Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (BARF®)

With the New Year approaching, now is the perfect time to get your pet started on the BARF® Diet! Feeding raw is crucial to make sure you're meeting all of the nutritional requirements your pet needs. A nutritionally advantaged dog will have the energy, stamina, and ability to perform at a higher level than a “fast food” fed dog.

When I say “fast food”, I am referring to commercial kibble and canned food – “fast” and convenient for the owner, but not for the animal. In my 40+ years in the field of animal nutrition, I’ve found that although feeding a convenient commercial cooked food is feasible for the pet parent but not beneficial to the health of the animal. In fact a dog that is fed this way will ultimately exhibit symptoms of digestive disorders, skin conditions, allergies, and this leads to degenerative disease.

The advice given to nutrition-minded humans is to eliminate processed foods from your diet – and the same advice holds true for pets. The philosophy we profess involves feeding a dog that is biologically appropriate for the species. That means feeding the animals what Mother Nature has designed them to eat.
