"Milly's been on the BARF Diet from the beginning and she's doing great. 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. She is such a doll. Everywhere we go people can't get over how cute she is."
"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.

"Being a Raw Vegan myself and understanding how to obtain optimum health, it is VERY refreshing to have a shipment sent right to my door every 2 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... You are all amazing, from the food to the customer service. WE LOVE BARF WORLD and are both forever grateful!!!"
"Zena is the reason why I initially went to raw food because I tried every kind of dog food for her allergies. She was getting ear infections and skin allergies (which white dogs are prone to). It was a nightmare!
The vet said, "Well, we could put her on shots," and I thought, "No. That's like putting a Band-Aid on a broken arm."
So I started doing BARF for Zena and then: no more ear infections. She used to itch herself under the armpit which is a tell-tale sign of food allergies. She would rip herself apart to the point where she was bleeding. It was horrible. But not anymore. It definitely works!"

"I've had Gemma on the BARF Diet since day one. Everyone remarks how shiny her coat is and how wonderful her teeth are. She doesn't have that doggie smell and her "business" is pretty nice. I LOVE this food!
I tell you: Gemma has a dog friend - whose a white lab - and when they run (and they really do run, like a free run along the beach or across the fields) you can see how fit she is. You can see all of her muscles. She looks good!"
"Chui is doing so well on the diet! I treasure every moment I have with him, because of having almost "put him down" I now marvel at how much I love him, and think of how awful that would have been! His eye condition seems to be totally taken care of and the fungal infection seems to be totally wiped out too thanks to our Raw Vet. Dr. Cathy Alinovi muscle tested Chui and recommended taking him off venison/duck/potato dog food that other vet recommended and instead feed raw food diet. For the most part he is a lazy bum but we do have about three play periods a day. Chui is so vibrant and full of life that we laugh our heads off"
"I have been using BARF for my three Scottish terriers and my Westie for months now though I have only transitioned them fully to BARF in the last couple of months. Often, in testimonials for dog food, I read "My dogs love it!" In and of itself, that is not a recommendation for a food. After all, our dogs will happily eat disgusting things out of the yard! What IS important, besides them liking a food well enough to eat it, is what results from that diet. I had my dogs on a high quality, expensive kibble (and also did a home-prepared diet for a period of time) before switching to BARF so I did not expect to see huge changes. Still, the differences were apparent after only about three weeks on BARF. Their coats were smoother, shinier, and softer. I noticed a reduction in dander so their skin condition was also improving. All of them had more energy and just seemed to have a sparkle they didn't have on any of the high quality kibble I had tried or even on my own home-prepared diet. I could not be more thrilled, my vet enthuses about their condition, and oh, yeah, my dogs LOVE it!
Dogs and food quality aside, I have to take a moment to rave about BARF World's customer service! While I have always recognized and appreciated good customer service, especially in a society where, sadly, good customer service seems to be the exception, rather than the norm, I have nevertheless been impressed with the customer service I receive from this company. I have recently had an experience which points up even more clearly how truly extraordinary BARF World is in this regard. On July 28th, I placed an order with an Internet pet supply company with whom I have not previously done business. I did not receive my order but my credit card was charged. When I got the CC statement at the end of the month, a full month later!, I contacted the company to find out where my merchandise was. They said it had been returned to them. I can't imagine why because they had my address right and that has NEVER happened to me with anything else I've ever ordered. They said they would ship it out again. Another month later and nothing. I contacted them and they said they would send it out. I received one item but not the other. I contacted them AGAIN and they said they would send it and I should receive it w/i four to eight days or less. Still nothing. Needless to say, I am DONE with this company. That is, I'm done once I go through the hassle of contacting my credit card and getting credited for the portion of the order I did not receive. Sigh. In contrast, when I contact my preferred representative at BARF World via e-mail, my preferred means of communication, I usually hear back from him the same day or the next day at the latest. Whatever I need or want, he is happy to accommodate and expeditiously. I wish all companies did business like BARF World and all reps I deal with were like the ones you will find at this company!!!"

"Cassie developed dry, itchy skin as well as scabs on her ears and throat so I thought I should change her diet. I started to supplement her kibble with BARF. I began to see dramatic improvement in her condition.Now that she’s been on the BARF Diet she no longer has those patches on her throat and ears and she has finally stopped itching!"

"Daisy Mae is a pure bred English Shorthair Pointer. In this puppy picture she is only 10 weeks old. Daisy Mae had chronic diarrhea after she ate anything! It was awful! I tried her on different vet recommended diets and with no luck at all. It was always the same result. She even got to the point where she didn’t want to eat because she felt sick all the time. Every time she ate, she was sick. I just knew I had to find a solution. I slowly weaned her on the BARF Diet. It took about a month. It also took about a month for the chronic diarrhea to subside. Now she loves meal time and she is a very healthy dog."

