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.

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 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)

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

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 he 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 about BARF. Since switching to BARF Ginger has lost weight and is more healthy than ever!

Dear Kellie and BARF team,
I have a wonderful rescue hound named Rudy. He has been the most amazing dog in every respect â€” with the exception of one thing. For quite some time, Rudy has suffered from a body odor problem. It didnâ€™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 Kellieâ€™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 Rudyâ€™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.

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.

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. "

In preparation for our new puppy, Kenny, we started Ollie on Barf about a month before Kenny's arrival. We were concerned about Ollie's energy levels at 12 years old with the introduction of an energetic puppy. Ollie used to sleep often during the day. After 6 weeks of Barf, his energy level has increased and he is playing often with Kenny! In fact, sometimes Kenny is ready to be 'done' with their play but Ollie is still going strong!

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.

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!

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.

Meet Diego- Our 1 1/2 year old German Shepherd. He is the love of our life along with all his farm brothers and sisters! From a pup up my husband and I wanted to ensure we fed our boy the very best dog food, but we were a bit grossed out by the breeder suggestion of a raw diet, so we went with Honest Kitchen, a premium dehydrated food that is very highly rated for quality ingredients and top notch manufacturing standards. We fed Diego based on the manufacture's suggestions and even called the company a few times to get feeding tips for our boy. After Diego was approximately 4 months old he started getting repeat severe yeast infections in his ears and on his feet. His coat was dull and his ears were a painful mess. He was at the vet on a regular bases to try new ways to treat and prevent these reoccurrences. It was heartbreaking to watch, and extremely frustrating to figure out. We tried EVERYTHING recommended to us, and spent a FORTUNE on tests and supplements. We even switched meats from the Honest Kitchen selections based on suggestions of meat allergies- but nothing nothing nothing was working.
We finally called the breeder to ask for advice, and once again he advised us to try a raw diet. My husband and I did serious research and landed on BARF World as our top contender, but after all we went through, I wanted to call and talk to the company about their food and the issues we were having. I spend almost an hour on the line with Autumn, and was convinced I had a knowledgeable and compassionate dog lover on the line, but now....... we needed to see if this really worked. The idea of switching to raw just seemed way too easy after all we went through, but we wanted to try anything at that point.
We got our first bags of the raw food with ease and GREAT customer service, but it was not without trepidation we opened the first bag, fully expecting a bloody gross mess. Not only were these patties easy to manage (separated by freezer paper), they looked like frozen patties for humans that you see in the super market (Hmmm- so far I think we can do this!!)- now the true test... would Diego eat them??? I will be honest here in saying that at first he was not quite sure what we put in front of him, but we seasoned the patties up with the liver sprinkles and he never looked back-- and now I am sooooooooooo happy to report- he has never looked or felt better! When we started him on BARF, our poor boy was in the beginning stages of another horrible ear infection. Two weeks in to feeding him BARF, Diego's ears were clean as whistles and he was no longer chewing his feet. One full month into feeding BARF and his coat looked like black and red glass. We are now approximately 4 months in and have had zero infections of any kind. Diego is a working dog and training him was tough when he chronically did not feel well- but now we have made up time and he is at the head of his class--(hold on for a major mom brag moment : )-- he even got asked to star in a dog training video because he is so good looking! That would have NEVER HAPPENED before being on this food.
Net net... we are forever fans, of this amazing food, and the exceptional customer service of this caring company-- take a look at the way this food is sourced and manufactured - that is really really important!!!!! We are not buying any food from foreign countries that do not have proper human grade meat standards-- Many pets have died because of this!
So in conclusion-- OUR THANKS to Barf World for this amazing food, and our happy, healthy beautiful Diego sends his thanks to you also!!
Just look at our boy with those pretty pink ears sitting by his dinner (he loves loves loves the beef patties : )

We have been struggling to find a good solution to Daisy's allergies, and recently we made the choice to switch her back to a raw diet. It's a labor intensive feeding regimen for us, so we haven't been super excited about it. But then I found this company the other day who does a raw diet plan, and they offered a 60 day money back guarantee, so I figured, why not try them out! Daisy's food should arrive later this week, but this arrived yesterday. Such a sweet surprise! So far the customer service from BARF World has been impeccable, and this is just icing on the cake. Can't wait to get started on their food!

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.

When I first contacted you I was a new dog mommy. I had adopted this ten year old rescue and renamed him Buddy. He had health issues, including a major surgery and digestive problems. I was leery of trying raw food but after reading up on it I decided to give it a try. Am I glad I did. His digestion, mood and demeanor have all changed for the better. Every day as I move to give him his bowl he looks up and licks his lips, his eyes shining. He's my little old man with renewed energy and big dog attitude. Our little prince. Thank you.

Thanks so much for always taking such good care of my two special babies, Booh & Atticus.
As puppies, my breeder, who is a top breeder and shower of standard poodles, suggested that if I wanted the best health for my dogs, I should use Barfworld. Both of my guys have been raised from day one with only your great diet. They are healthy and strong and love to play at the lake and run all day. I never feed them anything else. If we travel, I find a way to take their food with me.
I also wanted to say a special thank you to all of the personal care you all give. I love your personal notes and hands-on care and attention. After seven plus years as a devoted customer, Fedex messed up the delivery this week. All I had to do was to call you guys and Autumn fixed my order instantly and is following up to make sure everything is better than alright. You really run this business like the old days when businesses really cared. Thanks for the best food and the best customer support!!!

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.

My Bichon Angel had been on a dog food prescribed by the vet for bladder stone problems. She had almost died when she was just 5 years old from 2 bladder stones that were blocking her urethra. She had to have surgery. For the next 9 years she was on the prescription food recommended by the vet and she did not have bladder stones again. However, she did have re-occurring ear infections, bladder infections that were hard to heal, constipation, hot spots, itchy and inflamed skin, as well as a dislike for the food!
When Angel was 14 years old she was very ill, literally dying before my eyes. She did continue with the bladder infections but her blood work did not indicate why she was so ill. Her stomach was bloated and she was very sick. She had cataracts, was incontinent, and had horrible hot spots along with a continual itch and inflamed skin. what do you feed your dog? I honestly believe with all my heart the illnesses our pets are dying from are directly related to the commercial food we are feeding them!
I will have another dog again, not yet, it is way too soon. I miss my Angel Marie more than my heart even knew it would! But I can tell you the next time I get a dog, that dog will be on BARF/RAW from the START!!!!
Thank you to all at BARF World! They are so supportive and helpful with EVERYTHING I went through! From the beginning of putting Angel on raw to the very end when I had to work hard to get her to eat. They are GREAT! They really do care about you and your pet!
God Bless! CIAO!

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!!

Alâ€”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 donâ€™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 usâ€”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. Sheâ€™s not even 3, but she took to this food like no oneâ€™s business. She was sneezing and itching when we got her 3 days ago, and it has totally disappeared. Thank you Barfworldâ€”itâ€™s pricey, but well worth the money if you truly love your furry children!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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!

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.
- Sharon Adams
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.

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.

My 3 dogs, Tucker, Geronimo and Butch are all doing well on this food.

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.

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!
