MercyMe loves BARF and he has more energy and alertness. He is thriving on your product ! It is helping his yeast problem and the feet chewing has all but stopped.
Your customer service is truly customer service. When I call with a question or concern I am treated professionally and feel you have the best interest of my dog at heart. You are the best!!

I love, love, LOVE my holistic vet and he is the one who gave me the initial information about BARFworld's product. Because I trust him implicitly, I was more than willing to give it a go. My dogs haven't been on it long enough (only about a week) to notice a substantial difference yet but the product looks and smells and whole lot more appealing than even the best quality kibble, is less trouble than any canned food, and the customer service has been unparallelled.

I just want to say THANK YOU to Al, Evan and Rob at BARF World. I have two dogs. Koda is my fun loving and spunky 10 year old Jack Russell Terrier who loves to be outdoors. Bandit is my 8 1/2 year old Tri-Colored Rat Terrier who loves to cuddle, give kisses and talk to you as he is getting his rub down. Bandit was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer in June 2014. Our world changed that day...each day has now been a journey to help Bandit overcome and beat cancer. One stop on our journey was a diet change. I was very skeptical and concerned about feeding raw. I wanted to make sure this change was good for both dogs. Al, Evan and Rob have been very informative, helpful and patient with me on every phone call as I sought answers to every question, doubt and concern that I have had along this journey. I am pleased to say that Koda and Bandit love the BARF food and eagerly await each and every feeding. We are very pleased with the overall health changes and the results this food change journey has given to both Koda and Bandit. This is one stop on our journey that is helping Bandit overcome and beat cancer. THANK YOU BARF WORLD!!!

I can see Winnie has more energy when I take him out to run after being on the Barf diet. The probiotics I have added to his patties keep him from wanting to eat grass between sprints.(He likes to chase squirrels)

Since Vinnie has been on the Barf diet he has been so satisfied & very excited to eat at every meal time. Vinnie always eagerly licks his bowl clean. At 12 years of age his energy level is off the charts & his bowel movements are much more solid & regular. In the past with his kibble diet Vinnie would at times vomit & have runny stools. We've seen none of that with the Barf raw diet. Due to his dental issues & not having many teeth the Barf diet has been perfect for making Vinnie's meals easier to consume. We are very pleased with Vinnie's new diet & all the professional guidance we have received from the Barf World family. Thank You to all!!!

Magoo is 9 years old, and his mom, Kayla, is a 14 year old Golder Retriever. Both love the barf diet. Magoo has allergies and does better on raw food. Kayla has worn down most of her teeth so the barf patties are perfect for her, and her appetite has improved on this diet. We also feed it to Johhny who is a 5yr old mastiff mix and Steele a 7 month old weimeranar mix. Both are strays that came to us. They love the diet and their coats look awesome!

Taika is my Finnish Spitz who has been on BARF all her life. It has just been easy. Her digestion is great, her weight is great, her energy is up, up, up always! It's so easy to prepare- I'm just delighted on all accounts. Her coat is glossy, which is due to proper nutrition. She has a good immune system. Eating correctly certainly bolsters one's health and she is a walking example of canine health.

My goldendoodle, Daisy recently started dog agility training and she's just flying through those hoops. It's hard to keep up with her! She's been on the BARF diet since she was a puppy. After my last two golden retrievers were diagnosed with cancer, I decided I had to do something to protect Daisy from the same fate. So I started feeding her the BARF Diet. She is doing so well on it that I'm now in the process of converting my Bengal cat, Kitty to the BARF Diet as well.

Since I adopted Ginger, I was feeding her a high quality kibble, but soon noticed she was gaining weight and it wasn't due to lack of exercise. When I asked my vet they just told me to feed her less and walk more. That really didn't sound right or add up in my mind, so I did some further investigating and asking a friend/breeder, who told me "kibble can make dogs gain weight and it's not you." She then told me she feeds her dogs barf food and is extremely impressed with the results and the quality. After feeding Ginger the new barf diet, I'm extremely impressed. She has lost her "kibble rolls" and couldn't be more excited at meal times for her food! Thanks Barf World for producing such a high quality product :)

Dear Kellie and BARF team,
I have a wonderful rescue hound named Rudy. He has been the most amazing dog in every respect — with the exception of one thing. For quite some time, Rudy has suffered from a body odor problem. It didn’t matter how much he was bathed or with what sweet smelling shampoo, Rudy would begin to stink within 24 hours of a bath.
At Kellie’s urging, I switched Rudy to your lamb and salmon oil BARF diet. We left 3 weeks ago on a vacation with Rudy and his new diet in tow. After being on the diet for about a week not only did Rudy’s body odor problem disappear completely, but his coat showed substantial improvement becoming softer and silkier then ever. His energy level has been amazing as well.
At first I was hesitant to try your product because I thought it would be "too expensive." I was wrong. The fact is the BARF diet is very affordable and worth the few extra pennies per serving we are paying over the "off the shelf" dog food we were using from the local grocery store.
Thank you Kellie for caring so much about Rudy and encouraging me to join the BARF team!
We are fans and very grateful for the product you supply.
Very Truly Yours,
aka "Rudy’s Mom"

