The first thing everyone who is new should do is join the PhxBarf email group (Barf refers to “bones and raw food”, an older colloquialism for the raw diet that’s been trademarked by Dr. Billinghurst, an early evangelist of the diet). This can be found at

In addition to a database of local vets, other food sources and local dog groups, the list is THE place to ask a question, introduce yourself, and get a wealth of advice.

Following that, there are also a wealth of other national raw feeding advice groups, some ar even breed specific, and as varied as raw feeding for vegetarians to raw feeding for breeders.

If your question isn’t answered there, please feel free to email Susan at Suzy’s Doggie Delights and she will do her best to give you advice or point you in a direction.
