Range:Barf Dog Food

The BARF Philosophy

The philosophy behind using BARF, or the hypothesis on which it is based is that the diet a dog evolved to eat - over many millions of years of evolution - is the best way to feed it. This is the hypothesis accepted by most modern zoos or any zoologist concerned with preserving a species of endangered animal. It is not the theory endorsed by pet food companies or the people they train - and that includes unfortunately - most vets.

If you want to feed your dog BARF, it means not feeding your dog cooked and or processed food. That is, not feeding your dog a diet based on cooked grains, no matter how persuasive the advertising. Artificial grain based dog foods cause innumerable health problems. They are not what your dog was programmed to eat during its long process of evolution.

A biologically appropriate diet for a dog is one that consists of raw whole foods similar to those eaten by the dogs' wild ancestors. . The food fed must contain the same balance and type of ingredients as consumed by those wild ancestors. This food will include such things as muscle meat, bone, fat, organ meat and vegetable materials and any other "foods" that will mimic what those wild ancestors ate.

Typical Ingredients:
Chicken, beef, pork, kangaroo, rabbit, depending on selection: finely ground chicken bone, beef liver, whole egg, cultured kefir, seasonal vegetables selected from broccoli, celery, spinach, carrot, ground flax seed, bok choy, dried alfalfa leaf powder, beef kidney, beef heart, unbleached beef tripe, seasonal fruit selected from apple, pear, grapefruit, orange, dried kelp powder, garlic, capsicum.


Chicken BARF is very suitable for all life stages and being based on a white meat (which is anti-inflammatory), is very suitable wherever a dog (or cat) is faced with some sort of inflammatory condition, such as arthritis, a skin condition and even where a companion animal is stricken with cancer, a condition, which is driven by inflammation. There are only two general circumstances that should prevent you from feeding Dr. Bís chicken BARF to your dog (or cat); firstly where your dog or cat has any sort of allergy to chicken and secondly where a cat or a dog requires a low fat diet.


Dr. Bís Beef BARF has a valuable role to play in an animal suffering from any form of anaemia because of the high levels of available iron in Beef Meat. (Note that all our products help with anaemia, but our Beef BARF is particularly valuable!)

Where we donít recommend our Beef BARF is in cases of a ĎBeef Allergy,í or where an animal is suffering from any sort of inflammatory or degenerative condition. While we strongly recommend our Dr. Bís Beef BARF for young, active and growing animals, which thrive on this flavour, it may be less suitable for older and/or sicker animals; suffering from problems such as arthritis, a skin condition, or cancer. In these cases, we suggest Dr. Bís Chicken, Pork and Lamb BARF Ė and in special circumstances Ė Dr. Bís Roo BARF.


Dr. Bís Pork BARF often proves an excellent choice in cases of skin or bowel allergy. Their high and balanced levels of polyunsaturated fats, is clearly an asset under these conditions. Like lamb, pork is a definite all rounder, although tending more to the white than the red side compared to lamb. This means it should be considered as part of any programme dealing with a degenerative disease process; the healthy pork fats and high quality pork protein can play a valuable role in combating bodily degeneration. If you have not tried Dr. Bís Pork BARF with your dog (or cat), do consider it, you might be pleasantly surprised at how quickly your dog (or cat), makes that Pork BARF Ďdisappearí and along with it, the disappearance (over time) of many health problems, particularly allergic problems.


Dr. Bís Lamb BARF is ideal for all life stages and it has been a Ďlife-saverí in many cases of arthritis, skin conditions and even cancer. The presence of high levels of the anti-cancer fatty acid known as Conjugated Linoleic Acid in the pasture fed lamb used for Dr. Bís Lamb BARF is a bonus and a special indication for using Dr. Bís Lamb BARF for Canine and Feline Cancer patients.

Dr. Bís Lamb BARF is an excellent food to consider where a dog (or even a cat) suffers from being underweight. However, the lamb flavour would definitely be avoided in cases of pancreatitis or where an animal has an allergy or reaction to lamb meat, lamb bones or lamb fat.


Beaten only by Dr. Bís Chicken BARF, this flavour is the second most popular flavour in Dr. Bís range of Genuine Aussie R.A.W. BARF for dogs. Combo is clearly a great all-round food for our dogs (yes Ė and cats!) as it contains a wide range of protein types (chicken, lamb, beef and pork). This makes Combo the ideal ĎFlavourí to purchase where Ė for whatever reason Ė the desire or the requirement is that only one flavour is to be stocked or used. That is why Combo is the chosen flavour for our 3 Kg BIG BARF ROLLS Ė the ideal choice for carers with large dogs or lots of dogs, which includes people running breeding or boarding kennels.


For many dogs (and cats!), this is an Ďexoticí flavour that they simply love! Rabbit is not dissimilar to chicken in that it is a white meat, with excellent anti-inflammatory properties and the additional characteristic of being highly attractive to most dogs (and cats!). Donít be put off by the smell (as some people are) because your dog thinks the aroma is just beautiful Ė even if you donít! If your dog (or cat) is a fussy eater, Dr. Bís Rabbit BARF may be the solution.

Important: Dr. Bís wide range of Ďflavours,í including rabbit, allows pet carers to rotate their pet through a wide range of different protein types; this helps to fulfil the Evolutionary principle of providing balance through a wide range of protein-source Evolutionary foods.


Kangaroo is of course, the only truly Ďwildí meat available on a large scale in Australia. As a Ďwild meat, it is truly organic, being in no way farmed. Perhaps its most valuable feature (and drawback in some circumstances) is its very low calorific value; Dr. Bís kangaroo BARF is practically fat free. This makes Dr. Bís Roo BARF highly valuable to any cat or dog that has a problem such as pancreatitis or obesity, or any other problem, which requires a balanced low fat diet. On the other hand, being low in fat makes Dr. Bís Roo BARF unsuitable as the solo diet for a young dog, a pregnant bitch or a lactating bitch. There is no problem of course, using Dr Bís Roo BARF for growing, pregnant or lactating canines as part of a rotating (with Dr. Bís other ĎFlavoursí and/or raw meaty bones) programme of nutrition. Combined with appropriate supplementation, Dr. Bís Roo BARF often proves highly valuable for dogs with a wide range of disease problems.
