The Barf Diet Book
Dr. Ian Billinghurst
The early chapters cover the sound scientific principles on which the evolutionary diet – the BARF diet – is based and detail the enormous health benefits available when animals are fed this way.
There is a chapter devoted to explaining supplementation. And another chapter detailing the concept of “complete and balanced”. This chapter is a must for people who believe processed pet foods fulfill the complete and balanced promise. There is a chapter devoted to the difficult question of feeding bones and the fear of bacteria in the BARF DIET.
In the second half of the book, there are recipes and other highly relevant and practical information to assist in the home production of BARF diets for both dogs and cats. Included in this section, there is a chapter on “Trouble-shooting” and one on “Switching to BARF.” This is the short practical book on BARF that so many BARFers have asked for.
