“Raw Dog Food For Beginners” Raw Feeding Guide

Are you a dog owner thinking about raw feeding? Are you curious about the benefits and best ways of switching to a BARF diet? Raw dog food has become more popular for dogs over the last several years, with many dog owners witnessing tremendous health improvements in their canine family members. However, whilst the benefits of raw dog food may be obvious, dog owners wanting to make the switch sometimes struggle with the best way of transitioning to a raw BARF diet for dogs.

“Raw Dog Food For Beginners” Raw Feeding Guide

This guide is intended to make the switch easier, highlighting the details of raw dog food for beginners. You’ll learn key information about feeding raw, such as what a raw diet consists of, which foods to avoid, and the benefits of switching your dog to a raw food diet.

The history of raw feeding

The history of raw feeding dates back to the beginning of time, or at least when dogs began to exist. In the wild, dogs predominantly eat raw meat to survive, along with small amounts of vegetation, such as grasses, herbs, and certain seasonal fruits [1]. This way of eating has allowed dogs to thrive as a species for thousands of years, and they were doing just fine without our help. The earliest domesticated dogs enjoyed a diet of human food scraps, often given as a reward for assisting their companions in their hunting practices.

The commercialisation of dog food stripped away a natural diet by cooking ingredients into pellets that are unrecognisable as real food, and adding preservatives to keep them shelf stable. In the early 1990s, veterinarian Dr. Ian Billinghurst wondered why the dogs he saw were so unhealthy, and decided to experiment with feeding his own dogs the foods they were fed when he was a child: raw, meaty bones and uncooked human scraps. After seeing a night and day difference in the health of his dogs, he began offering this information to his clients, who saw the same success with their own canine family members.

Upon becoming certified in canine nutrition and reviewing many scientific case studies with his veterinary colleagues, Dr. Billinghurst authored the book “Give Your Dog a Bone” in 1993 to provide comprehensive information on raw dog food for beginners [2]. He is also responsible for the BARF raw dog food acronym so often spoken about when discussing feeding dogs a raw diet.

What is the BARF feeding model?

  • 70% muscle meat, fat, ligaments + sinew
  • 5% liver
  • 5% offal, other secreting organ meats
  • 10% raw edible bone
  • 10% vegetation and fruit matter

What is the BARF raw dog food diet for dogs?

The term BARF is often used when talking about feeding dogs a raw diet, and it technically has two meanings. The original acronym stood for Bones and Raw Food, which is the term Dr. Billinghurst is responsible for creating. Over the years, raw feeding has evolved, and so has the meaning of BARF. Many raw feeders now use BARF to stand for Biologically Appropriate Raw Food. Both interpretations of the acronym are essentially the same as bones and raw food is a species appropriate diet for a dog.

Ultimately, whether you call it “BARF” or “raw feeding”, the aim is simply to feed real, unprocessed food to dogs. It is our belief that all pets deserve real, wholefoods, just as much as our children do, and that which we aim to eat ourselves. The huge school dinner campaign led by TV Chef Jamie Oliver was of a similar vein but for children. Processed food just doesn’t provide the level of nutrition needed for our canine family members to thrive. Raw feeding isn’t a new trend or craze, it’s simply feeding dogs in a way that they evolved eating.

Traditionally, you may have been faced with the task of splitting beef ribs, or cutting up offal and raw green tripe chunks for hungry dogs, who devoured them with gusto. These days you can buy ready-made raw meals with minced bone and offal content, meaning even vegetarians can easily feed real food, without having to handle the meat in its original state.

What are the elements of a natural diet for dogs?

It’s common to assume that raw meat is all that’s necessary when considering feeding raw food to dogs, as is the confusion of what a raw diet actually consists of. There are multiple elements that go into a balanced raw diet, which we’ve detailed for you below, read on for a quick look at the ingredients that should go into your dog’s dinner:

Varied proteins for maximum benefits

Proteins and amino acids are essential for every cell of a dog’s body. Animal sources of protein are much more nutritious and beneficial than plant proteins. Dogs need at least 10 essential amino acids in their diet, or health issues will occur. Animal proteins provide these amino acids in a highly digestible form. Each type of meat will offer a different array of nutrients and protein forms, so it’s advisable to feed as much variety as your dog is tolerable to.

For example, lean proteins such as chicken and turkey are excellent for building muscle whilst being easier on digestion. Fattier meats like beef and lamb are chock full of essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, all supportive of bone, muscle, skin, and coat health.

Fish is another great example of a healthy protein, being a fantastic source of Omega 3 healthy fats, vitamin D, and essential fatty acids to support joint, gut, and brain health.

Of course, variety is key when feeding raw food to dogs, as it ensures that they benefit from all the nutrients that each protein has to offer. For a truly balanced diet that gives your dog the right number of proteins in equal measures, alternate the meats, and indeed cuts of meat, you give throughout the week or month as much as possible. In addition to giving them a great balance, this variation can limit fussiness.

Bone for healthy digestion and dental hygiene

Bone is another essential element of the BARF diet for dogs, as it provides key minerals like calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, and naturally aids in the digestive process. Whilst the 10% ground bone found in ProDog’s raw meals is a great way to ensure your dog has access to the health benefits it provides, it’s also a smart idea to allow dogs to chew on raw, meaty bones when you can, such as our range of bones and chew treats. These aid in dogs’ dental health as a natural tooth cleaner, as well as helping to combat boredom while simultaneously delivering the essential nutrients to support your dog’s health.

