Posted this under Large Breed puppy feeding but didn’t get a response so thought I’d try here…
Is anyone familiar with the k9instinct website? Looks interesting but would like more info before investing in their resources. Looks like a good site to help with feeding raw without spending a fortune.
I looked at their website then, but it really doesn’t have enough info for me to evaluate it other than to say it doesn’t have enough info. I noticed that you could purchase a diet consultation for this that and the other, but not for large breed puppies. I have no way of knowing whether or not their books would be worthwhile. Sorry I’m not more help. You could try posting this on the review side under off topic and see if Hound Dog Mom sees it. She is the one most likely to know something about it.
Thanks Patty. I noticed they were offering special pricing of all 4 books for $25C so I just decided to do it. All the information on this site (DFA) is amazing but for me it’s difficult to digest because it’s in so many bits and pieces. I need it consolidated in one place, at least to get started. I’m sure I’ll be back here when I have specific questions.
So far the first several pages have been interesting and useful as they’re explaining why a raw diet is so beneficial. Very detailed info regarding digestion, anatomy, benefits of raw but written so a lay-person can understand.

Then that sounds excellent! And $25C doesn’t sound like you are out too much even if all you get out of it is a better understanding of the issues, so it sounds great. I agree, BTW, about how the bits and pieces here and there are hard to digest. I needed it all in one place too. I started feeding raw by using a premix, then read every website I could find, then got a couple books. At that point I was finally starting to get comfortable with the idea that I could follow a recipe and make my own raw foods Now, I still use some recipes as a baseline, but I modify them all over the place, or I get grinds and add stuff to complete them. I use a little commercial raw too Sometimes I need an easy meal.
I actually tried to go through a couple of the forums that are relevant for my situation and pull out the significant information into a document. FAIL! If I had endless time (which means not having two large breed pups and an adult GSD!) I’d love to do it.
Would be great if some of the major contributors in various areas would do an FAQ (raw feeding, Feeding Large Breed Puppies are my big interests-hint hint). Or even get a few together and do your own ebook and charge a fee for it. I know I’d pay as I’ve been so impressed with the knowledge and experience of several contributors.
Just my 2 cents.
I keep a card file so when I find a tidbit that I really like, I have a place to put it.
