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!

I Feel Healthy and Strong
This is my seven year old dachshund and he has been on barf food for at least two years. He can't walk but I bring him on a ginger lead walking every day and being on the barf diet has made him healthy and strong. Thanks barf world.

BARF for LIFE
I've been feeding my guys BARF since I adopted them at 2 years of age. They are around 11 now and still look and act young. I attribute this to the BARF diet! Thanks BARF!

When we first got Chloe and Heidi they were 8-weeks old and had been on kibble. They pretty much came with digestive issues, especially our Westie (Chloe). There was a lot of bloody diarrhea - both of them - and I had just lost another Westie to bloody diarrhea before then. The thought of losing a brand new puppy to the same thing - I just couldn't stand it! We were looking online for what to do about bloody diarrhea and came across BARF. We thought it was a joke at first - BARF for dogs! But I got to reading about it and ordered some books to do my research. We decided that this might be the way to go. Boy, once they got on the BARF Diet, they were fine. The change was almost immediate! They haven't had any problems since, we don't need to go to the vet, their teeth have never been cleaned the four years they have been on BARF because they have never needed to be cleaned. They are just real healthy! I swear by raw foods. I've told a lot of people about it. You put a lot of care and quality into your product.

HI BARF World! I just want to thank you for a great food I got for my dog. She is doing so much better after be put on your diet.

Kibble made me BARF
Rocky is doing really well and he loves the patties. And we love them because they are easy. It's a lot better than giving him dry food. We tried him on some high end kibbles but it never agreed with him. He got diarrhea immediately. We stopped it all together and now he is doing fine on BARF.

The Adorable Stewart
Stewart, my adorable Westie, was having bouts of gastritis. No matter what the vet prescribed the gastritis was getting more frequent and intense. The next step was going to be a gastroscopy. I started researching causes/cures for gastritis and came across the benefits of a raw diet which then led me to the BARF diet. Since starting the BARF diet almost two months ago, Stewart hasn't had any gastric upsets. In addition his coat and breath have improved. Plus he hasn't needed any Medrol for itching. I couldn't be happier and Stewart really enjoys his meals!

I began using BARF in 2010
and have been extremely happy with the product and the excellent service.
- Lynn B, Arkport, NY
My older chihuahua had become grumpy, she was sore and most of the time wouldn’t even get out of her bed. She could barely make it up and down the stairs. A friend recommended BARF, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try it for a couple months. This food has changed my dog’s life! She is like a young happy pup again, running, playing, exploring. I would have never believed just a food swap could make such a big difference. It has been the most amazing thing to see! Please do not hesitate to give BARF “a try” .... I’m a forever customer... seeing was believing in my case. I love my fur babies, they deserve to be happy and healthy, and with BARF they are!
- Brooke B, Summerville, SC
We are very happy clients!
Since changing our dogs to the BARF diet, their weight normalized and they are much more satisfied with their food! Service is excellent, shipping is always on schedule, and communication is a top priority. Thank you BARF World!

BARF from the Beginning
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,

This is the story of a Sphynx cat who has had many challenges since day one.
When Harry was born his head was caught in the birth canal. His jaw had to be reset, and some of his front canines did not develop quite right, leaving him with one special fang that always shows in his smile. Later when he was declawed and neutered, the Fentanyl patch used for pain nearly killed him. The veterinarian was concerned he would not survive. Around this time, it was determined that Harry also has a heart murmur and two luxating kneecaps that pop out from time to time. Harry was placed through a rescue organization in his forever home in 2013. His mom has this to say: "I immediately bonded with him. He loved to be spoiled and babied. But three pounds underweight, Harry was having intermittent problems with loose stools and diarrhea. Several times in the past three years he would become so dehydrated he would spend weeks at a time at the veterinary clinic getting IV fluids, multiple medications, and prescription diets that only seemed to help for a short time. Dealing with this issue was a vicious cycle. The low point came when the vet suggested we consider euthanasia. He has always been so happy, and didn’t act like he was suffering. I found myself at a crossroad". What do you do when nothing else works? "I did a lot of research on digestion problems and over and over BARF World came up. I had nothing to lose, so decided to contacted BARF World. The team responded and offered me some generous solutions. Everything they said about their product was 100% true and has exceeded my expectations in every way. Harry has put on weight! I no longer see his ribs. Instead he has muscle definition, his skin is glowing, and he finally has healthy stools. Bottom line: Harry is alive because of BARF World and the caring individuals on the team. They have established the gold standard of excellence and high quality in both their products and their customer service." Sincerely, Mary Ann Cade

Dolly is our rescue.
She would have mild seizures every 2 weeks or so. After being on BARF for a while, the seizures have been less frequent. We haven\'t had one in 6 months! They are BARFers for life.

