Raw dog food for beginners? Should I stop feeding mine?

We recently got our very first dog, and we're going to be getting a second. We're very excited and nervous to be getting a puppy and can't decide what kind of dog food to start her off on. We've read a few different posts with people saying they feed raw dog food to their puppies, and a few people who have read dog food labels are saying that there's no difference between "raw" and "non-raw" dog food. In our case, when we are given raw meat by our vet, we mix it with his recommended dog food for about 2 weeks. Is this not good for our puppy, or are we just being overcautious with her diet?

We do feed raw bones. When I was growing up, dogs would have bones from breakfast, lunch and dinner. I do it also with him now and my vet does it too. I do know that there is a big difference from fed cooked bones and raw bones, like the fact that cooked bones harden and become brittle and that raw bones are chewy.

What's your vet's recommendation for bones to start your puppy off on? We're getting a large puppy, so I'm assuming he'll have some hard bits of ribs that will need to be put to use and broken up.

Your vet should recommend bones that your pup will be comfortable with, but be prepared to give in to his or her preferences.

We start all of our doggies on raw meat (not bones). Sometimes they don't like it but when they do, they don't fight us or even let us know they are done. I don't know of any downside.

I've known of some owners who have fed raw meat bones to their dogs for the bones' chewing qualities and are not interested in the risk of disease. I will not be giving my new puppy bones with meat on them, however, because I don't want to risk getting sick myself.
