I use the same towel outside on the patio for a week or more without washing it and my dogs don't get sick, I have handled it and I haven't gotten sick. I don't even wash their bowls but maybe once a week, they clean them themselves. I really wish a wolf could talk, I bet if we could tell them what was being said about eating raw he would LHAO.

Thanks to Tracy and several others that helped me learn around raw my gang has been raw fed since February. I do breed, hence my bitch was raw fed. She was fed on the 80/10/10 prey model diet and had ABSOLUTELY no issues during her pregnancy or whelping. Her puppies are 3 weeks old as of yesterday. They were introduced yesterday morning for their VERY first meal of ground raw chicken necks and let me tell you something they jumped on that faster than any kibble, soft food, baby food, scrambled egg, cottage cheese or what have you that some breeders start their babies on. Now mind you...they have absolutely NO teeth at all and they had no issues eating their ground chicken necks. Here are some pictures of them enjoying the food nature intended for them to eat. Oh and no one got ill effects from eating it.






Traci...what a nice surprise to see your post....the puppies are adorable....I miss seeing your fur family...please post some pics....hugs to that special little man of yours...

Kathleen

No, not true.

Myths About Raw: Does raw meat make dogs aggressive?

However, it is good to brush up on resource guarding, what it is and how to handle/control it. Many dogs who are put on raw love it and if anyone tries to take it away, they can get a bit grouchy and possessive. This is a training issue, not so much a food issue.

But as for raw making them want to bite people? Nah.

I read the title of the thread & my eyes bugged out of my head!

Didn't have time to read everyone's posts but, all I can say is, "The Proof Is In The Pudding" - I would NEVER have believed the benefits of raw, not in a million years but the way my dogs are, their coats, their breath, their poops, their eyes, their EVERYTHING, is living breathing proof that it is by far and away superior to commercial crap.

If you listen to a vet you'll more than likely be thrown a bag of Science Diet - I wouldn't even feed that to the fish!!!!! If any doubt remains, check youtube for the secretly filmed videos about euthanised animals going to dog food processing plants.

Just use common sense. Dogs have thrived on raw foods since time began. It is what they are meant to eat. Nature's model is always best.

Do some reading. Do some research. Compare pros and cons of ANY food you choose to feed. If worrying about raw feeding keeps you up at night, don't feed it. Choosing what to feed your dog is a personal decision. Of course input from others is important and valuable. But do what you are comfortable with.

I have raw fed Brody since he was 4 months old. My only regret is that I would have started him on raw the day I brought him home.

If you are curious, you can go to youtube and put in 'raw feeding puppies' or a similar search and you will find a TON of videos on puppies being weaned straight from momma's milk to raw foods.

Feeding raw is similar to the debate between breast feeding and bottle feeding human babies. Would any of us argue that breast is best? Of course it is best. But do bottle fed babies thrive on processed formula? Of course they do. Make a decision that YOU feel comfortable with. Just as with any subject - there are a million opinions. Make up your own mind as to what is best to feed your puppy and go from there.
I can tell you, I was a child 50, 60 years ago, they got table scraps, cooked food.
