The word BARF is an acronym for Biologically Appropriate Raw Food.
We want our young canines to grow and
develop every part of their body to the peak of their genetic perfection. We
want breeding animals to produce supremely healthy off spring that become long
lived, healthy, well adjusted and trouble free adults. We want active dogs to
perform to the maximum of their genetic potential. We want our sick dogs to
become well, and our aged dogs to ‘become young again.’ We want to see BRILLIANT
health! This means our dogs should be happy, active, bright, alert and free of
problems. And we want them to stay that way for all their very long lives. This means the RAW diet, is exactly what we should be feeding our Dogs. For any machine to work properly it must be supplied with the manufacturers recommended fuel, lubricants, and spare parts. Anything less will cause that machine to malfunction. Our dogs bodies work on the same principle. A biologically appropriate raw diet is the only diet that will maximize health and longevity.
Most dog foods contain a long list of additives, preservatives and grain products. RAW DIET looks only to the freshest whole raw food sources rich in vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids from human grade ingredients. Do you believe that pouring dry kibble into a bowl day after day is the best way to feed your dog? Grains are not biologically appropriate for our K9 friends. The ingestion of grain and other starchy foods
contribute to most,
if not all, of the degenerative diseases. Domestic dogs should be getting their carbohydrate's & protein in a similar manner to their wild ancestors.
That means fresh, raw meat & vegetables and
fruit. We feed only fresh meat & vegetables along with some essential vitamins,
shepherds coats are shinny, teeth are white like pearls " no denta bones
here!!!" and the vets in our area say that our dogs are the healthiest they have
seen. The energy level of our German Shepherds is awesome, even our oldest
shepherd has the energy of a young pup. I can't recommend switching to a raw
diet enough, if you ask your vet about feeding Raw diet, 9 times
out of ten they will strongly urge you not to, but then turn around and look
what is on their shelves and ask yourself if their answer was a un-bias
one based on the facts!. Switching to a Raw diet will be the best thing you ever
do for your K9.
