Welcome to the Raw Learning website.
The aim of this site is to provide information on raw feeding pets, such as dogs, cats, and ferrets – feeding them an all natural and unprocessed diet which such carnivores have evolved to eat.
Yes dogs, cats, and ferrets are carnivores – a scientific fact, not something I’ve made up.
This site has existed for over 10 years, and attracted over one million hits (although for those of you who have visited before you’ll note the vastly improved format!), without advertising or promotion, just simple no nonsense facts.
You will find on these pages that I’m pretty blunt about things when it comes to raw feeding our pets. That’s because we shouldn’t be putting processed foods in our pets’ mouth regardless of how slick the advertising is, and regardless of how busy you are. Feeding a raw diet once you get your head around it is easy peasy.
For my latest rants for March 2015, click here.
Let me make this very clear to you, I make no money from recommending a raw diet, so you can be assured, by making such recommendations, I get no financial kickbacks, nor will ever seek any.
I only recommend feeding raw because I want your dogs to be getting the diet that will make them the healthiest that they can possibly be.

i am from India and i am a new person in this pet’s world.. i have brought a German shepherd puppy she is 2 and half month old.. when i brought to my home she is little bit weak as the vet said.. and i am treating her as the vet says… she is eating pedigree.. i have been searching that what is good for my puppy and i was totally unknown about raw feeding.. but now i got to know that dogs are meant to eat raw.. she has been eating kibbles from 1 month.. how can i introduce raw to my puppy ?? and i thank you that i found you here.. because our vet says raw isn’t good for dog at all… hope you will guide me in everything….
the best thing you can do at this point is continue your learning. The best forum is the raw feeding forum on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/groups/rawfeedingcarnivores – there are a substantial number of files there to read through that will help you establish a good learning platform.
Hello, I am really interested in feeding my puppy a raw diet. I have been researching and found some good info. I am really concerned about the cost of feeding raw. I am also really confused on where to start as there are a bunch of different recommendations. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks
what budget are you working to at the moment?
I want to shift my 13 yrs pomerian dog on raw. Is it safe for him. M worried about bones. Will bones harm him as he sometimes gulp his food. With part of chicken should i start?
thanks for your note. There are a lot of people who have switched their older dogs to raw. Before you take the plunge, can I recommend you join the raw feeding group at facebook and read through the archives there for a whole heap of useful information: http://www.facebook.com/group/rawfeedingcarnivores
Hi jane, thanks for ur reply. M feeling good now that many people have switched their old dogs on raw. Will join the facebook group. Thanks
yes we’re definitely seeing it. I run a raw feeding boarding kennel and switch over dogs of all ages, although sometimes the small guys can be a bit tougher to switch. Let me know how you get on.
Hi I am in the 1st week of transitioning. And have my proteins lined up on when to offer and how long before moving to the next. What I am wondering is if anyone has a raw feeding schedule they would be willing to share. I breed dachshunds so I am switching over 6. They are all getting 5.5 oz a day. We have a lot of supply of elk and deer so would like to work those in as much as possible. Thanks so much. Also what supplements does everyone give. Mine are currently getting 1tsp coconut oil, omega supplement chew. And my dilute girls are getting 1 tsp kelp daily.
what sort of schedule were you looking for? In terms of supplements, mine get none. Neither coconut oil nor kelp are of any benefit to dogs.
