your dog, it was not getting enough. My sister-in-laws brother adopted a greyhound and has her on the barf diet. I was quite concerned because I could see each one of her ribs and when I voiced my concern, I was told she was healthy and that was how she was supposed to look.

    Someone stated they thought the barf diet might be a fad....maybe. I have seen many ads in the paper here over the past few years about raw food diets, but never gave them any thought untill recently. One thing I do know is I wont just jump in and switch my dog to it. I still have much more research to do, but so far it's looking.....

    The "feel them but not see them" for the ribs is a pretty classic guideline,
    but greyhounds are a little different story and can in fact look thinner to
    people and be more difficult to put weight on, I seriously doubt it has
    much to do with raw fed.

    Well, at the very least this has been an interesting "exercise" for us, and I
    commend you for doing the work up front. There's a lot who wouldn't
    on many things concerning their dogs!!

    Take care

    There are plenty of reasons to feed your pet something other than junk food for dogs. I am a nutrition educator for humans and support the biologically appropriate raw food idealogically. For people who don't want to go through the effort to make their own, but have a little money to spend, there's also Prairie Brand or Nature's Variety frozen raw food. It's nutritionally balanced and an okay comprimise, IMO.