"I´ve had Pierre, my Aussie, on the BARF diet since I adopted him as a puppy. He is now a little over a year old, and thriving on this food. He is happy, healthy and beautiful. It is wonderful to have his food delivered to my door every month. Not only that, the customer service is amazing.
BARF, Pierre and I love you.

Thank you for providing such a great product (raw is the only way to go) and taking interest in Prince. He has food sensitivities to most grains and some meats so feeding him has been very challenging.
From the minute I spoke with Al, I was amazed by the caring customer service. He has checked in to see how the food was delivered and tolerated.
He has also given sound advice on how to improve Prince's health.
We are so happy we found your company and hope to have a long relationship.
Also, thank you for the great gifts we received. We appreciate them very much.

Wendy is a 5 Mo old Dobie. She had a urinary tract problem of very frequent urinations. I changed her diet and gave vet perscribed antibiotics for 2 weeks and now she seems to be normal. She also gained 9 lbs in 1 month. I plan to continue the diet. Patti

In 1994 I had 2 GSD's with various & serious health issues. No conventional treatment seemed to work for them; in fact, their health continued to get worse. While in a pet store one day, I was browsing the book section & read about the benefits of a raw natural diet. I didn't know anyone else who fed BARF at the time & my vets wouldn't recommend it, but I figured that my dogs were so sick, I had nothing to lose. So I bought the book, took the plunge ~ & although I admit I was a little scared, I started feeding bones & raw food.
I remember my dogs' first meal. They gobbled it down, their eyes rolled back in their head with joy & their expression seemed to say, "Mom, what took you so long?!?" Almost immediately their health began to improve, & within a couple of months their health problems just gradually seemed to slip away.
At that time, my dogs needed various supplements. I used to buy these at the health food store & spent time wrapping each pill in Velveeta cheese to make it palatable, but this was very time-consuming. Years later, I came across the BARF website & learned about their powders. I switched to the E-Barf Plus & the Alaskan Wild Salmon Oil & life has been beautiful & so much simpler ever since. My dog loves the BARF supplements which I simply sprinkle/stir into his food. Right now my only dogchild is Rousseau, age 5 1/2, a red miniature poodle who is thriving on his raw natural diet. Hooray for BARF food & supplements!

"The BARF diet has cured my dog Dexter of severe diarrhea. When Dexter's on the raw diet his stools come out good but when he's on kibble it comes out loose. Both dogs have so much more energy and never looked better. BARF World has educated me very well on this diet and I'm much happier being able to give my dogs a healthier lifestyle. "

Noah could not stop itching, and his attitude was very bad. He was in training constantly, give him an inch and he would take a mile. The only thing that stopped his itch was prednisone and antibiotics for sores.
This went on for over 2 years and then I found BARF! The more I read the more I did for this dog. Raw everything! Noah did end the cycle and end the meds. His attitude changed and he is the sweetest dog who loves everyone. My friends come over to see him first.

Being a Raw Vegan myself and understanding how to obtain optimal health it is VERY refreshing to have a shipment sent right to my front door every two weeks versus making the food myself. Not to mention he is thriving on this food more than ever. At 8-years old, he acts like he did when he was a puppy...WE LOVE BARF WORLD and are both forever grateful !!!!!! As you can see, among all the different ages, he still looks just as youthful as the years before, except a little more gray. He has always been on a high raw diet, but now he is thriving more than ever at the age of eight since discovering BARF WORLD. You are all amazing from the food to the customer service.

From Tank: This is ALL ABOUT LOVING MY BARF Diet!!!!!

I began using BARF in 2010 and have been extremly happy with the product and the excellent service. I had been introduced to the idea of a "raw" diet for my dogs and researched it extensively. BARF proved to be the easiest, most practical and more importatnly, my dogs love it and are very healthy!

