Go back 20 years, even 10 years & you’ll find that the only practical way to feed your dog was through a dry kibble. However as I’m sure most dog owners know, that is no longer the case! There are a huge variety of ways to feed your dog now, one of the most prominent methods now is through a BARF diet.
Okay, don’t get put off by the name, we know it sounds disgusting too. Now before you start getting nasty thoughts in your head, it’s an acronym. Thankfully it stands for: Biologically Appropriate Raw Food. You can say that if you prefer, it’s just a bit more of a mouthful.
Rising in popularity in the pet food market & for good reason. Raw food can take away the worries of what ingredients you are feeding your dog. Feeding a raw diet at first may seem daunting, but once you get into the routine it is almost just as easy as dry food. Purchased normally in frozen blocks, all you need to do is allow time for the product to defrost & feed as is! No need to cook or any additional work. Here are some things to look for when purchasing a raw diet:
- No Added Ingredients – The main selling point of raw food is that you’re getting exactly what is advertised. If you find any foods with any additional ingredients you weren’t expecting, it would be best to avoid.
- Bone Content – If you’re new to raw feeding, you might see bone content as something to avoid. This could not be further from the truth! Bone content found in raw food is essential to their diet to ensure they get the necessary nutrients needed.
