 Product Of The Month

Mookie's Must-Have Product Of The Month:

Lavender Noni Lotion

Fast, effective, and natural BARF-recommended relief for:
  • skin conditions including hot spots, open sores
  • infections and rashes.
  • Pain relief
  • Inflammation and pain from arthritis
  • Muscle aches and cramps
  • Many holistic veterinarians also prescribe noni lotion as a topical treatment for skin cancer and benign tumors.

Hear what others are saying about this fantastic remedy:

"I just wanted to let you know I talked to my sister yesterday and she was telling me that her little dog (Jake), a longhaired Maltese, had a really bad hot spot on its belly and they had been taking it to the vet. They have been trying all kinds of ointments and salves, trying to avoid steroids (prednisone), but Jake just wasn't healing, in fact he was just getting worse and his hot spot was to the point where it was pussy and bleeding...

Well, my brother-in-law found some of the noni dog lotion that I had left behind for my sister to try (she never did - she just set it on the shelf). He asked her what it was and she said, "Just some health type goop Steph left that she rubs on. I guess it couldn't hurt to try it."

Well, they used it and they had a vet appointment two days later to start Jake on injections...and lo and behold!!! The vet could not believe his eyes! At first, he was worried because Jake's white hair was a bit brown (from the lotion), but my sister explained why. He was amazed at how much better Jake's tummy was and in only two days! The hot spot was really healing up now and Jake is less anxious because he feels better."

-Stephanie Cook from Portland, OR


"It's not often that I take the time to write to a company about a product, but I am so excited about your noni lotion and what it has done for some of my horses and dogs...The terminology, 'scratches' is one that is a painful plague to most horse owners, but your Noni lotion actually cures it...

Now: to my dog story. Your noni lotion works on hot spots too. Again, we washed the area, clipped the hair short around the hot spot, and applied the noni lotion. In most cases, the hot spots were gone in two to three days. As most dog owners know, these spots are extremely painful and the noni lotion took that pain away. They also enjoyed licking the lotion, making it work from the inside out...

Anyway, we are excited to have found such a wonderful product and I can assure you every animal here is also. Thank you."

-Ann Beck from Texas

The Lavender Noni Lotion is only $14.97!

 Raw Knowledge


By Evan Price

As we turn the corner on Winter and stride into Spring, many things happen. The snow begins to melt (unless your name is Rob Mueller...the snow never seems to melt in Iola WI), the trees begin to bloom, and allergies begin to flare up. Right around this time of year, my nose starts leaking like a faucet, and I can rattle off 12 or 13 sneezes in a row.

This is a common issue for pets as well (allergies in general...not the faucet thing).

Many dogs affected by seasonal allergies will start exhibiting symptoms, such as itchy, flaky, irritated skin, sneezing, hot spots, hair loss, and excessive biting, licking, and scratching. Often, the problems become progressively worse, because as the skin becomes more irritated, the urge to lick and soothe the affected area increases. This is why people who's dogs are new to a raw diet will sometimes see a skin & coat problem get a little worse before it gets a lot better.

There are a few things that can be done to break the cycle. It goes without saying that a healthy, complete and balanced raw food diet is at the top of the list of solutions. Raw diets help to cleanse the body of toxins, which are expelled primarily through the skin. This is why people who are new to a raw diet will sometimes see a skin & coat problem get a little worse before it gets a lot better.

Probiotics are another great idea in this spot. As opposed to steroids or antibiotics which lower the immune system, probiotics help to boost the immune system so that it is better able to fight invaders. Yogurt, kefir, and cottage cheese are good examples of foods with a good supply of healthy bacteria. One can also find this, plus more in the ~OptIn_47~ supplement.

There are several other remedies that are good for helping to relieve the discomfort of allergies. Fish oil is a great source of omega-3 fatty acid, which helps to promote healthy skin and a glossy coat.
  • Lavender Noni lotion is a great way to provide fast and effective relief for hot spots, skin rashes, open sores, etc.
  • Sovereign Silver first aid gel is known to reduce topical pain, calm skin inflammation, fight minor skin infection, and promotes healing.
Because we speak to our customers frequently, we know that most of them have pets that have allergies, had allergies, or are trying to prevent allergies from occurring to begin with. It is the #1 reason that people find us, and we know the situation is painful for everyone involved. The good news is that we have a phenomenal track record at working with these issues and others, and will continue to provide solutions to our customer’s problems. Whether in the form of our diet, supplements, newsletters and articles, or personal attention via telephone (1-866-282-2273) or email (info@barfworld.com), we look forward to keeping your pet happy and healthy.

Until next time...happy BARFing.
