My vet recommends it, but she also recommended starting by using a prepared raw diet rather than trying it yourself to begin with, the place where they sell raw food here also has a holistic vet come in to do information sessions on the raw food before people buy it.
At the moment mine is only going to be a supplement to their Evo rather than the main food.
I started that way too... I too am lucky enough to have a vet who recommends raw ... Most arent as lucky as us
