Raw/BARF diet

Following my recent Ridgeback thread, I'm looking into raw feeding of some kind. It seems so complicated. To be convinced (and I'd like to do it as it sounds great) I'd like to hear from anyone who feeds raw.

It's the practicalities that concern me most; where do you feed (small ish garden, young children running around house/garden), cost/sourcing, prep - sometimes pouring kibble and a splash of water in a bowl feels hard by the evening grin

BARF looks really complicated too.

Sorry, it was a drumstick that I gave her, she's a cavalier, shouldn't she be having chicken wings either? She's been having 2 chicken wings a couple of times a week, chews them well and loves them. The minced stuff she just gulps down and looks for more!

I'm sure chicken wings are fine for a cav...it's a rottie I've got, that's why I was saying about it being too small for him, he's got a huge mouth and no common sense, lol

Sorry - I did just mean for mine, not in general, chicken wings are great, unless you've got a dog with a giant head. smile I started mine on chicken wings, but he was smaller then, probably about cav size, though he still had a big head, lol.

You just need to watch out for bones that are too small, but with a small dog that's smaller and some big dogs chew small things anyway. If your dog is chewing chicken wings then it's not an issue at all.
