A raw diet consists of raw meat and bones, raw shredded vegetables, organ meat, and supplements. Mordy's right--if you cook it, it ain't raw anymore . We feed it to our girls because 1. it's natural 2. we've had great results.
No touchy.

Thanks for explaining it. I was really confused about the whole thing. You're always told never to eat raw meat so I just figured that if raw meat wasn't good for us then it wasn't good for them either. I'll still to giving him the eagle pack though, I don't think I would be able to give him what he needed if I started him on a raw diet.

Yeah. It's not for everyone. I'm going to start doing it just because I can't seem to get a brand of dog food up here that I'm happy with. Seems that feeding a variety is key among other things.

yep, the heinz kind isn't what you want. it's far too processed.

the brand i buy is bragg, which is organic and untreated.
