lovemytb I have been getting raw food for my GSD and cats at My Pet Carnivore. I cannot say enough good things about them. The price is good and they deliver every month or have a drop off locations. I pickup my stuff at the drop off location and could not have been happier. I don't have to worry about trying to find food or getting raw that is well balanced for dogs. I highly recommend them. I am also from Chicago.

Lauri & The Gang The Chicago group can tell you of the places to purchase items. Bon Tons in Wheeling sells to raw feeders and many people do group orders from UWP in Madison.

Not meant to be "snide" .....just part of one's due diligence when deciding to feed raw and own a dog.

The problem with "cheap" chicken at many grocery stores is the fact that they plump the chickens....Plumping, also referred to as “enhancing” or “injecting,” is a term that describes the process by which some U.S. poultry companies inject raw chicken meat with saltwater, chicken stock, seaweed extract or some combination thereof. The practice is most commonly used for fresh chicken and is also used in frozen poultry products. Too much salt for the pooch.

There are many raw feeding groups and co-ops you can join which include the Chicago area, as I am sure there are thousands of pet owners who feed raw in your area. My point was, I found 2 sources in 30 seconds and I'll bet you can find dozens more. Try calling the dozens of meat processing and wholesale meat suppliers in your area and simply ask them what they do with the offal. Many times getting more "rural" uncovers great finds on raw. I drive 240 miles round trip once a month or so and score 200 lbs plus of most anything that comes on a cow,chicken etc. I pay .35-.50 a lb including green tripe, "oxtail", gullets, beef heart, etc. Even after gas it is a ton cheaper than any dog food one can buy....including the cheap crap. If you join into some of the raw groups out there, I am sure you will find a camaraderie amongst fellow raw feeders who pool their resources and certain individuals will do the driving at a nominal fee.

Here's a link specifically for the Chicago area of folks who are feeding raw and willing to shares their sources.

Here's another source from a group I joined....I'll bet you have more raw sources available near Chicago than I do in Minneapolis.

This place is only a $10 drop off fee...in Chicago area.

I'd find more raw sources for you but I bet you can do the same as I have done in 30 seconds and find all kinds of sources.
