Some of the many diets I read about were: Raw Meaty Bones, Bones And Raw Food (BARF), Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (BARF), homemade cooked dog meals, raw vegetables with cooked chicken and rice, and a variety of other feeding beliefs. Each diet I read about was written by dog owners that were completely sold on their programs, which made sorting through their persuasive verbage pretty intimidating. Some were created as a response to the deaths from prepared kibbles, others were created because of health problems, and still others were developed by the "crunchy-granola" - those that run through organic fields on bare-feet, sporting tie-dyed tee shirts. You get the picture.
I did some soul searching and decided to follow my heart. My mother told me when I was a new mother that I should do what I feel is right. All the good advice on earth may not suit you and your baby. I applied this to my pet, and I did what I felt was best for my convenience and financial situation, and most importantly, best for my dog's health.
My choice was Raw Meaty Bones.
