Our Recipe was carefully developed to provide a balanced diet with our canines health and well being in mind. We have created a recipe following the B.A.R.F. (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food) rules of feeding - with great success!
Feeding raw can be a scary experience if you are not familiar with the dietary needs of your dog. Too little fat can result in a bad coat, too much fat and not enough protein can cause mild anemia. A canine balanced diet also needs the right amount of calcium and phosphorous to prevent bone fracture and dental problems.
A common mistake in commercial non raw pet foods listing grains as an ingredient is they actually cook the grains at a high temperature , which can cause starch, and proteins and fats become toxic in variable degrees, which can cause poor digestion . Poorly digested grains are said to support toxin producing bacteria in the lower bowel which can eventually lead to poison passing through the bowel wall into the blood circulation, causing organ issues and sickness. Cooked grains, meat, and bone are not a natural part of a canines diet. Raw feeding also provides moisture for the dog’s diet, which helps prevent dehydration.
The ideal amount to feed your canine is 3 to 5 percent of the dog’s body weight. Puppies can eat up to 4 times that amount of the expected adult weight.

Why is commercial dog food not good for my dog?
- There are a range of problems with commercial dog foods.
- A dog's food should never be cooked. It should be fed in a raw natural state like nature intended. Cooking a dog's food ruins most of the nutritional value.
- Dogs should have access to raw meaty bones. These clean their teeth, work and develop their neck and jaw muscles, and the chewing action prepares their stomach for the incoming food mass. Chewing bones also slows down the eating process considerably, making it far harder for a dog to overeat.
- Dog foods have as their main ingredient cereals - the main ingredient your dog should be eating is raw meaty bones. And it is these very cereals that cause a range of problems such as allergies.
- Commercial dog foods are laden with preservatives, colors (dyes), and salt. They have additives to make the food taste better so that the dogs will overeat.
- The vast majority of commercial dog foods have far too many carbohydrates in them. High levels of car bohydrates are linked to over-eating, diabetes, weight gain, and numerous other problems. Dogs should eat a diet with only a small amount of carbs.
- There is no substitute for a raw diet.
- Sales people convince your vet to recommend a commercial diet for financial inducements and are suc cessful because your vet does not have the time to fully research these products.
