RAW FED AND NERDY
For the Nerds
Defined by Science
RAW FED AND NERDY was created in response to the growing concern regarding the lack of nutritional guidelines being considered when raw feeding. Raw Fed and Nerdy is science based raw feeding. RFN is primarily a Facebook Group Community for those feeding raw and wishing to collaborate with other raw feeders utilizing specific nutritional guidelines of dogs and cats, and venture away from pop-cultural raw feeding guidelines and hardcore ratio antics. Raw feeders using nutrient guidelines face unique challenges. As a community driven group, we bring together science based sources for nutritional excellency. Raw Fed and Nerdy also provides education in cooked, homemade diets and education in commercial food selection.
All admins are enrolled in or have taken pet nutrition courses and actively work in science based raw feeding.
We are a small, motivated, community driven, and well researched group.
