Was referred to BARF by my last dog's chiropractic vet. They have been so helpful and patient to answer questions. My TiffySue had become so poorly that this was all she would consistently eat, and it was helping her. Unfortunately, her degenerative nerve condition also aggravated her heart murmur out of control and she had to be put to sleep. BARF called to check on her and were so sweet. Even sent a card. I now give this to my two mini-schnauzer puppies, and they love it. They are healthy, eat less, have tons of energy, and life is good. I'm a repeat customer and getting family members in on ordering, too.

Raising a Healthy fur baby
From her first day home at 8 weeks old, Anja has been a BARF baby! The vet calls her a poster child for raw feeding! I credit the food! BARF is a wonderful balanced product that provides her with the energy, immunity and dietary requirements for a healthy happy growing puppy. And she loves it!!!! Especially the new “Land and Sea” formula. Raw feeding isn’t easy but BARF products make it ALMOST effortless. So from 8weeks to 2 years old she has been a BARF baby. And she will be one as long as she is with me on this earth. I will say that once.... only once.... we were forced to feed a different food for a couple of weeks due to being away, biggest mistake ever. Within 3 days of eating the other food she began to scratch and bite at her skin. Her skin became dry and her coat lost all its sheen. Once home, she went back on the BARF diet and within a week her skin was clearing up and her coat looked like a coat and not a dirty rag. So never again! Try it and you can see the difference in your fur baby for yourself!!!!!!! Tracy S. And Anja. Knoxville Tennessee

Super picky pup approved!
I rescued Hudson a Newfoundland Lab mix at 11 months old. He was on Royal Canin Kibble. He didn't eat for the first week I had him, after that he'd eat a tiny bit, maybe and only after it was topped with a different topper every day. He hated meal time, and so did I. So many tears shed (all mine) over his not eating. I tried several different types of kibble, canned and fresh food. Nothing worked. Then I found Barfworld. And he's been eating it frozen (doesn't care for it soft) for every meal since April 2020. He's very healthy, great checkups, good teeth! His dry skin has gotten much better, allergies are better, and his poops are so much smaller! I tell everyone about raw food and Barfworld!

Very Happy Dog
We turned to BARF 4 years ago to stabilize our newly rescued English Cream Retriever. And it solved her digestive and allergy issues and she LOVED the food. Due to multiple moves and work travel schedules, we had to switch to a locally sourced freeze dried options. They were fine, but we had been noticing increasing bad breath and inconsistent bowel movements (higher volume and terrible odor). Now that we are settled in one place and no longer traveling, we have switched Ella back to BARF after a 2+ year interval, and within 2 weeks her breath and bowel movements are noticeably better. Additionally, she is even more excited about meal time, which we didn't think was possible.

Doggy and mommy approved! After trying almost everything that BARF has to offer to their customers, I can honestly say my dogs love everything. I have one picky eater (Maltese) and one that will eat anything, but starting to follow in his brother’s footsteps, (GSD). My GS has extremely bad non-seasonal allergies. After months of putting together a raw diet of my own, following BARF guidelines, I decided to put my feet up and let the professionals do the heavy lifting. My dogs are both allergic to chicken so we have tried the beef and lamb chubs, freeze dried and raw nuggets, beef liver and lamb lung treats, both dogs have enjoyed and look forward to all their food and treats. The staff is amazingly supportive, friendly and helpful, and always willing to share any knowledge they have to help you navigate through, what sometimes can be overwhelming topics, to help provide the best quality of life for your pet. Eating a raw and balanced diet can overcome so many issues that arise in dogs today, sometimes it’s hard what to know is best for your pet, but I can honestly say I am comfortable and confident in what I am choosing to put into my little (and big) ones bodies. Our pets rely on US to make the best decisions possible for them, and I truly believe BARF is the best out there. My dogs skin issues are beginning to clear up and I haven’t seen poop this good in SO long. If their insides are happy then I am happy. I cannot recommend the BARF products and company enough. .

