BARF Diet, One Alternative

As the list of recalled pet foods grows, loving pet owners worry more and more. "Is my pet's food on the list?" "Will it be added to the list?" Switching to a new type of food might be the answer, until the new food is suddenly recalled, too.

What is the alternative?

One possibility is the BARF Diet. The BARF Diet claims to be safe and nutritious and has been around for years. It is not a new philosophy, in fact, the BARF Diet website, Barf World, claims that the diet "mimics the way your pet used to eat before highly processed, grain-based foods entered our pet’s food chain." What is it? Basically, the diet is a "biologically appropriate raw food."

Might be worth a try but always check with your veterinarian before making any major changes to your pet's diet.
