    Hi there!

    My "starting out" book was Kymythy Schultze's "Natural Nutrition for dogs and cats". It was a really great book that laid everything out in a recipe style, so it made switching over from kibble VERY easy, as I was really worried about it initially. I didn't stay with that formula for very long though, once I gained confidence I changed it up a bit.

    Also, if you're looking for homecooked, this is a good site: www.balanceit.com

    For good web reading (mostly on raw diets):

    http://www.rawfed.com/myths/
    http://www.rawlearning.com/

    Other books:

    Whole Health for Happy Dogs: A Natural Health Handbook for Dogs and Their Owners, by Jill Elliot, Kim Blommer, and Nick Ridley

    Raw Dog Food: Make it Easy for You and Your Dog, by Carina Beth Macdonald

    Work Wonders: Feed Your Dog Raw Meaty Bones, by Tom Londsdale

    Good luck!

    Hi there, I dont have a lab (anymore) as you can tell by my siggy, but I can recommend some good websites (since Baloo did the honors and threw out the good books). You dont really need a "lab specific" book/site, although "lab specific natural diet sites" (like this part of JL are nice!)

    Some Forums:

    Yahoo! Group for Raw Feeding Labs: http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/LabradorRawFeeding/

    Yahoo! Group Raw Feeding: http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/rawfeeding/

    Some Websites:

    http://rawfed.com/
    http://www.rawlearning.com
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raw_feeding
    http://k9joy.com/education/feedyourdog.php
    (This one is by our very own "Fallriver" she has GORGEOUS labbys!) http://www.fallriverlabs.com/Feeding...r%20Puppy.html

    I hope this helps some! Congrats on making the leap to more natural foods for you puppers! (your dog is gorgeous btw!)
    Love,<br />Giuli<br /><br />
