Female GSD 12yo
I have a female GSD 12yo that has been through a lot in 11yr 4mo since she adopted me! She recently went through a diet change and stopped eating her regular food of 6yrs. I went through several high quality brands before breaking down and cooking myself. She has been doing well with homemade food but I wanted to add more quality to her diet. After research, I came across BARF and started with 6# of Land and Sea Chubs. She absolutely loves it! Like most GSDs, she had her issues with skin/coat and occasional skin abscess. After starting on BARF, those have reduced in size or have completely gone. Her base food intake has reduced after adding just 8oz of BARF. A patch of top coat fur has returned. Her digestion has improved based on her bowel movements. Her energy level has improved. I hate that I did not find BARF earlier in her life.

Ragnar and Rowan Approve This Testimonial
Both of our rescued Great Pyrenees had extreme issues with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Because of this condition, inflammation throughout the body was a huge issue for both of them. Not only could we not deviate from the dry kibble we were feeding but even a single changed treat would result in gut trauma. Both dogs also suffered from joint concerns, our 3 year old female (Rowan) had to be on anti-inflammatory drugs to control for pain and over the course of 6 months we watched the mobility of our 7 year old male (Ragnar) decline dramatically-- so much so, he required assistance to get up from tile or hardwood floors. Dr. Ormston from ACES (All Creatures Every Spine) recommended the BARF World product. We were ready to try anything, but were so fearful of the gut distress the food change would cause. We started with a slow transition, and at both the Vet and company recommendation, utilized the E-BARF Plus powder to aid in the diet transition. Within a few days it became clear they had ZERO gut distress and we did a full transition. Within 2 weeks we completely eliminated Rowan's anti-inflammatory drugs. Within 4 weeks we saw a dramatic change in Ragnar's hip and leg strength-- he showed NONE of the weakness and his mobility was better than when we had first adopted him at the age of 4. As an added bonus we saw both their energy levels rise dramatically and improvements in not only their coats but also teeth, breath, and their ears as their allergies seem to have disappeared. I highly recommend not only this product, but the support of the entire BARF WORLD TEAM. This has made ALL the difference in all our lives and we are forever grateful!

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.

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!

Two years ago I came on the Barfworld website to see if liver sprinkles were still available. My 15 yr old cat Bubbs had been put on prescription food for kidney disease, she would not eat the food. To my surprise and delight I discovered Barfworld now had freeze dried food for cats, so I bought a bag to give it a try. Just as with my bichon Angel, Barfworld saved my cat, Bubbs! Bubbs transitioned to the food easily, some days she eats better than others but most times gobbles her food. Two years ago Bubbs kidney values indicated disease, just last week her blood work indicated her kidney values have NOT changed! Unheard of with a cat not on fluids and prescription food!!!! Also, Bubbs looks great! Within several weeks of her switching to barf, she gained muscle mass and weight! Looking at her no one would know she is an elderly cat with kidney disease and I attribute this directly to her Barfworld food!!!!! Thank you for loving pets and making them live healthy lives with the food they eat!!!! In addition, our Tilly used to have an accumulation of gas that would make her sides protrude and she looked fat, no medical reason was found yet once switching her to BARFworld she has lost the gas and her sides look like a normal body. Misty has heart disease, but since eating Barf she is fit and happy, no one would know her heart is sick! No vet near me attributes my pets' health success to their food, I guess doctors don't know everything!!!!! Tillie and Misty always lay together. Bubbs wants to be an only child:) Karin and Kristopher Schermerhorn

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.

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.

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!

Feeding is super easy
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!

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.

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.
- Janet P, Elk Grove, CA
My dogs, Bella and Sophie, are doing well on the BARF diet. I will never go to anything else.

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.

I decided to give it a try
I have two large yellow labs - Roxy and Maya who are sisters just over one year old. Both exhibited some joint issues at times especially after exertion - they would limp for several days and not want to be active. Roxy also had some dry scabs on her belly that seemed to be some kind of allergy. After reading about the BARF diet through the Health Alert Newsletter that I subscribe to, . Within a few days, Roxy's skin was clear and now after two weeks both dogs have slimmed down and have exhibited no joint issues after exertion. I figure the extra expense of this food will pay for itself in less vet bills and more happy tail wagging around the house.

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.

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! ?

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.

Our chiropractor recommended we try BARF.
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! Our sweet boy is back to his old self and loving life. He also loves the food which is a plus! We love our BARF family so keep doing what you are doing- you make a difference to us! Thank you!"

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 !

Life Changing Diet
Boomer is a 10 year old Boston Terrier, his health began to decline in the spring. He has always been a little large for his breed. I was prompted to put him on the Barf diet for several reasons. He had a constant hack/cough that was rather problematic. He was having trouble moving around and had low energy. He also had a large mass in his stomach and you could actually see a pouch hanging down from his stomach. Since starting the Barf diet 7 months ago he is a new, young dog. The results were seen rather quickly after beginning the diet. He has lost 12lbs, which is incredible since he had stayed heavy on only one cup of kibble a day for years. His cough went away and he no longer snores, which he has done his entire life. He was urinating frequently and would have me up 3 to 4 times a night to let him outside; he now sleeps through the night.
