I have gotten that from some vets. I usually respond with the "smile and nod" routine that I hear many use when given un-wanted parenting advice.
It also helps that we've been feeding raw for 5 years now, so I can't be doing that bad of a job and I've gained some confidence along the way. I don't engage in the debate or try to convince them that I'm right and they're wrong. After the long "this is why it's dangerous, I don't recommend it" the speech usually ends with "well your dogs look great so you must be doing something right".
