Absolutely not a problem. Puppies fed on raw grow at a steadier rate and avoid the problems associated with the sudden growth spurts that are seen in kibble fed pups. Remarkably prey animals have exactly the right balance of all the minerals and such its almost like mother nature had a plan.
Unless your breeder feeds raw or you can talk to experienced people about raw feeding and create a suitable diet plan, I wouldn't do it. One of my dogs was a raw fed as a pup but I had 40 years of experience behind the feeding plan I used.
I'm with Trickster on this one. IF we get a little brother or sister for Ender, I won't feed RAW unless I'm super comfortable and have a very strict plan with my breeder being consulted and with me on it full board.
http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/rawfeeding/ is a really good email group, and so is http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/rawchat/ They are both really full of info on feeding raw to both puppies and adults. Rawfeeding deals strictly with what when and how to feed. Raw chat deals with all other aspects of feeding raw. And you can check out http://www.rawlearning.com/rawfaq.html as another source. I urge you to learn and read everything you can get your hands on. (I spent probably an easy 200 hours doing resaerch because I couldn't believe it was so simple) My only regret was not switching her to raw as soon as I got Amber as a puppy. I didn't switch her till she was 6 months old but the next puppy I get will be raw from the begining.
Good luck and I hope your puppy does well no matter what you choose.
Linda, my next puppy will come home and be put on a raw diet. As said, they grow at a more natural rate. Lots of info out there on how to feed raw to puppies. One of my staff members, her Aussie breeder actually weens to raw.