I cant thank you all enough for saving Charlie's life! Our doggie just turned 7 and he became so ill that he almost didn't recover. End of July 2013 he was shaky and couldn't hold his head up or go near water or food. We rushed him to the hospital and discovered he was diabetic with his glucose at 800. The vet said we have 2 choices, to either administer insulin every 12 hours for the rest of his life or have him put down (that was never going to happen). So he stayed in ICU for 7 days and finally came home. Two weeks ago, my mom called and said Charlie is vomiting uncontrollably and has diarrhea also, so I rushed him to his vet and after blood work he was diagnosed with pancreatitis. The range is to be under 200 and his was 839. The vet gave him tons of injections and sent him home with tons of anti-biotics and many other meds. A week later he started vomiting again and I rushed him back to his vet. Blood work was repeated and his pancreatitis range was now at 1000. The vet called me in with the saddest look on his face and asked what my plan was for Charlie. I began hysterically crying as I couldn't imagine our life without him. The vet said he will go home with way more anti-biotics and meds than before and IV's 2 x a day. He also thought it may be pancreatic cancer. I left there and called Evan at Barf world and all I can say is that call saved our Charlie's life. He got Robert on the phone right away, who faxed me a protocol for pancreatitis. Charlie's was one of the worst cases. Robert informed me as to how serious this was and how much I needed to follow this protocol. I was drained from daily vet visits and administering meds/Iv's. I wasn't able to sleep or eat all week from worry. Needless to say I was a basket case because Charlie was to repeat labs the following week and I knew it was going be the worst news ever. So I took him in on Monday and went back on Tuesday without him to be read the results. The vet called me in as the staff looked on holding their breath. I had called them numerous times a day and they really felt my pain but couldn't help Charlie. When I walked in the room, the vet had a look of confusion on his face. I just knew in my heart that the end for Charlie had come. But it wasn't the end for him!!! The vet said his pancreatic range was 54. I jumped up and down, screaming with joy! Even his staff rejoiced! I told them all that the folks at Barf World saved his life by sending me crucial info. Had I followed this protocol 2 weeks ago, Charlie wouldn't have suffered the way he did and I wouldn't be out thousands of dollars in vet bills. All I can say is these people at Barf world know more than any vet and I will only feed the raw diet to our little guy for the rest of his life.
Barf world, I cant thank you enough for the phone calls and concern. Ive never seen compassion like this before.

I had a most charming conversation with Chris, one of the phone reps for BARF World. While I was bending Chris's ear about how much my dog adores your food, he asked if he could send me an e-mail and have me send in a picture of my dog, that possibly it could be posted on the web site. I have not received the e-mail yet, so I thought I would just send in the two best pictures I have of my dog.
His name is "Grant", he is almost 11 months old. He is a living, breathing testimony to this wonderful food. Thanks very much and keep up the great work!!

I am writing to tell you how grateful that I am to have read, "The BARF Diet" years ago. Being an animal lover and health nut, it just went along with what I believe. Animals are no different than we are with needing natural, back to nature, nutrition. Processed dog food is just like our junk or fast food. The nutrition has been cooked out of it. Animals should not be getting our diseases like cancer, diabetes or heart disease.
I have a black lab whose name is Sadie. She is 6-years-old and still looks and acts like a puppy. She goes to work with me every day at...people stop by to see Sadie and bring friends back to see her. They cannot believe her shiny coat and pearly white teeth.

My weimaraner, Kali (1.5 years) has been on the BARF Diet since she was 5 months old. She is a happy, healthy and well balanced dog because of it. Her coat is silky and soft, her teeth and gums look great, she rarely passes loud stinky gas and her stool - yes her poop - is wonderful too. When she was 4 months old, we became worried because she pooped a lot and it did not smell well.
Many people are surprised when we tell them about her food and some dog owners can't believe it. That's what happens when we become brain washed by the pet food industry.
Anyway, I have forwarded your website to all my friends with animal and have made one convert. Thanks for the video on salmonella. I had that conversation the other night and was telling my friends, who I am trying to convert, that there is no reason to worry.
I rescued a red doberman (Dharma) and have been feeding her barf diet and using the E-BARF Plus supplement. Her coat is so soft and it shines, her eyes are bright and she's full on energy. I have looked at other supplements that friends have told me about but none come close to what BARF offers. People always stop me and comment on her beautiful coat.

I'm thrilled to know that my pups are getting the nutrition that they require in their diet from BARF. As keepers of these amazing animals, I know that they must be fed a diet similar to what they would find in the wild. That certainly isn't grains, corn, potatoes, bread and above all sugar and starch. It's raw, uncooked meats with the organs and bone, some vegetables, along with fruits (what would naturally fall off the tree for the canine to find). It just amazes me how we neglect their diets and rely on the dog food industry to make sure they include everything our dogs need in that dry piece of kibble. That's like relying on McDonalds to include all the nutrition for our kids in the Happy Meal. It doesn't happen that way. So, I truly appreciate all the hard work and lots of research the people at BARF have done to make sure that their product is the best that it can be. I have such a good feeling when I feed Courtney and Sophia every day that they are receiving what their bodies require to maintain good health. My God Bless Your Company Over And Over!! You are helping take care of one of God's most amazing creations, The Wonderful Canine! Sincerely, Jennifer Hill

Milly's been on the BARF Diet from the beginning and she's doing fine. We never go to the vet unless its for a shot. I'm so pleased with that. Both of my daughters have pets on BARF too.
Also, her coat is gorgeous and we have no shedding. She is such a doll. Everywhere we go people just can't get over her cute, little face.