You Are Our Heroes!
In May of 2019, Oliver's health took a drastic turn for the worse. He was suddenly unable to keep his food down, wasn't making any solid bowel movements, and would just pace the floor panting, unable to be comforted. We spent multiple, very expensive nights at the Emergency Vet who finally told us Oliver was inflicted with a severe case of Pancreatitis. It wasn't until this point that I learned Oliver needs to be fed a strict, low-fat diet. But the problem didn't exactly stop here. "Low-Fat" dog food not only has to be prescribed if you are buying it from pet stores, but the number of options out there can be counted on one hand. Poms are known to be picky eaters, but I swear Oliver takes this challenge to a whole new level. (Luckily I can laugh as I write this). Dry dog food is absolutely out of the question, and the other canned options were a hit or miss, depending on the day. I would stock up on a few different kinds only to come home and find out he wouldn't eat them. In addition to this, the medication he was on to help heal his tummy after his multiple trips to the vet were surprisingly only making matters worse. I had to force him to swallow the medication most of the time, and the "appetite stimulant" was actually having the opposite effect. He-would-not-eat-anything! And it was starting to show. After plenty of worrying, and another trip to the vet, I finally made the decision to stop ALL medication and immediately switch him to the B.A.R.F diet. As soon as I did this, his demeanor completely changed. His appetite was back, and he was scarfing down his food quicker than I could say "Bubba, slow down!" I was of course enamored by this, but still a bit apprehensive, because I wasn't sure if the B.A.R.F diet was low enough in fat. I reached out to customer support, who was not only easy to contact and quick to respond, but INCREDIBLY helpful. They assured me that the B.A.R.F diet is exactly that: low fat and easy to digest. I knew this was really my only option. He loves the food. I love that he loves the food so much. And we haven't looked back since. It has been well over six months, and there hasn't been a single day since I switched him back to B.A.R.F that he has had diarrhea or trouble keeping his food down. From the bottom of my Pom-Mom heart, thank you so so much! You are our heroes."

shes a young, happy puppy again!
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!

My dog Apollo is a very high energy dog but not a big eater. BARF satisfies him and his skin and coat look wonderful. His weight stays where it should be.

I was a new dog mommy.
When I first contacted you 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.

The 90 day challenge
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

BARF gave Daisy the protection she needed
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.

Pure Bred Poodle
My dog, Zipper - a pure bred miniature poodle, has been attached to my hip since he was a puppy 15 years ago. It broke my heart when he was diagnosed with Diabetes 4.5 years ago. After many tests and consultations it was determined he contracted diabetes from a combination of his diet and the medicine we administered to control his allergies, which include steroids and newer, steroid alternative drugs. I started him on his BARF diet as soon as he started his insulin treatments because I read that it would make it easier to control his blood sugar and that a raw diet will keep him healthier. I'm so glad I switched. Zipper is doing great!

It's like catnip or something.
I was feeding Max his dry food but he doesn't really like it. He wouldn't really eat unless he had to and his energy was really low. He's 9 years old and was starting to have some mobility issues. His eyes were also starting to turn white and glassy; but literally within a couple of months on the raw food he just looks and acts like he's 3-5 years younger. It's really amazing! After he eats the BARF patties he literally has this little puppy freak out where he's bouncing around the room with his little dog pillow. He thrashes it around and he's hyper for about a half an hour - he's just so happy. And that, from an older dog, is just not something you'd expect to see from just two patties of food. He just gets so happy and has a spring in his step.

My fur looks brand new
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.

Dolly is a BARFer for life
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.
- Robin C, John's Island, SC
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 :)))

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.

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 \

We have more energy now
Since we switched them over to the BARF diet, Lily and Daisy have more energy. We needed Daisy to lose some weight and she is now starting to lean up. As a rottweiler, she is supposed to have that hornet's waist and barrel chest and she is definitely getting her figure back. Daisy loves the food- just loves it. They'll always be on this diet!

The Holistic Approach
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!

BARF healed me
My Standard poodle blackjack has had chronic ear issues for over a year. After talking to a raw pet food specialist at Barf I decided to only give him raw food. It’s been just three months now and there has been tremendous healing in his ears. I had been using a combo of Barf and high end kibble. For him eliminating all kibble was required for healing.
- Marsha C B, Santa Barbara, CA
Kibble made me BARF
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!

We may be old but feel we feel young thanks to BARF
I have four senior dachshunds ages 14, 13, 10 and 12. They are all long-haired and have beautiful coats. The maintain a good weight and have pretty good energy for their ages. No one believes how old they are. I have been feeding them BARF for many years. I attribute their well-being to being fed BARF!

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.

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.

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!!!

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
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.

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! ?

Dont be afraid to start
I started feeding my 11 year old Beagle and 7 year old Golden Retriever the BARF diet about 2 months ago and have noticed positive changes in both of them. My Beagle's chronic ear inflammation has cleared up and he is no longer licking his paws. My Golden also looks great. Additionally, both my dogs have better breath!!

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.

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!

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

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,

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.

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 !
