What are some of the veggies to feed when you wanna start with the raw diet. I am still looking into it with all these recall's. Kane is kinda a picky eater. The first time he got raw meat he growled at it lol. He finally ate it and loved it. Raw chicken is the only thing i have gave him so far and i only gave him that once. If anyone has any good websites that would be great.
If we ban Pit Bulls and Rottweilers are humans some dont like next ?
He probably will not willingly eat veggies. You may need to grind them up and mix them up with meat. or if you have a juicer, make them into a juice and put them on the bottom of his bowl. Carrots, zucchini, spinach, kale, squash, yams, rutabega, etc. are all good to give.
You can also supplement his diet with salmon or sardine oil, sold in the all natural store. Or if you know a place that carries Solid Gold, see if they have the Solid Gold SeaMeal supplement (seaweed basically).

IMO, dogs don't need veggies. If you personally feel the dog should have some, I'd suggest baby food veggies...that way you don't have to worry about them being in a state that the dog can digest and benefit from.
All I can tell you is research, research, research. There are good arguments for both sides, and good arguments for the various types that exist on both sides (i.e., BARF vs. raw vs. home-cooked vs. holistic kibble vs. grain-free kibble vs. etc., etc. etc.--you get the drift).
Unfortunately, you have to wade through all the info that is available and decide for yourself what is best for your dog.
I can tell you what I think is best, but you may not agree. Somebody else thinks something else is best, and you may not agree with that either. You have to educate yourself on the various schools of thought on dog nutrition and go with the one that makes the most sense to you.
If you'd like to find out about a raw, prey-model diet (which is I what feed my boy), you can get lots of good info by joining this group:
That is a list of veggies, I toss mine in my blender or food procesor, along with low sodium broths, fish, apple cider vinigar, cubed, boneless meat, and ground meat. I toss these blends into muffin tins and freeze them into a portion sized "muffin." I label the bags so I can remember the blends I used, (I have one dog who hates fish.)
This is the method I have found to be easiest.