Axel loves feeding time. He gets so excited when I head for the fridge. Everything BARF said has been right on. Beautiful coat, clean teeth and breath, compact stools and great checkups at the vets. Thank you for getting us off on a great start. Great customer service, too.

Isis was always on a raw diet but something happened with a shipment of food not showing up, forcing me to buy more people food, which leads to tons of money! i went searching online for other options and my heart literally went to my stomach when I found BARF world! You are not only cheaper, but quicker and even more convienant. Isis cant wait for meals and loves your food! I'm thrilled that your company cares so much about the health of my dog - it makes such difference!

My sweet baby, Desoto, a 6- year old puggle, has started having energy level issues. This was a dog that used to run 5-6 times a week. I used to roller blade and bike with him since he was a puppy. I have done some research about the dog food that we can get in the pet stores and realized what kind of garbage is put in it and how it can harm the dog. I have tried to switch Desoto to a Vegetarian dry food, hoping that it would have less toxic ingredients. After about 2 years on the Vegetarian food, he started to loose energy, sleep more and was not interested in walking at all. He was definitely missing something in his diet. I have learned about Barfworld through Justin and Kate at the Extreme Health Radio and the success they had with their dog, Maggie, eating Barfworld formula. I am so thankful for them because I would never know it existed. I am so thankful that some company today cares enough for the animals and is doing something about it. It is the highest quality dog food on the market right now. That is all I want to do for Desoto, the best. He loves his patties and liver treats everyday. I noticed his coat is more shiny and his teeth look better too. Al at Barfworld is doing an incredible job, the customer service with this company is through the roof. What was the last time someone called you each month after you have purchased something to check up on you? It was the first for me. I am so grateful and I hope that Barfworld will continue to grow and get more customers.

After Kirby was neutered, he began to gain a lot of weight and even developed a limp. The vet suggested that Kirby had a thyroid problem and wanted him on prescription Science Diet food. I didn't want to feed Science Diet because I knew that it was not a good diet. I also had previously lost a cat to that food. So, I did a little research online and found BARF. It made sense so I decided to try it. Kirby is losing that extra weight, is much healthier, energetic and even stopped shedding as much.

We have a 4-year-old German Shepherd and a 17-year-old cock-a-poo and both of these healthy canines have either grown up on the BARF raw diet or spent much of their golden years benefiting from this excellent food.
We chose BARF on the recommendation of a trusted friend, but time and experience has proven that the advice was solid. Our animals are healthy and happy in no small part due to the excellent nutrition they receive from this great food.
We know how important a good diet is to the life and happiness of our animals and we give them the best we can to insure that they will be a part of our family a long time. The only other things we add are love, exercise and excellent veterinary care when needed.
Thank you BARF for providing excellent nutrition for Heidi and Dawg.

Here's a picture of my buddy (Rocket); he's a Norfolk terrier, 3-1/2 years old and loving life! My Rocketman has lost all of his extra "pudge." All his itching is gone and he goes nuts when I take it out of the refrigerator. I'm feeding all BARF, morning and evening. He switched pretty seamlessly to the raw food. The vet is very pleased with how he looks.

I heard about raw food through my chiropractor, who had her older dog on the raw diet. She said that he improved so much on it. I have had problems with all of my previous Yorkies. They all had health issues. I knew I had to do something and got them off the commercial food. BARF came up when I researched it. I ordered the books and got the diet. Truthfully they are doing great now.

I have so appreciated all your help and support while I got Angel adjusted to the BARF diet, I of course prefer to call it ARF:-) I could not be happier with the results of this food! Not only does she love it she is feeling and looking so much better!
She was on a prescription food for bladder stones, she had gotten very think and I was very worried about her. She had no energy, slept all day and whined as she slept. I could feel her spine and ribs, she literally had no fat on her! She is 15 yrs old, I honestly felt I was watching her die in front of my eyes.
Switching her to the ARF diet was tricky, due to her age and my doing it cold turkey she developed a very bad case of diarreah, I can not tell you how comforted I felt with your hours of conversations on what to do for her. So here it is 3 mos, she LOVES her food, not only does she love it, she is looking and feeling so good! She is putting on weight, I can no longer see her ribs and spine!!! She does not whine as she sleeps or moves and she no longer sleeps her day away! She is blind but hyper and happy!!! Thank you so very much for everything and for helping my Angel Precious enjoy her life, food and more yrs here with us!
I am attaching a before pic of her laying down, you can tell how her belly was so bloated, and an after picture. You can see how she has put on a healthy weight. She needs to be groomed by a professional for momma doesn't do such a great job! But you can see how good she looks despite her momma's grooming!
Last thing to note is that I have done this for the health of my furchild despite her doctors not supporting a raw diet, I am so glad I went with my gut and not a doctors opinion!
Thank you again!

