Benefits of BARF

Why is BARF so successful ?


Firstly, let’s ask ourselves these questions :  


“Can we eat fast food or canned food at every meal and still stay healthy ?”  


NO… and neither can our pet dogs and cats ! When we feed processed pet foods, that is the SAME as us humans eating such unhealthy meals every single day. 


“What about if we feed such pet food and then supplement with all sorts of inorganic(synthetic) vitamins and minerals ?” 


Whether such supplements can be properly absorbed by humans and our pets’ bodies, is still being debated by scientists today. But as humans, we do not eat this way and neither should our pets. Why feed food that is severely deficient in nutrition, that causes health problems and THEN ... try to rectify the resulting poor health by feeding supplements ?  Logically, shouldn't we be feeding food that is nutritious and improves their health instead ?


For thousands of years, our dogs and cats have thrived successfully by eating raw meaty bones and kitchen scraps. In other words, these are the kinds of food that their bodies have genetically adapted to, over thousands of years of evolution. They didn’t used to have the skin, heart, kidney, dental, pancreatic diseases and skeletal problems that we see today. Cancer, Hip & Elbow Dysplasia in companion animals was hardly even heard of !!


Why ?? Simply because they never had to eat the commercially processed pet foods of today with their chemical preservatives, artificial sources of vitamins and minerals and that is cooked till their natural nutrients are either lost or de-natured into a form that’s actually harmful in the longer term.



On the other hand, the BARF diet is food that dogs and cats have evolved over many millennia to eat, whether in the wild or while living side by side with their human masters. It is the kind of food that has successfully kept them healthy, enabled them to reproduce strong healthy offspring and ensured their survival as a species till today. This is the hypothesis accepted by most modern zoos or any zoologist concerned with preserving a species of endangered animal.

Look no further than our very own Mandai Zoo. If the so-called scientifically researched diets (with their added artificial vitamins and minerals) similar to commercial processed pet food are really that good for the health of carnivores, don’t you think that our zoo would be feeding them by now? After all, they are definitely more convenient for our zoo and much cheaper. 


Allow us to reiterate : Our pet dogs and cats have been bred over the last few centuries for their different looks, mindsets  and behavioural characteristics. They have NOT been bred to change their basic physiology i.e. their digestive systems and nutritional requirements. Basically, BARF is NATURAL food and it IS nature's way of how they've evolved to eat.
