As many know, I feed a prey model raw diet. I have had several friends ask me where they can find information about feeding raw, and the various types of raw. I have compiled a list of books, blogs, and links that I both enjoy and feel would be helpful to those interested in raw.
I regularly blog about raw. The following links are within my own blog.
Raw Meals-I take a cell phone picture of nearly all of my dogs' meals, and do a weekly post chronicling what they ate for the week.
Raw Prep-some of these posts are also weekly meal posts, but include information on how I prep and/or portion meat to feed it to my dogs.
Raw Meat Sources and Scores are posts about sourcing raw meat for raw feeding dogs.
