Nancy, I have been there and done that. I just couldn't bring myself to feed raw for over a year. So I nuked or saute'd the NV medallions (and I didn't find the smell appealing) But I have to say when I finally listened to everyone and fed it to my boys as it was meant to be fed, ummm raw, I saw a huge difference in their energy level, their coats, and it even cured one of my boys nasty habit of poop eating. When you cook the raw (which is formulated to be eaten raw) you deplete the nutrients and the enzymes. Also, I have been told that the bone in the raw changed completely when cooked and can in fact be dangerous when cooked.
If you really can't bring yourself to feed raw you would be better off with just kibble or canned. But once you get used to it, it really isn't bad. I have found it is less messy if I feed them slightly frozen. I take out just what I need at dinner time and let them thaw just enough so I can cut them. The boys like it too because it is more chewing.
