    I recommend that anyone who is new to fresh food feeding do some reading (Kymythy Schultze’s book is a great place to start) and consider getting further support from others (on my site or from one of the following sites or lists):

    Thanks for sharing Dr. Jeff. This would really help as I’ve been feeding my dogs with commercial dog food for several years and I wanted to make a switch this time by introducing healthier foods.



    I am always trying to get my rescue group friends to feed raw and organic. The same comment keeps coming up: I can’t afford it. Is there anyway to feed raw and organic that is affordable with someone on a limited budget?…or any ideas on at least incorporating it into the diet?


    Dr. Jeff Feinman

    Great question! In some cases, feeding raw is less expensive than feeding a commercial (and processed) food. This doesn’t even include the potential medication and vet bill savings.

    I usually advise starting with chicken quarters, backs, or other poultry parts that can be inexpensively incorporated into the diet (often for under a dollar a pound).

    Many markets sell less desirable cuts of beef, pork, etc. for very affordable prices.

    In addition, many pet stores and online sources will give rescue groups a discount (especially if they buy in bulk or are a 501c3).

    Unfortunately, affordable organic foods can be more difficult to find. The best bet usually is to befriend a local farmer or butcher that might even give away the less desirable cuts.

    There are also multiple affordable online sources (and mothers that deliver bulk orders to designated pickup spots).