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 are so grateful
Galileo is our 10.5 year old cockapoo who's had some minor skin sensitivity and stomach issues. When we switched over to BARF we were looking for something that would help him to transition into his golden years. He's LOVING BARF! He's got more energy than ever, his skin and coat are glowing! We also love the added bonus of having to pick up much less and smaller 'deposits' when we go for our walks. to have BARF as a part of Galileo's health plan!

I'm recommending you guys to every dog owner I know.
I really appreciate the feedback - this is awesome customer service! I have noticed he drinks a lot less water, has less gas and is panting less. It's a pretty profound change now that I really consider all the variables.

No More Dry Eyes
My King Spaniel Winston and Havanese Havi have been on the BARF Diet for 3 month's now. They have been doing wonderful. I can give all the credit to the BARF Diet for the improvement in their skin and coat. I even noticed an Havi's dry eyes improve!

We read the label
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.
- Dianna E, Tribune, KS
Chubby and Tike are doing great!
They both love meal time now, and poops are small. When we first started them on it we noticed a huge change in Tike. He seemed to get some "puppy energy" back. My husband and I also just feel better and safer about feeding it to them.

This is Fisher. He competes regularly in Agility and nosework competitions. We get tons of compliments on how great he looks since he’s been on the BARF diet. We have been so happy with how the 2 dogs we tried the diet with have looked and felt that we have now put a third dog on it. The dog we just put on the diet has had inflamed eyes since we have had her (she was a rescue several years ago). In the two weeks that she’s been on the diet we have noticed the whites of her eyes are white and not red! We highly recommend this food! The customer service has been great as well, super friendly and fast delivery !

My goldendoodle, Daisy recently started dog agility training and she's just flying through those hoops.
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.

Our pup was suffering from severe spinal issues and our chiropractor recommended we try BARF. That was over 2 years ago and I will never go back!

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.

My Chihuahua Rocky is 11 years old and is new to the BARF Diet.
In less than 30 days I have noticed some great results. He loves the treats, EBARF Plus and Alaskan Naturals Salmon Oil. I add these supplements to every meal because he loves it all and enjoys his Etta Says Liver Treats. I stopped feeding kibble and definitely made the right switch to the BARF Diet. I am so happy to see that Rocky is acting like a pup again and his skin and coat issues have almost diminished!

The BARF Diet is easy
The breeder that we bought Clyde from that recommended a raw meaty bone diet. We tried feeding different raw diets but it proved to be messy. Even dehydrated diets proved to be messy. The BARF Diet patties are easier since the patties are already made out. I don't understand people who think it is crazy to feed a raw diet. Why would you give your dog something that is processed - what do you think they ate before kibble was invented, Coconut Chicken!?
- Justin H, Lake Oswego, OR
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!!!

