I agree with everything she says! Particularly about canned, why more people dont feed canned if they are using pre made food is beyond me. One thing that bothers me a little is that people really get caught up in how horrible it is to do raw and get it wrong. If you go with prey model raw it really is almost just like throwing them hunks of meat and working it out over time. The example she uses of a bad diet is the same example everyone uses and it is just solved by "feed bone, any bone." There is a book I love- Feed your pet right- by Marion Nestle. You can get it at a bookstore or on Amazon and it is writen by a well known nitritionist. She is not really pro raw- she kinda wants you to home cook because of bones but other than that it is a great book. She says that you feed yourself without a PHD in nutrition, you feed your children without a PHD in nutrition, you don't need a PHD in nitrition to feed your dog either. Back before I had a chi it was health issues that drove us to raw and that book helped me learn what I needed about dog nutrition to make steps towards home prepared food. Couldn't recommend it more.
