Raw feeding or Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (B.A.R.F) is a practical and common sense way to feed your dog or cat for a long and healthy life. It is fundamentally based on the natural diet eaten in the wild for thousands of years. This consists of approximately 80% meat and bones and 20% fruits and vegetables.

The problem with most processed foods is the fact they are based on cooked grain. This makes them biologically inappropriate. At no time in a dog’s evolutionary history has its diet been based on cooked grains.

The commercial dog food recipe is largely based on the cost and availability of ingredients, combined with the minimum legal requirement of nutrients and vitamins, flavour enhancers to make it palatable, chemicals to prevent it from becoming rancid and allowing for a long shelf life and finally colouring dyes to make it attractive to the customer. These foods are legally complete but not biologically complete.

You would be amazed how many well known pet food brands contain ingredients such as animal byproducts, meat meal, poor quality grains, soy, and harmful preservatives such as BHA, BHT and eycotoxin.

How much to feed?

It is recommended to feed your dog or cat between 2% and 5 % of their body weight daily. This depends on the animals condition.

To maintain their current weight and condition you would feed between 2% and 3%, increasing for weight gain or decreasing the amount to lose weight. This is of course only a guideline as all animals can vary.