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

Thank You BARF World!
Your hard work on balancing the perfect diet has made a significant difference to my fur baby. We have a beautiful, sweet English black Labrador named, Camie. At age 18 months old she began to experience fur loss on both sides of her body. Our vet suspected a food, hormonal or environmental allergy and we start with changing her diet. After trying a few different dehydrated, grain free brands, with no result, we decide to contact her breeder to see if they had seen or heard of fur loss on any of their labs. She asked me about the food and treats I was giving Camie. To my surprise Everything I was giving her was high in starch and sugar which, as a result, contribute to a yeast infection on her skin and inner ears. My poor little girl was losing fur, itchy, with a dull/course coat and had an ear infection! Our breeder highly recommended that I switch to BARF raw food and explained all the ingredients and benefits. I immediately called the friendly staff at BARF World. A Raw Food Specialist explained how the shipment would come in a Styrofoam container on dry ice and that I have the option to place orders online at my convenience. At first I thought, "This isn't going to work". We live in an RV full-time, are rarely in the same location (not to mention the limited freezer space) and sometimes lack Internet service. Well, let me tell you...they make it simple!! When I don't have Internet service or have a specific delivery location, I call the friendly team at BARF World and a Raw Specialist takes care of me! They are always very kind, helpful and never miss an order. Two days later, I received my first order. I couldn't wait to give Camie her Juicy Lamb Patties. Of course, she loved them right away! We call them Her "hamburgers". She gets so excited, sometimes I swear her tail is going to wag off! With in six months Camie's fur grew in thick, shiny and soft. She no longer is itchy and her ear infection is gone. Finally she is healthy, happy and back to being as beautiful outside as she is within. Thank you BARF World and staff! Tania, Mike and Camie K.

Thank you, Barf World, for doing everything right.
Buddy is an 8-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Prior to putting him on this diet, he seemed to behave in what we thought was an age-appropriate manner. We were wrong - he now acts like a puppy, races to his bowl for each feeding and is behaving like a 2-year-old puppy. Your customer service is beyond compare and it is a pleasure to speak with each and every one of them. Your company is a breath of fresh air.

Trial and Error until BARF!
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 cannot say enough about this food except - we love it!
- Wendy and Thomas K, Fresno, CA
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.

People stop and stare now
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.

Senior dog feeling young again
We had dogs that had health issues. There was a doctor who was saying that raw food was the best thing to feed your dog so we tried making the diet at home but it was such a hassle because we would be trying to balance the raw meet with the appropriate vegetables and we never knew if we were giving the right balance of nutrients. We came across BARF World online and said this is the answer we have been waiting for. Its all in patties and everything was perfectly balanced. We tried it and they gulped it down - they loved it. It was the answer we had been waiting for. Our vet said he have never seen ear canals this clean. Our Shi Tzsu, Gus, is 11 years old and goes on 4 mile walks. He has no arthritis or any problems. Lulah and Miss Pittypat are slim and trim and in perfect shape. People look at how great they look and I tell them its the raw diet they

My Jack Russell, George is doing great on the BARF Diet.
We had tried it originally for our previous dog, Lucy. She was having dietary problems. The other diets, even vet recommended food, wasn't working for her- she would even throw that up. Bull terrier websites online said that raw food was the best thing to give her but the idea of throwing a raw chicken breast on the floor grossed me out. So, in my research online, I found the BARF diet. The chronic diarrhea and vomiting totally disappeared in a week!

My husband and I decided to document our Deer–Faced Chihuahua Roadie’s, BARF Story. We are certain that it is so incredible and unbelievable if we had not experienced it for ourselves. I don’t know if we would believe it ourselves if we heard of such a remarkable story and great results. was born June 2001, and is currently 13 years old. Prior to Dec 2012 Roadie was a happy, healthy, active dog. She played ball, played with her toys, ran the beaches at our lake, barked at strangers and was her own boss. She always had symptoms of reverse sneezing and tarter. We brushed her teeth once a week or so and were able to keep it to a minimum.

Ollie has always been a picky eater, even when it comes to treats.
He only eats ones that have mostly meat, and he never enjoyed the more expensive kibbles that claimed to have higher meat content. But he definitely loves his BARF! It\'s always all gone within 30 seconds! He\'ll never go back to kibbles again.

I will never go back to kibble.
When we first brought our new Labrador retriever puppy home we noticed a few concerning things. He drank a lot, and I mean an excessive amount. I never saw so much drinking! He also went poop all the time. We called him a poop machine. And he was very overweight and had a sour odor. I've been feeding my adult dogs a raw diet for a while, yet I was concerned about giving our growing puppy proper nutrition. That's when I decided to try BARF. It's only been a month and we can see a marked improvement in our puppy's health. He no longer drinks large amounts of water, his stools are more dense and less volume, and his coat has become thicker, softer, and shinier, and he no longer smells bad. I know Labs love to eat but when I see how much he enjoys his BARF patties I can't help but smile knowing all that goodness is helping his body grow up to be strong and healthy. He just looks like he feels better in every way, and I love knowing he is healthy and strong. I have learned so much about the benefits of feeding my dogs raw that

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.

