One of the first things you will notice about dogs being fed the BARF Diet® is better quality of life!
Living Enzymes are proteins found in raw foods which help the body function. Enzymes are only beneficial to the body if they are living. Once food is cooked or processed, it no longer contains living enzymes. Foods without living enzymes put stress on the pancreas to produce the necessary proteins to function. Living Enzymes in a raw diet restore, repair, and maintain health. Animals replenish their enzymes systems by eating raw unprocessed foods. Our convenient diets retain their living enzymes, along with phyto-chemicals, antioxidants, and unprocessed amino acids. Your pet’s long term health depends upon these factors to ensure a long and healthy lifespan.
Healthy Teeth & Breath
Your pet will have much-improved breath, minimal tartar buildup, and beautifully clean and healthy teeth; all without having to visit the pet dentist or brushing the teeth. In addition, periodontal disease that is so prevalent with pets fed grain-based diets is almost nonexistent.
Healthy Skin & Coat
This can be one of the first changes you will notice when you start feeding the BARF Diet®. If those persistent skin problems suddenly disappear or improve, and you no longer need vet visits, medicated washes, antibiotics, cortisone shots and cortisone tablets, it has to mean that the natural, healthy, and raw diet is supplying nutrients that other diets are missing. It really is hard to ignore the deeply colored, lustrous, thick and healthy coat!
Optimum Immune System
The BARF Diet® normalizes and strengthens the immune system. The immune system is a wonder of creation. Because the BARF Diet® contains a good balance of essential fatty acids and other immune normalizing and strengthening nutrients, it reduces inflammatory conditions and waves good-bye to infections.
Enhanced Digestion & Absorption of Nutrients
Living enzymes break down and utilize food to maximize the digestive system’s effectiveness.
Pet owners that switch their older pets to the BARF Diet® usually find that whatever degenerative disease their pet has contracted becomes less of a problem. Our raw diet is not a wonder drug, but it has reversed many aggravating degenerative conditions and has given relief to a variety of diseases. One has to only review the various testimonials to see the dramatic changes that a biologically appropriate diet can make. Even arthritic conditions are improved and you can expect to see greater mobility in your pet. This is part of the reason so many older pets have a new lease on life when switched to the BARF Diet®.
Stool Volume & Odor
Reduced stool volume and odor is a sign of an improved and healthy digestion cycle. The BARF® DIET™ is more readily absorbed, than grain fed diets, in the digestive system and the result is less stool volume and odor. Odorous stools are a result of improper or incomplete digestion of nutrients.
Healthy, Lean Body Mass
By feeding the BARF Diet®, your pet will lose unwanted fat and gain that much desired increase in muscle mass. This not only makes your pet look better, it increases your pet’s metabolic rate, its activity levels, and its healthy life span. The effect will be more rapid if you combine the BARF Diet® with some normal exercise.
