Great Guide for Raw Feeders Jun 6, 2008
Relaxed and funny, this book is a great guide for dog owners new to raw feeding.
A great "how-to" and a fun read May 11, 2008
I love this little book. It's a great "how-to" overview that's great for people starting out, and an interesting addition for people who have been raw feeding for a while. The author touches on the major issues with feeding a raw diet and then gives a simple breakdown of the diet. The author - in plain language - discusses meats, veggies, bones, supplements, food prep, and "troubleshooting."
This book is not very in-depth, but it's not full of "fluff" either. There aren't a bunch of anecdotes/testimonials filling the pages. The book delves straight into the basics of how to feed raw and how to spend a minimal amount of time preparing food.
I read the reviews of this book before buying it, and I don't see a basis for the few reviews that were critical. It does follow the Billinghurst-style raw diet, but it's not unrealistically rigid. The author is clear that she is not a vet or a nutritionist. This is a how-to book, and it does a great job of covering the basics of the diet in layman's terms.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone considering a raw diet who is feeling overwhelmed, as well as to anyone who hasn't gotten the kinks out of feeding raw yet.
Raw food diet Apr 20, 2008
This book provides some great tips for switching feeding the dogs from packaged food to a Raw Dog Food Diet.
A good start Apr 17, 2008
I liked this book because it provided more of the logistical aspects to raw feeding. It includes how to get started, how to shop for foods, how to store foods, etc. It definitely a good book if you've decided to feed raw. If you're not yet convinced to feed raw yet and want to read more about the science behind it, try Natural Nutrition for Dogs and Cats by Kymythy Schultze. I think it's a more comprehensive guide on why to feed raw, where as this one is more focused on how to feed raw.

This book is a great starting point for first time Raw feeding. Its light easy to read. It starts with the basics. No fuss or lectures! There is plenty of other books out there more indepth to read after you have mastered the basics.