Here are a few pics of my pups, Toby and Pepper. They are healthy and happy on a raw food diet with the BARF Plus supplement.
As I told you on the phone, Pepper was a stray dog that we adopted. When she arrived at about 9 months of age, her coat was dry and coarse. After about 2 weeks on the raw diet we really saw her coat start to change. Now, at 13 months, her coat is so soft and shiny...what a difference.
Toby was weaned on a raw diet and I've continued it. At 18 months, he shows absolutely no signs of allergies common with other golden retrievers.
I'll never go back to kibble!!

Comet's coat was dull and he was very thin when we became his foster family a few months ago. He is a very energetic one year old English Springer Spaniel. When we changed him over from kibble to the BARF diet his coat became glossy and soft. Over the last month, by adjusting the amount of food we feed him to meet his energy requirements, he gradually is gaining to a healthier weight.

Al—I need to tell Barfworld what a lifesaver their food has been for my 12-1/2 yr old yorkie. Since being on this food for 9 months, his blood work has improved to almost perfect levels. His hair has become thicker and softer. I do not even have him on flea meds because fleas don’t bite healthy dogs, and I attribute his health to Barfworld. We just rescued a little 5 lb maltese a couple days ago, and the rescue place sent home some of her "food" for us—JUNK food. I threw it in the garbage immediately, and served her some of the Barf food, and she LOVED IT! No diarrhea, no vomiting, no nothing. She’s not even 3, but she took to this food like no one’s business. She was sneezing and itching when we got her 3 days ago, and it has totally disappeared. Thank you Barfworld—it’s pricey, but well worth the money if you truly love your furry children!

Buddy and Copper have slimmed down; Buddy has not had any seizures in the month since we started and everyone's breath is much better.
Candy's kidney disease symptoms have improved (she has more energy, and the loss of appetite, diarrhea, and vomiting - GONE!) despite her internal specialist advising against this choice I've made in changing from "kidney health" (low protein) dry and canned foods.
She's 13 years old, my boys 10 and 9 years, I will be letting them live out their remaining years happily on BARF!!

Hi Lily our profile is not up to date so the reply is for Chaz, Hannah both grey's and T'Si senior mix about the size of a G. Shepard. All noses were turned up in refusal of the diet after using the sprinkles you provided, thank you, every one loves it. T'Si was experiencing low energy, failing hind quarters. We are 60 days in and her eyes are brighter and she is perkier. She moves around more often and with greater ease. Her coat somewhat improved. It's gratifying to see these changes. Chaz nearly 6 had "porked" up a little during the winter (80lb) and has lost the excess weight, now working to "maintain". Chaz is mostly white with brindle and the white is picking up a very nice sheen. Little Hannah 3, 54lb's, is very difficult to put weight on and had nothing to spare but has lost weight on 3 patties a day. I have purchased a bag of SoJo for my emergency supplies but have begun adding some of it to the patties. It is eaten with the same gusto. Hoping this will put a couple of pounds on Hannah. By the way your recommendation of Sojo is well founded. The incorrect product was shipped and the error was promptly corrected at no inconvenience to me in returning the other product. I dehydrate quite a bit of food and this product looks to be of good quality. Thank you for a product that is easy to use and I believe is the most natural/nutritious for them, hopefully the vet will be needed for injuries not health related events. Think it was read on your site that zoos do not feed kibble, point well taken. There is a wonderful wild animal rescue here in Co. and they get a wonderful raw diet.

