Where can I buy Raw?

Any Raw feeders in CT?

I would like to feed my dog raw, so I am doing as much reading as I can, but I have no idea where I would buy the food.
Tks

I buy Halshans from a local specialty pet store.
http://www.halshan.com/
The website doesn't sell to the public, but if you call her and leave a message she will call you back and let you know if there is someone near you. If there isn't, I believe she will sell to you, but you have to buy like 50lbs. I like that they are wrapped in paper like a butcher does and are in 1lb packs.

The only thing I'd add to this is their diets do not seem to include ground bone. You will have to buy the ground chicken necks and add them to each meal otherwise your Hav will not get enough calcium which can cause major health problems later on.

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...

This seems pretty good! They certainly have quite the product list.

Yes Daniel, and not too expensive. I can actually drive to their facilities and pick up the food myself (which I prefer).
I bookmarked it.
Now, I have to learn how to feed raw to a puppy and get rid of this fear that the dog will choke.
Thanks everyone.

ETA: My DH goes fishing during the summer almost every weekend. I also have the option of fresh fish for once a week.

It is a complete meal if you get one of their meat with bones and veggies. She has these other two that arne't listed on her site called Prime Diet 1 and Prime Diet 2...they have meat, bone, veggies, blueberries, and more. She has it figured out to be complete...she is great, you can call her with questions.

Daniel, her website and list is very outdated. Everything I get has meat, ground bone, veggies, etc. I never fed Gracie anything from her without the bone.
They have a chicken, bone, and veggie that Gracie loved.