Extraordinary change in my go!
The change in Mr. Pickles has been extraordinary! He is a new dog since I changed his food to Barf. He has been a long time sufferer of pancreatitis. He was always bloated and uncomfortable, he would cozy up to you and as soon as you would pet him he would get up and walk away. Poor lil guy was probably so uncomfortable he didn't want to be touched. Now he's so much more loving, the bloating is completely gone, and he has his puppy figure back. Also, his coat is so soft and he's got that puppy skin! He is loving long walks and he is loving to play again too! I swear, he's a new man! I can not thank you enough Barf!

This is our new puppy Otis! We committed to Barf for 90 days but weren’t sure for the long haul.
We now are officially committed. Very easy, convenient and Otis loves it. Great customer service. Better yet as a physical therapist, I totally believe in proper fuel. We love Otis and want him around for a very long time. Thanks to Mariposa Portuguese Water Dog's - David Swank for introducing us to the raw diet and Barf World. Otis is a very active Portie who loves his raw diet. We love the convenience and customer service and the benefits of raw

Leisl has had tummy troubles ever since we got her three years ago. We thought she was just a picky eater, but then discovered that she was getting colitis-type infections that required trips to the vet and antibiotics. We tried every kind of food out there, including grain free, without success. She would sometimes go several months without an infection, but eventually she'd end up back at the vet. A good friend recommended we look into the BARF diet because her dog had such good success with it. Leisl's been on the BARF diet for almost a month. She loves the food and has done very well with it so far. We are very hopeful that this is the answer to our doggy's tummy troubles.

Just want to let you know that my babies LOVE their new food! When I was told about Barf food at first I had my reservation. I already had my experience with a raw diet and though Tyson loved it, I couldn't make Ava to eat it at all. It took me 6 months to finally build up my courage to sign up with Barf as you know a raw diet is not very cheap and I didn't want to waste my money again!!! Well..... I have no regrets at all!!! Of course, It is a little too soon to see any health changes but so far I am impressed with everything else!!! My dogs are loving the feeding time and getting very excited about it :) Ava was very skeptical at first but now she is 100% sold!!! Thank you soooo much for incredible service and a little gift we got last week from you! The lamb treats are the bomb :)))

I have NO doubts about the BARF World diet and its great benefits!
I am getting ready to reorder and I thank you very much for the coupon. We discovered the BARF Diet about 2 years ago. We knew that our vet would "freak" if we mentioned a raw diet. I have a 2½ year old, rescued, Corgi mix named General (23 lbs.). He was a "picky" eater so the vet had us add canned food to his dry food. His coat was blond, one-color, dull and dry. After putting him on BARF, his coat became soft and shiny with beautiful markings. He also eats with relish! At General's yearly visit to our vet, I explained the reason for putting him on a raw diet. The vet said General was doing great. She noted that his coat was the best she had ever seen it. She asked about my sickly Bichon, that she had seen several months before. She asked, "Amit has been awfully quiet?" I said, "Yes, he's doing really well!" I did not mention his dietary changes! I have a 12 year old Bichon, named Amit (Ah-meet), (18 lbs) Hebrew for "friend." He was sick from puppyhood. His first three years, he did not want to eat. When we could finally coax him into doing so, he threw up most of the time. Poor little guy! The vet finally discovered he was "allergic" to his food and put him on a prescription Duck and Potato diet - duck byproducts (duck bills, toenails, etc.) and yum!... potatoes. He still had horrible allergies and chewed his feet and legs until they were infected at times. For years, he was on two prescriptions to keep his billious stomach syndrome and pancreatitis from acting up: cimetidine and metaclopramide. I gave him allergy shots. After Amit had just seen the vet for his yearly checkup and bloodwork, then we introduced him to the natural diet -VERY gradually. He began to improve and after a year, we returned to the vet for his regular visit. The proof was in the pudding, I mean the BARF! She did not disagree with the results! He is now our "bouncing Bichon." He is off all meds and once again, he is alert and playful. (We also give him E-Omega Coat.) Once again, thank you for the coupon. Because of the expense, we do mix some natural dry food with the BARF. However, we make up the extra cost for food in saved vet bills. Thank you for this food that gives our precious companions good health and helps us to increase the years they spend with us.

