    Hi can anyone give me a few book titles that are for raw feeding that are pretty informative? I would like to not have to feed vegetables if that's possible. Thanks

    You don't have to feed veggies. I don't.

    I don't feed veggies either. I don't know any good books, but this site is super informative The Many Myths of Raw Feeding
    I also don't think that many books would be terribly helpful since the information can potentially outdated. A lot of what I've learned, too, has been from reading the threads on this forum.

    Look up books by Dr. Tom Lonsdale. He has one called "Work Wonders", and he has others I just can't remember the names. You can find them on Amazon, and maybe book stores too.

    Vegetables are not needed, so no need to feed them anyway. Most are hard to digest at all without being puréed first, and what little may be in them is already in raw meat/bones/organs, in a much more biologically appropriate form the dogs body can use.

    Great! My manager has just started feeding her 70ish staffy more of a barf diet. I told her I'd rather not do that with my dogs.

    Wow there is a whole bunch of information from that website! Pretty much everything I was looking for I believe. Thank you!

    Is $1.18 a pound for a whole chicken a deal or not a deal?

    No problem on that link! I love all the good info on there.

    I can get my chicken for around 65-80 cents a pound around here, but 1.18 doesn't sound bad? I usually get quarters not whole chicken. Also, make sure the meat isn't enhanced, meaning the sodium content per serving is under 85 mgs. It's too hard on their kidneys to try and process all that salt.

    Depends on where you live. Here, in Western New York, I see whole chicken on sale anywhere between .69 - .99 per pound and Chicken Leg Quarters as low as .29 per pound. BUT this varies drastically based on your location. I also just paid $2.79 per pound for whole sirloin tip roasts and was just quoted $3.10 per pound for certified Black Angus Round Roasts in quantities of 60 pounds.