"I am a big believer in sharing knowledge, especially knowledge that can potentially change lives.
Our Abbey, a Dalmatian, just turned 14 years old! But exactly a year ago we didn’t know if she would make it to her 13th birthday. She suddenly became very ill and we were told that her kidneys were failing. Our vet told us there wasn’t much that can be done when the kidneys are damaged and recommended several times to put her down. But my husband and I were not willing to let her go without a fight.
We began searching the internet for solutions and found several hopeful stories about the changes in failing pets when their diets were changed to raw. So we imme- diately changed Abbey’s diet. Her BUN and cretin levels began to improve almost immediately. A year later, not only is she called the ‘miracle dog’ at my vet’s office, but she is happy, healthy and vibrant – more like a 5 year old than a 14 year old. An added bonus is that we were also able to take her off the monthly allergy shots that she had been on for more than half her life. Thank you BARF for making it so easy to give our beloved Abbey the diet she needs. Abbey thanks you too."

"Four years ago my beloved Border Collie
‘Sir Isaac’ started having epileptic seizures.
For the first year or so the seizures were single events and relatively mild. However, during the second year Sir Isaac started to develop cluster seizers – multiple seizers at a time which can be life threatening. I took Sir Isaac to multiple
veterinarians, including a neurologist, and the best we could do with drugs was to keep the time periods between seizers to every 28 days on average.
This 28 day average started to deteriorate during the second year and out of desperation I visited multiple web sites on canine epilepsy. A reoccurring theme in all of the websites was a reference to feeding epileptic dogs BARF; at the time, I did not have a clue what ‘BARF’ was. So after a Google search, I discovered BARF World and decided to try the product. Sir Isaac loves BARF and the period between seizers immediately increased from 28 to 51 days. Sir Isaac is now 8 ½ years old and still going strong. Thanks BARF World!"

"Our dog Stella had inflammatory bowel disease and vomited a great frequency. Our vet put her on a regimen of daily steroids and antibiotics. She became overweight and lethargy, not at all her usual self. Three days after switching to a raw food diet, we were amazed at her increased energy levels. We also took her off her medications. On that third day, she jumped and swam in a lake with our other dogs, before she would sit on the grass with us and not swim. She subsequently stopped vomiting and lost the weight she had put on while she was on the medications. The raw diet made all of the difference for her!"
"He 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. Here's a picture of my buddy (Rocket); he's a norfolk terrier, 3-1/2 years old and loving life!"

"This is my Italian Greyhound, Rhino. He's 4 1/2 years old. The past 2 1/2 years have been spent changing his dog food and trying to manage the runny nose, sneezing, coughing, sinus infections, bronchitis, and even a severe allergy to an antibiotic. There was a couple times I truly thought I was going to have to put him down and it just tore me apart. He was too young, yet the cost was becoming exorbitant and he seemed to be sick all the time. I knew I couldn't continue at the pace we were going not only because of the cost of vet bills, but for his own comfort as well, I decided to try him on a raw diet. After two and a half weeks of eating the raw food I noticed his sinuses had cleared. No more nasal congestion and no more sneezing. I was a little skeptical at first but after a few more days there was still no nasal congestion and no more sneezing. I was a little skeptical at first but after a few more days there was still no nasal congestion. Not only does he love it, but it truly made a difference in the life of my IG. I would highly recommend it to anyone!"

"I just wanted to let you know how well my two 'boys' are doing on their BARF diet. I could not be more pleased! I was recently looking at pictures of them from last spring and surprised to see how different they look after being on this diet for 8 months. My Yorkie mix had a very thin coat, fleas(that would not go away) and tear stains. Today he is flea free, and has a thick shiny coat and not a tear stain to be found. My Min Pin came to us from a rescue organization last March and was thin from being ill prior to his rescue. He is now glossy and muscular."

"I adopted a 3 week old Schnauzer mix who;s mama was rescued from a puppy Mill. When I brought Rio home he kept scratching and looked very uncomfortable. I wasn't sure if it was the food the rescue group had him on or not. I immediately went onto the web searching for better, natural food to give him. Thats when I found BARF. After I ordered it, I saw a complete change in Rio's skin and coat after a month. He completely stopped scratching and guess what? His breath doesn't even smell. He is now 8 months old and he love's his food. He will do back flips for it."

Dear Mr. Mueller,
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! His attitude chagned and he is the sweetest dog who loves everyone.
Noah has been a lot of work, but because of him and the Barf diet, I am able to share where he has come from and how comfortable he is and has been for 6 years.
Sincerely, William & Theresa Palleschi
"Thanks you are the best--you cannot believe the difference in our dogs- their coats are amazing-our one rescue, T-Tucker dances when he sees us getting the BARF out-what a sight for a 90 pound Shepard mix! It also is helping to control their weight and T is not shedding like he was. These are all just great side effects of knowing that your dogs are eating healthy and that by taking care of them we are extending our blessed time with them!"