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

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.

Simply the best food for dogs.
Skater, my nine month Cavalier had loose stools and diarrhea with his dry food and just didn't like his food but he loves BARF. My five month Cavalier also loves it and is doing well. Happy to have found BARF.

We will never be without BARF again!
“We started Winston on BARF patties the day we brought him home from the breeder. Not only does he have an extremely healthy digestive system, but also the external benefits are undeniable. His coat has always looked amazing, with a beautiful sheen and very little dander. We rarely, if ever, need to brush him and he sheds much less than our previous lab who didn't have the benefit of the BARF food. We hear from strangers all the time what a gorgeous coat he has! Winston loves his BARF patties so much that when we recently ran out (due to my own error in ordering), he went on a hunger strike! We had to stick our faces in his bowl, pretending to eat it in order to get him to eat even a little bit! When that didn't work, I tried putting it in a treat toy, to no avail. His patties have arrived and all is well in the Bard-Pelletier home now! Thank you also to the wonderful staff at BARF World who are always so friendly and helpful!”

Why change a good thing?
Honestly, I have fed my dogs BARF from the beginning because I wanted only the best for them. They love it and are happy and healthy, so why change a good thing!

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 \

This is just the beginning
I have just started the salmon oil and probiotics, and want to feed these for now. Shelly is doing good with no problems with either one now.

proper diet for my poodles
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.

We laughed at the name
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. , 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. I'm so happy to say that Cissie is now one happy, healthy dog! Thank you, BARF World for your part in that!

Like many German Shepherds, Sascha had some stomach issues
resulting in diarrhea and ocassional loss of appetite. Since switching to BARF she has been problem free. Her cost glistens and she is highly energetic. We are very pleased with the BARF products.

My Chiropractor recommended BARF
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.

Sage is in love with her BARF food.
She can't wait for meals. In fact she wakes me up in the morning to get her breakfast started. She is definitely a happy BARF customer!

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.

He gobbles it up in two seconds
Chico loves this food - he gobbles it up in two seconds - it has done wonders for his digestion. He has been on Barf for years. He was a rescue and about 5 when we got him. He had been kept in a cage with diapers because his owners were not able to walk him. I remember the first time he lifted his leg - I was so proud! He lost almost all of his teeth and was very anxious. After being on Barf he flourished. Except for his rabies shot, every 3 years, he has never been to a vet. He is now 12 and very well adjusted and loves his chicken nuggets

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.

She's excited for mealtime
Kaylie has never wanted to eat much of her dry kibble over the years and basically starves herself unless we add a treat or something from the table to her food. I was always concerned about her health due to Kaylie refusing to eat her meals or from Kaylie eating too many treats or eating food from our table that may not be optimal for her. After we started Kaylie on the Barf diet she has been very excited to eat her meals and she scarfs it up so quickly! She never misses a meal and since she was on the lower end of her weight range, Kaylie is now gaining a couple of needed pounds! Meal times are no longer a struggle for me or for Kaylie! We are so very happy we found out about the tasty and nutritious raw Barf diet for our precious Kaylie!

Mars is glad that we have returned to the BARF Diet.
We tried a cheaper brand but found they were indeed \

Long Time BARFER
I have been feeding BARF for a long time now. We started on it because Lucy, our mini poodle, was having terrible digestive problems. She had a crisis and had to be hospitalized. She was vomiting and losing weight quickly- just wasting away. We had to force feed her just to keep her alive. But she came out of it and now she is doing as best as she can possibly do. I think the change to raw saved her life!

Bentley was diagnosed with Pancreatitis in Oct.
2015. I did a lot of research on finding ways to treat this and his weight issue. I had him on some other diets that weren't working. I feel very fortunate to have found this product. He has been on this for little over a month and he is doing fantastic. His weight is down and I will be taking him to his Vet in June to have is blood work done to see what his levels are. I do believe they will be much better than they have been as I can certainly see how well he is doing and how much more active he is on the BARF diet!

