We feed a raw diet to our dogs.. I'm not the greatest at explaining, and there are some excellent sites out there, so I'll just post those. However, since switching from kibble to a raw diet, our dogs have better coats, MUCH healthier teeth and gums (and breath), are more alert, actually look forward to their meals (this including our big male who was ALWAYS picky with kibble). It is just much better for them, and while it may sound like much work, it's not too bad once you get your routine going. It's no more expensive than kibble. And you can vary it so widely ... anyway. On to the links. The search for better dog nutrition marches on <--- lists the basic idea behind it. Benefits of Dog's Raw Diet <---- lists the many benefits of raw diet, as well as debunks some myths about it Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (BARF) <---lists a basic menu and how to prepare it Raw-Feeding a Sick Dog <--- not a lot of information on the actual raw-feeding process, but it's a good story Raw Feeding @ Wayeh Kennels <---has a fascinating bit about raw-feeding puppies and the differences they saw between kibble-fed and raw-fed puppies I hope everyone gets something out of these links. Good day!
