Dog Food on the WILD Side!
Raw feeding is the hottest topic in dog care today. You may have heard about the “BARF” diet—Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods. Learn why and how to feed your dog this new (but really OLD) diet.
Dog owners are asking how they can feed their canine pal like their wild ancestors—uncooked, unprocessed, RAW meat, bones and veggies--instead of those boring “kibble krunchies”.
Raw Dog Food: Make It Easy for You and Your Dog explains in simple, friendly and understandable terms the logic behind this approach. Author Carina MacDonald, in this fun and slightly irreverent book, shows you how feeding your dog a raw diet can be effective, economical, and easy for you, and healthy for your dog.

What reviewers are saying...
This is a useful and very user-friendly primer on practical ways to feed dogs raw foods.
Dr. W. Jean Dodds, DVM, Lecturer, Canine Health Expert
Her easygoing writing style makes this an enjoyable and educational tale. A self proclaimed fanatic when it comes to her dogs’ health, she dove into the raw food debate and did her own research, which led to her conversion to this eating program.
For anyone considering this dietary approach, MacDonald provides a good starting point.

Food can be fun and if you like to laugh in the kitchen, you'll enjoy the raw humor in this book.
Kymythy R. Schultze, CCN, AHI author of Ultimate Diet: Natural Nutrition For Dogs and Cats
First impressions of the presentation and style are entirely favourable. I think Carina has advanced the cause of raw feeding and dog owners will like the book.
Tom Lonsdale DVM, author of Raw Meaty Bones
Just finished reading Carina's book and am impressed. I have been feeding raw for over five years and can identify with the struggle people go through when first starting to feed raw. Carina's book is excellent for someone changing to raw. It gives good advice, menus to follow, innovative ideas and a sense of confidence that will certainly be helpful to the first time raw feeder. Wish it had been available when I started feeding raw.

Carina (MacDonald) has taken the mystery and confusion out of raw feeding with her book Raw Dog Food. Make It Easy For You and Your Dog. This is a great reference for anybody new to feeding raw, and it's especially helpful for anyone who is intimidated by the whole idea. Carina's direct, refreshing style makes for easy reading, and her straight-forward advice and menu ideas will make feeding raw a piece of cake!

“Over the past decade or so, some dog owners have adopted the practice of feeding their dogs’ raw food… MacDonald is not a veterinarian or expert in canine nutrition. She’s an informed dog owner who wrote the book that she wishes had been available when she started out feeding raw… The strength of this book is it’s friendly, “been there, done that” approach… This book provides a reassuring, practical, and attainable approach to feeding raw. MacDonald writes with an earthy tone, using humor and empathy to convey her message that feeding raw can benefit your dog and doesn’t have to be complicated or scary.”