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! This testimonial is for you Angel Marie Schermerhorn, so your story can save another fur mom and or dads baby!!!!!! Love you baby girl! Mom!

She made the switch in one day.
My dog, Kai, is a Japanese Spitz and incredibly spoiled-as in, she thinks she is a person. I had thought about switching her to a barf-type diet for about 5 years, but never really felt a pressing need to do it. About 6 months ago my sister\'s dog (which happens to be my dog's sister) was diagnosed with cancer. My sister immediately switched Koa to BARF. Stacey had so many good things to say that I decided to try it for Kai too. Well, Kai absolutely loves the patties. She had no stomach upset, no illness at all. However, Kai does not at all like the supplements that come with the BARF diet. So I wouldn't recommend them for everyone. We've only been on the diet for less than a month, but it has been smooth sailing all the way (except for the supplements) and I highly recommend the BARF diet to anyone.

He just loves the patties, he inhales them!
Henry is my French Bull Dog. He has been on raw ever since we brought him home and has always been healthy. His poop is always solid and has no digestive problems. I mix his raw food with the salmon oil supplement and he has fantastic skin.

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!

My son's dog stays with us sometime and has a lot of energy.
When she gets playing with my dog, Sarah, they are too much for my big dog, Elvis, he doesn't like it. They get out of control sometimes. I give the pup 2 sprays of the Rescue Remedy and 20 minutes later she is a lot calmer. It takes her down a notch.

Healthier Than Ever
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!

One of our yellow labs, Scotch, can be quite the picky eater.
He gets bored with his food and doesnât always eat at mealtimes. So we got the Etta Says! Treats Liver Sprinkles Protein Powder and started topping his food with that and now he gobbles it right up! ?

I am absolutely thrilled I can keep the freeze-dried nuggets in the pantry.
My German Shepherd loves it and can't get enough! We have already gone through the one bag I ordered to try. You guys are so helpful!
- Connie S, Tacoma, WA
Rielly is doing great.
Knock on wood, my dog is 9 years old and he hasn't had a health problem at all. I would never change his food. He is still going strong and doing great. You guys are fantastic as always and I appreciate you.

Hank was all we could ask for when we brought him home.
A beautiful 12 week old Merle Great Dane. We loves everything about him, his massive paws, loving eyes and playful persona. What we didn't like was the mess he left in our yard. The BARF diet has made a huge difference! The clean up has greatly improved, leaving us more time for play and less time for chores!
- Katherine S, Newport, NC
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!

Before BARF Gibson was having facial ticks when he would eat.
Since eating BARF they have almost gone away. Also his breath is fresher and his much smaller stools. BARF has really made a difference!
- Nicholas S, Las Vegas, NV
Stool is COOL?
I thought it was normal for Lily to poop 6 times a day. Now that she is on BARF she poops a small firm amount only two times a day. I can't believe it! Prior to BARF she had soft serve stools and now they are completely firm. It only took one meal too!
- Susan S, Las Vegas, NV
We love the BARF Diet.
Our five little yorkies are so happy and active. Their hair looks great and we're really pleased about this product. Plus it's great that when they poop that there's not a lot of mess. We make sure to tell all our friends about it!
- Bill and Linda T, Point Comfort, TX
Just for Show
I feed the diet to my Show Pug, Boo. I would make the diet myself but it was very time consuming. I like BARF's variety of formulas and I like the auto delivery. It is a lot more convenient. I am really happy with it the results.
- John V, Youngsville, NC
They care so much
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 convenient. Isis can't 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!

I tried to cut back
My dogs, miniature schnauzers, have both been afflicted with bladder stones and were gaining weight, no matter how much I cut back on their kibble. I had been impressed by the health of a friend's dog who had been put on a whole food diet, and after some research, I found BARF. It's been nearly two years and they are at normal weight, have wonderful coats and no longer have issues with bladder stones. I love BARF, and, more important, so do the dogs. My vet is not convinced but can't argue with the results.
- Sarah V, Akron, OH
No More Gas
I have noticed their weight is now in line - they have little waists now. There is a little less itching and no gas. Poops are awesome now! They are smaller and seem to disappear quicker than I can pick them up.
- Delia W, Irving, TX
The change worked
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.