I don't have a Before and After testimony, for comparison, to talk about health improvements I have seen in my dogs. Why? Because I have always fed my dogs the BARF diet, even before the BARF World company was born. I studied all of Dr. Billinghurst's books in order to comprise a homemade BARF diet based on his recommendations. Many of my friends and family were in awe that I would put the time in to study the raw approach to preparing a homemade diet...besides, "How could I possibly feed raw meat, and especially bones to my dogs!" Wasn't I afraid of bacteria and a dog should NEVER eat BONES!" Well...needless to say, I just loved those comments since it became grounds for a truly captive audience and a opportunity to educate and teach waht I have learned by studying Dr. Billinghurst's evolutionary diet, and even a bigger opportunity to talk about kibble! My favorite has always been the cashier at the grocery store when I am checking out my lbs. of various fresh veggies to grind, fresh chickens, etc. and I hear the comment: "WOW, your family eats healthy!" The look on their face when I say it's for my dogs is priceless!
Well, I must say, it was a happy day for me when Dr. Billinghurst announced he was going to formulate his own raw diet into ready-made prepackaged Frozen Diet and so birthed the company, BARF World. Needless to say, I was on board and I wouldn't doubt if I was one of their 1st customers...and I have been a customer ever since.
I have since grown from a family of one Australian Labradoodle puppy, who is 7-years-old now, to a family of 5 Labradoodles. I am a breeder now and my 5 dogs live with me as my beloved pets too. All my dogs have been raised on BARF from the time they were puppies and my litters are raised on BARF. My next litter will be 3rd generation BARF-fed!
As I mentioned when I first started to write, I didn't have a Before/After testimony, but the fact that all my dogs rarely, if ever, need to see a vet for a sick visit, no fleas, no ear infections (and the labradoodle can be notorious for ear infections due to floppy ears and narrow hairy ear canals) no skin conditions, no bad breath...just beautiful healthy dogs with shiny coats and energy...and not to mention, smaller poops with lower odor (a breeder's dream come true!). I can attest to the fact that BARF World's products are truly how our dogs are designed to eat. I am so happy when I hear a new puppy owner's vet comment on how exceptionally healthy their pup looks! Healthy BARF-fed mommy dogs and daddy dogs make healthy puppies! And then there is those even luckier BARF-fed puppies that I raised, whose new owners continue to feed the BARF World diet!
BARF World, we love you and thank you!

My 5 yr. old Golden, Chance - he does ok on dry food, but my conscience made me make the financial commitment finally. Muggs, my English Bulldog, that has been on your diet for probably about 3 1/2 years was having daily seizures for which the vet could find no cause. That is when I dug into the internet and did a bit of research and found you guys. The seizures stopped - she has had maybe 1 per year since I switched her diet - and she is trim and very healthy. I knew the diet would also be great for Chance, but couldn't work out the cost till now. I'm excited for him, I love your offerings. Thanks.

Mars is glad that we have returned to the BARF Diet. We tried a cheaper brand but found they were indeed "cheaper" in every respect. It did not have the variety of the BARF Diet products and also did not have the same digestibility of BARF. Mars is quite happy to have his old stand-by back in his dish.

Thanks to the BARF Diet, Tank has a smile on his face and more "pep" in his step these days!

We're very satisfied. The food is wonderful and it ships well. It worked out well with Naomi. The change with her stool happened quicker than we thought. We loved the fact that it comes in patties that are easy to feed and the dog loved it! I would recommend BARF to anyone.

Our Mastiffs did great and loved the food. No complaints. The experience gave us perspective on what we need to do for our dogs for years to come. Your product is great.

Curly is a five month old American Eskimo puppy and he loves the barf diet. He can hardly contain his joy when I am preparing his food and this makes me feel good about giving it to him. He didn't act that way about the dry dog food:-)

Shorty loves the Etta Says treats so much, that I was actually able to use them in order to train him how to sit. I am so impressed.

Everything arrives properly when I receive my orders. My expectations are always met. Our Bichons love BARF, they always lick their bowls clean!!!

A few years ago we decided to start eating organically, reading every label to make sure we were eating the right things and not all the junk. Of course this meant that we were also trying to feed our dog the right food. We had searched for a while before we found a food that we thought was a good dog food, we also fed him scraps because we felt that was better than dog food.
I was watching a program Natural Companions and they talked about BARF. I am so very glad that I found this. Now we have found a dog food I like giving to my dog. Our dog loves these patties. He can hear me get them out of the refrigerator and he comes on the run. He loves them so much he even licks the plate clean. His coat glistens and you can almost see your reflection.
Thank you for a great dog food.

I started feeding the BARF diet because of the dogs dying from the kibble recalls of 2007. It was then that I decided to feed T-Bone the BARF Diet exclusively. I love BARF and the boys love it too!

During the first six weeks I had Cissie, I had a hard time getting her to eat. Gene (previous owner) also had had a hard time getting Cissie to eat. My daughter, who is into traditional foods, told me about this dog food she had seen online that was biologically appropriate raw food for dogs. In fact that was it's named - BARF. We laughed at the name, but we were happy to try it. That was October of 2011. Cissie loved it. In fact, I had to start giving her breakfast before her morning walk. We'd be a couple blocks away from home, and she'd just take off for home wanting her breakfast, running across streets before I could catch her. She loves BARF as you can see in the video. I'm so happy to say that Cissie is now one happy, healthy dog! Thank you, BARF World for your part in that!

