Is Raw Food Taboo or 

Just Down Right Scary?

We recently went to an event in Minneapolis to network and showcase some of our products and educate the community on raw feeding. Over the last 9 years with BARF World®, I have seen so many changes within the raw food community. Nine years ago raw feeding was frowned upon and the majority of pet parents had little to no knowledge on raw feeding.

At the pet market, I had the opportunity to chat with pet parents and asked them questions like:

  • Do you have a dog or cat?
  • What are you currently feeding?
  • Are you familiar with raw food?

While discussing raw feeding with some of  these pet parents, I could hear the fear in their voices and sense their distrust and reluctance towards feeding a raw diet to their pet. Even though raw feeding is more  common nowadays, many pet parents still find it taboo and/or down right scary to feed raw to their pets. Why is that? Wouldn’t you want to feed your pet the best and healthiest food that you can? Isn’t their longevity and overall health important to you? After all, having a pet is like taking care of another family member. After the event concluded I was more determined to continue educating  pet parents that still may be “on the fence” about giving raw food a try. I thought to myself, are these pet parents just intimidated with something that is not as easy as just scooping Fido’s food out of a bag? Is it because it is not a food that can sit in their pantry for months at a time? Is cost a concern? Or are they just scared that their vet may be upset with them if they discontinue feeding a prescription diet (filled with chemicals and preservatives) that they are being told is  the best nutrition for their pet’s health concerns? After all, we just want what’s best for our beloved pets.

To put things into perspective, our team has worked endlessly to try and remain true to our brand as we fight against the challenges of what was once just a few raw food brands in the industry. How do we continue to stay in business when e-commerce has become larger than life over the last year? Or how about the shortages in the supply chain that every industry is currently dealing with?  What I can say is that after being in business for over 20 years, we have not gone against our philosophy and will continue to only recommend and produce products that are the best and of highest quality. We truly believe that our pets are like family. 

So to anyone that doubts or hesitates on transitioning to something unfamiliar, scary or intimidating like raw food; know that you can have confidence in BARF World®. We can create a customized feeding plan that works best for you and your pet. Your pet's health will always come first. You don’t have to take my word for it.
