    BARF - Raw Food Diet for dogs

    I have been reading extensively about this and am giving serious consideration about moving my dog (labrador) onto a BARF diet. Does anyone out there use this diet for their dogs? How practical is it?

    I'm also interested with BARF diet. Is it a good diet for my Beagle?

    well I posted a pretty extensive reply about my experience but it didn't show up. I'll pm you

    Edit: figured it out, because I wrote a whole tome of information, it has to be approved by a moderator. Ah well. too bad for anyone else curious about it.

    Bacteria? Bad for digestion?

    Don't get super crazy about this. It isn't the same for dogs as it is humans.

    In my experience.. i've never had a problem. First up, I use freshly thawed chicken and serve it cold. I know some people who run it through warm water to make it smell more meaty, but my dogs don't seem to mind.

    I've never had a problem with internal parasites and even when I found out my pup ate something dead (thank you feral neighborhood cats), nothing came of it. She's still right as rain. Something I read once talked about the difference in dog digestion and bacterial tolerance. While humans react adversely to partially decomposed and raw meats, dogs have a measure of tolerance for it.

    Keep in mind, when I get a chicken from the super market and it smells off, I take it straight back. Usually a whole cut up chicken will last at least a week so I won't risk it going bad before then.