You guys have the best customer service I have ever received from any company EVER. You guys are just awesome. What I appreciate is that you always follow up, always have a cheerful attitude, are happy, and always call the dogs by their name because our dogs are family. It's just a really caring attitude. Whatever I needed, you did it. You guys are awesome to work with. I've just never experienced such great customer service and it wasn't just one person, everybody was helpful.

My dog Kylee has been on the BARF diet for over a month now. She has lost weight and seems more satisfied. She even reminds us when it's dinner time by barking at us. When I am preparing her meals she comes running in and sits right next to me sniffing the air with anticipation. She eats every bit and begs less for additional treats. In fact she now sometimes turns down grain based treats. I believe by her behavior that she is more content and happy. It just makes good sense to feed raw. Since dogs ate raw meat for thousands of years, and we tried to switch them to grains which are not their natural diet.

We began using BARF for our older dog Nicholas, who was plagued with allergies and digestive problems. He could clear a room with his gas. But after the BARF diet, he never had an episode of gas or diarrhea again. He thrived and so did all our pups.

I recently ordered the BARF diet for my 4.5 lb Chihuahua "Hank". He was suffering from Colitis, Itchy Skin and had to have his anal glands expressed frequently. He has been on the diet now for a couple of months and I can't believe the difference! He has more energy, his eyes are brighter and his coat feels as soft as a bunny! Thank you so much for creating this diet and thanks to Evan for all of his help in selecting the correct amount and type of food! I have recommended this diet to all of my friends! Julieann

Lucky was a digestive nightmare when I adopted him. He would only eat 1 meal a day. I tried several different foods and even cooked for him. Once I started BARF he had more energy, no lethargic behavior and is excited to eat. Thank you Barf World.

I'm sure my dachshund, Bismarck, would try to eat the whole bag of BARF Diet if I gave him the opportunity to. He has been on it for most of his life. Coat looks great, teeth are good, no allergies. He's happy and frisky. Even after a long run he still has more energy than me!
- Chris Haag
Max, my poodle, did not like his kibble diet at all. We had heard from our breeder that the dry food is not good for them at all- and he HATED it. I tried adding wet food to get him to eat it but he would still take it out and not eat it. On BARF there is no gas, he eats everything and HE LOVES IT. Defrost it in the fridge, feed it and he licks the bowl clean. It does cost a little more money but he is doing well and loves it- its worth it.

North Hills Roslyn,
I know what artificial colors and flavors do to humans and what allergic reactions to these types of things can do to people so I began to think, "Why do we think dogs area immune to that stuff"? I started to look around at what was available at the stores for our pets and was not satisfied. I tried so many different diets before I decided to start making my pets their food myself. After nine months of making my pets food, I was exhausted. They were doing well - but I wasn't! So I decided to try the BARF Diet. I'm so glad that I did! It is so much easier and my dogs are all doing so well. Their stools are firm and they are very healthy.

We've been using E-BARF Plus for 4 years now. I've noticed that if he doesn't use the supplements his problems come back. He is a yellow lab with allergies and a sensitive tummy. Our holistic vet recommended E-BARF Plus and it worked. And I just wanted to say, anytime I call (BARF World), everyone is always so nice and gives great customer service. They are always inquisitive about how our pets are doing. Its amazing the level of concern there is about our pets- I appreciate that very much!

When we rescued Greta, she was a year old and 25 lbs under weight. She was in terrible shape. Even the vet that had a wall of kibble diet in her office, advised me not to feed raw. When I took her back to the vet after being on raw the vet said, "My God, what have you done to this dog!" I gloatingly told her it was the raw diet. The diet really turned Greta around. She switched to it immediately, with no problems at all.
- Jere Murray
I really don't know what to share, Beauty is a handful, she has a lot of energy. She has 4 patties each day. Seems to know exactly when its mealtime! I feel that she likes her food.Her coat is great.Her teeth are beautiful. She seems to be settling down but no where near soon enough.

You guys are good. It always comes out automatically on time and its good food. It's great when you don't have to think about it- time is money!

