I only read this book because I already respect Dog Dad Offical as a fellow feeder and like him as a human. But I was completely blown away by how he was able to present such a complicated topic in a clean and effective way that even inspired me to learn more.

When I heard about National Raw Feeding Week 2018 I wanted to contribute. So here is my list of resources for the raw dog food beginner.
I mean if dogs are supposed to have a diet based on animal proteins should they eat eggs for protein also? Will they get sick? Can they eat them every day? Do they need to be cooked? What about the shell?
When I started raw feeding I had to make the change from simply scooping out two scoops of kibble to actually calculating how much I should feed by the pound and them making sure I stocked that much in my freezer to last till my next shipment. It was a huge inconvenience and the math seemed daunting. Not because I didn't know how but because I was just not used to doing it.

I realized them that I was a fool. Toppers are a great way to start down a path of proper doggo nutrition.
