At what age can raw start being fed on a regular basis?

If they can eat on their own then they can be fed raw :)

go for it!! If the dog is too young to chew up the bones, just smash em up with a hammer.

How long will it take their stomachs to get use to the food and are there any particular shots they have to have for salmonilla or any other bacteria(<not sure how to spell it)?

Dogs are not afflicted with the same types of issues (i.e., salmonella) that humans are.

Cooking the meat evaporates water and burns off some of the good vitamins that make raw such a good feed. (and cooking makes bones dangerous).

I started feeding my puppy raw right after bringing her home (6.5 weeks old)...just be forewarned that puppies who eat tend to grow slower than puppies fed kibble/commercial dog food.
