What is the BARF Diet?

What is the BARF Diet?

Although it is a funny acronym, you should consider learning about the BARF diet!

BARF stands for...

  • B - Biologically 
  • A - Appropriate
  • R - Raw
  • F - Foods

This diet is the most common and popular raw diet for dogs (per PerfectlyRawsome.com). Consisting of raw muscle meat, raw edible bone, liver & other organs, vegetables, seeds & nuts and fruit, pet parents consider feeding this diet as it closely resembles what our pet’s ancestors would have eaten prior to domestication. Be sure to visit the link above to learn about the recommended ratios associated with a BARF Diet!

Another great source to learn more about feeding a raw diet is Mayor Tyson Bulldog. His blog recommends 3 key factors to being successful, including:

  • Rotating Proteins
  • Portion Sizes
  • Common Sense 

A visit to Mayor Tyson’s blog will also help you get started with some creative meal options & recipes!

Our favorite fluffy foursome, the PBJ Pack, also have a great tutorial on preparing raw food meals. They recommend grass-fed & free-range meats, along with organic vegetables, to increase the benefits of raw feeding (improved teeth & breath, reduced allergies, bousted immune system, increased stamina and more!). 

Want to learn even more? Here is a video deep-dive into raw feeding. Check out Dog Dad’s advice, in his “Free Raw Feeding Guide” video on YouTube!

Warning: Beware of Toxic Blue-Green Algae

It’s the heart of the Summer when Primalvore Pups & their Families are spending more time outdoors. Many of those outdoor activities involve water, whether they are visiting the beach, going for a hike along a lake or stream, or trips to the local park with a pond. When the days are hot, it’s natural to be attracted to water to cool off and to play.

While all outdoor activities are associated with some risk, the Primalvore team wants to draw your attention to a risk that is very serious this time of year...
