Internally dogs are basically wolves. It makes absolutely no sense to me to feed your dog cooked food as its main diet. Where would a wolf get cooked rice with vitamins sprayed on top?. My last Border Collie died of an abdominal tumour at age 11. In his last 3 years he suffered itchy skin, arthritis, occasional eye infections and the vet could not explain any of it as he had been cared for by the vets guide book. He did get bones but his diet was mainly premium kibble. For me, dog food is like junk food. Your dog can tolerate it occasionally. My almost 4 year old Border Collie gets a huge variety of raw food and only occasionally anything else. She is a picture of health and energy and I expect to live a very long healthy life.

What about Germs from the raw
The digestive juices of our canines are more than 50% hydrochloric acid. It is very deadly to the bacteria that your dogs ingest. Dog/wolves in the wild are exposed to all kinds of e-coli, salmonella, etc all the time and suffer no ill effects from it. (Afterall they lick their butts all the time!) A canine in the wild can stumble upon a carcass of a prey animal that has been dead for a week or more and will gladly eat it. I had a Golden Retriever whose favorite treat was a road kill squirrel that had been dead and laying in the hot sunshine for about a week. Whenever she ate one, there was never any side effects from it. Its safe to feed your dogs meat that has gone bad in the refrigerator. Don't worry about germs when feeding your dog. It's a non-issue. I have never heard of a dog nor a family member getting sick from feeding your dog raw.

Thats it. If you have more questions, feel free to ask me and I'll add them to the list. :) This is raw feeding in a nutshell. To learn more about raw feeding: Read the book "Works Wonders" by Dr. Tom Lonsdale You can find it at "" . You may download it for a very small fee in PDF format.

My dog has huge food allergies and we have gone through many foods to find something she likes, and does not cause digestion upset. She reacts so badly with food allergies that she lost all her digestion flora and it took 2 months to get reestablished. We went to raw venison. We purchase it from a producer of raw meat for dogs. The meat also has kelp and carrot added. Her meat comes frozen and in an appropriate size for her meal. All I have to do is take out of the freezer what I need for the next feed and thaw it in the fridge. When I serve it, it must be cold to the touch. It is amazing the difference we have seen, including no eye staining which she had when she was on kibble. It cost but it is worth it to us.

Great article. Owner's who put their dog(s) on a raw food diet need to make sure there is a balance between meat (muscle tissue), bone and organ. This is criticle for optimal health. The meat should also be organic, is a great resource. Green tripe (the stomach lining, intestines plus the contents) is also important. Feed 1-2 times per week. I have 2 Doxin's, about 12 pounds each and they get 1/2 pound of meat per day. They also get Garden of Life Primal Defense, the good bacteria, a couple times a week. They are thriving and beautiful...they have had this diet since puppies. Some dogs can go 100% raw immediately and some older dogs need to be adjusted slowly, mixing a small amount of raw, organic meat with their dry food. The health benefits are amazing.

NEVER EVER feed your dog raw food that isn't organic, the chances of contamination are much higher. Also, the meat should be frozen,, then thawed before feeding, helping to potentially kill any harmful organisms. Again, is a great company which makes this diet affordable. I am a happy, long term customer.

What I am more concerned about are the things Romeo, my 13 yr old Border Collie manages to eat that he REALLY shouldn't. Like the Silpat silicon baking sheet he snagged during a cookout yesterday.
