This book is a great starter read, but not written in stone. Personally, I do not feed complete barf as I don't believe dogs NEED veggies. Can they benefit, yes....but it is not necessary as Dr. Billinghurst believes. I am between prey model and BARF as I do supplement and I also add yogurt and cottage cheese on occasion.
I suggest reading this book, as well as many others. There are several good websites as well (just double and triple check what you read online). Also, look for yahoo groups....if you are lucky you will find a co-op in your area to buy from a raw food supplier, makes it easier.
Be it prey model, whole prey, or barf....going raw is the best thing you will do for your dogs. I am on month 6 of raw feeding and my dogs coats have never been shinier or silkier. They also shed less, their teeth are fantastically white and they eagerly await mealtime. Their poo is half the size (I have XL breed dogs)and has minimal odor. It also crumbles into white powder after a day or two. I am lucky in that there are many raw feeders in my area (whom I found via yahoo), a lot are well respected individuals in the animal rescue community be it behaviorists, or business owners.
