As for feeding domestic animals raw food, it is dangerous to certain breeds (like a lot of "pure" breeds and toys). Mutts aren't always exempt back to their feral genes, but if he/she is doing fine without reaction or food allergies - go for it. Just be careful of small splintery bones, and behavior can be affected by certain foods.
I'm going slightly off topic here...oh well.
Raw for animals is actually less prone to allergies than commercially available dog food and is also plenty safe if you do it properly in the beginning. Allergies are why I switched to raw in the first place. Dogs need to relearn how to chew their food, but once they do they thrive beautifully. The bones people need to worry about are the cooked ones. Raw bones, if not chewed properly, come out like wet noodles. And behavior has been affected as well, positively. She doesn't need to chew on stuff anymore and has more appropriate energy, meaning she has it when she needs it in surplus.
Ah hell, I should just start a thread on this in the proper forum.
