Default How to start on raw feeding

So I'm looking into getting Sam on a raw diet and was wondering how much more expensive it is. Also I have no idea how or where to start so if you guys have any suggestions, books, websites ect. It would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!

aw youre welcom!
if you get a stand alone freezer try to get a tall one, not the chest ones, they are a pain in the butt as you have to bendover to get the raw frozen food out lol and a stand up one is much better

I think I saw a thread in here some time ago with all the raw feeders and a pic of their freezers! It's quite something!