We are a Hall of Fame Excellent Kennel #27 with the Australian Shepard Club of America (ASCA) and AKC. We raise are dogs to meet the ASCA Breed Standard and compete in Conformation, Stock Trials, Agility, Obedience and Rally. Are dogs are first and foremost are pets, but they are true athletes and while I can't afford to feed eight 50lb dogs your BARF formulas, I do add raw chicken necks to their meals of Super Premium kibble twice a day. The girls that will be bred go on your formula once their bred and stay on it until two months post weaning of puppies. Of course the puppies are weaned on to it, once we start weaning them off of their four legged mom. If your food was not so expensive believe me when I say the entire kennel would be 100% BARF fed, its just not feasible with the costs of showing & trialing dogs. I only breed a litter when I need something for myself, therefor its not a money making proposition for me. I will say I'm TOTALLY happy with your foods!

With the AutoBARF Gold automatic shipping program, my Golden retriever Sam's food comes exactly when it needs to come. The BARF Diet patties are so easy to feed and he absolutely loves it!

I am a believer in raw food for my dogs. I try to feed my family only the healthiest, most natural foods possible, so why would I want any less for my dogs. I am so committed to feeding my dogs raw foods that initially, I was making it myself. The process is very labor intensive. I eventually began searching for a raw dog food that would meet my requirements of being domestic and truly raw. This is when I found BARF. Our retrievers look great, and no one has allergy issues. Their coats are beautiful, and nobody can believe that Buster, our 14 year old continues to look so good.

Our family is hooked on BARF. The reason for us being hooked is quite clear- our previous dogs were street dogs and we spent thousands of dollars having growths removed from them. We took them to the holistic vet and told him about our experience with the cost of growth removals and he told us "feed BARF, there will be no growths." We really are very much impressed by the diet and the health of our new dog, Wizard. He is now 3 years old and has never had any abnormality. He's just been marvelous and we attribute that to the diet. We also supplement with the EBARF+ Probiotic Powder and the Alaskan Naturals Salmon Oil. Wizard was great with BARF alone but I have noticed an even greater sheen while on the supplements. The combination of the diet and supplements really go well together. Everyone at BARF World treats us so well, they really take good care of us.

Cricket usually just lounges around with no energy at all. In the first few days she had more get-up-and-go. She loves it. I've been very impressed with it.

"Everything I read about raw diets makes sense and it's a great way to eat. Bailey's been on the BARF diet his whole life. The breeder we got him from fed him a raw diet as a puppy and while I wanted to continue this for him, I didn't want to hassle with doing it all myself. BARF makes it easy so I'm happy. I do also give him some chicken wings and he does well on those but he loves your food! And the evidence of how good the food is is how well it is digested. I mean his poops are almost nothing. Plus everyone compliments him on his soft coat - it's shiny and his nails grow like crazy. He is a healthy boy because of a good diet."
- Mark & Karen Cleary
I originally started on the BARF diet for my labs. I didn't like the foods you could get in stores because of all the garbage in them. I was dissatisfied with the food that they were getting so I started researching a better diet for them. They did well on it and now both of my poodles are on it too! Their energy and the life quality of my dogs has been the thing I love the most about the diet.

I have to say, I was really impressed with how BARF was packaged. Oh man! It arrived frozen solid- it was great. I've ordered raw food from other companies- one charges you an arm and a leg for the shipment, which is only Styrofoam lined box, not as nice as yours, with gel packs. BARF's was impressive. Since I've been mail ordering raw food, I thought I knew what to expect but WOW. It was really nice, I am just happy as a clam.

We went through a month of trial and error with other foods trying to stop the diarrhea. Nothing would work for Arrow until we started him on the BARF Diet. After the first day, he was perfect. It was really incredible. I can't say enough about this food- we love it!
Our other dog Phoebe is a 12 year old bichon and she is in such excellent health due to the diet. I wouldn't ever do anything different for my dogs.
By the way, Stryder and Phoebe love the Wild Alaskan Salmon oil, as they do their BARF diet.

I rescued Fritz last year. A good friend who feeds raw, recommended the BARF World site. She said that feeding raw really made a difference in the rescue dogs that were coming in. I could definitely tell the difference in his stool. It was much more condensed. I live in a condominium and have to pick up after him when we walk all the time. It was a good difference to see.

Diego is doing great on the BARF Diet. Ever since I've transitioned him to BARF, a lot of his skin issues have gone away, and a lot of his weight issues have improved, it's been amazing! It's great since the dalmatian breed is prone to allergies and urinary crystals.

Since I got Jackson 9 years ago, I have been feeding him raw food. I got into reading books and making the diets on my own but found it very difficult to make sure he was getting the variety and all the components. The BARF patties have all the bone and what they need in them. This is so beneficial to them. They just don't have any health issues at all. They're very health dogs. I would highly recommend it.
- Jennifer Loomis
Cleo loves her food. She gets fed in the morning and in the evening. If it gets past the certain time and she hasn't been feed yet she will let me know. She is in the great shape and she has lost 3lbs. She has so much more energy now and is a happy little thing!