Offal is a rich source of nutrients

Offal is the name given to the organ meats of animals, such as the liver, kidneys, spleen and pancreas. These organ meats contain the highest concentration of nutrients of any animal product, and hence are often referred to as nature’s multi-vitamin. Offal is a nutritional powerhouse for your dog and is loaded with vitamins, minerals, amino and fatty acids, and is exactly what a dog would feed on in the wild.

Offal should ideally make up around 10% of a raw diet, which can easily be achieved with pre-packed formulas, such as our raw food with offal range. Not all dogs can tolerate offal, however, so check with your vet if your canine friend has pre-existing breed restrictions or health concerns.

Green tripe promotes good gut health

Whilst not technically an essential element of a BARF diet for dogs, green tripe offers tremendous gut health benefits and is well worth considering as part of your dog’s routine. Green tripe, or the stomach of a cow/sheep, offers natural pre and probiotics, digestive enzymes which can aid in digestion, and promote an increase in healthy gut bacteria. We recommend grass-fed tripe like our green tripe for dogs to avoid any potential allergy flare-ups from grain-fed cows. However, if you have an itchy dog, or one that has pollen and grass allergies, then tripe should be fed with caution.

Fruits and vegetables

Dogs benefit from plants, too, and adding these to their raw diet can offer a multitude of additional benefits. Fibre from fruits and vegetables aids in their digestion by providing prebiotics, which are fuel for good gut bacteria. They provide extra vitamins and minerals, and importantly antioxidants and polyphenols, which are lacking from a purely meat based diet.

  • A true species appropriate raw diet should include a variety of animal and botanical ingredients which all work together to provide the maximum nutritional benefits.

Some vegetables and berries are included in ProDog complete meals. Discover more about  what dogs can eat in our comprehensive A-Z guide.

Give them whole eggs

Eggs are a fantastic source of nutrients for raw feeding dogs, providing complete proteins, vitamins and minerals, and choline when fed raw. Their shells contain around 40% calcium as well as collagen, glucosamine, and chondroitin; all excellent for joint and bone health. Most dogs can benefit greatly from the addition of eggs to their diet, and even if they are sensitive to chicken eggs, quail or duck can usually be tolerated. Offer them whole if your dog can handle them, or simply mix in with their ProDog BARF raw dog food.

Depending on the size of your dog, feed them a few times a week with their main meal or as a treat.

Foods to avoid

Many commercial dog foods include ingredients that are hard for dogs to digest, or simply provide no nutritional value. Ingredients like grains, wheat, corn, soy, and any form of preservative are not necessary for dogs and can even cause them harm. Needless to say, it’s best to avoid these when considering the best ingredients for your dog’s diet. Learn more in our useful A-Z library of food your dog can and can’t eat.

Why is raw feeding dogs the best approach?

Feeding raw food to dogs is the most natural and effective way to ensure they receive the nutritional benefits that nature intended for them. Mimicking the diet that dogs would eat in the wild serves their health and wellbeing in numerous ways.

Raw meat based food consists of bioavailable ingredients that are easily digested, providing dogs with the key elements that their bodies need to function properly and thrive.
A raw food diet avoids ingredients that dogs find hard to digest (such as grains, wheat etc.), and includes those that dogs were naturally intended to eat (such as raw meat, bone, and plant fibre). Therefore, raw feeding reduces the potential for health conditions such as allergies and digestive issues, which are often caused by imbalanced gut health and malnutrition from inappropriate ingredients.

The canine body is naturally designed to eat and digest raw meat based food, just as they have in the wild for millennia. This makes raw feeding ideal for avoiding unnecessary health issues and promoting healthy, happy dogs.

The benefits for your dog

The health benefits for dogs eating BARF raw dog food are numerous. Skin issues such as itching and irritation are alleviated, allergies and their various symptoms disappear, and bad breath becomes much more pleasant due to improved dental health and digestion.

Gut health, the root of many health problems, also improves from feeding raw, as the digestive tract restores and renews itself to become a more balanced and functional environment [3]. Even behaviour can be positively affected by raw feeding; the list of benefits is almost endless.

If you would like to learn more, I go into more detail in our main article on the benefits of raw dog food.

We Believe every dog has the right to experience the raw food effect

We Believe <span>every dog has the right to experience the raw food effect</span>

Shinier coat and
healthier skin

Our raw food for dogs is high in quality digestible protein and provide essential amino acids, fatty acids, enzymes and many other healthy ingredients that benefit the skin and fur. The result—a glossy coat that is the envy of the neighbourhood.

Show more

More stable
energy

We include minimal sugars and starches in our recipes, which means the sudden influx of glucose and insulin from these ingredients that dictate energy slumps and spikes, don’t occur. As a result, energy remains much more stable.

Show more

Increased vitality in
older dogs

Feeding raw foods to older dogs is beneficial in many ways. Natural ingredients are rich in antioxidants, minimise water retention and inflammation, and deliver natural joint support, all of which help older dogs to maintain energy and vitality.

Show more

Better
digestion

Our ingredients are biologically appropriate for a dog’s digestive system. Packed with natural enzymes, raw is digested much more efficiently, minimising digestive issues, gas and bloating.

Show more

Improved mobility &
ease of movement

We include balanced ratios of bone and collagen in our raw food for dogs, making them a natural source of calcium, phosphorus, glucosamine, and chondroitin. These nutrients contribute to joint health by reducing inflammation and strengthening ligaments for improved mobility.

Easier weight
control

By formulating our raw food recipes using high protein, moderate fat and low carbohydrate ingredients, we ensure ProDog meals deliver a dog’s most important energy sources in perfectly balanced ratios. As such, weight management improves naturally.

Show more

Reduction of allergies
and sensitivities

Our raw food meals are naturally hypoallergenic because we include zero ingredients known to trigger allergy symptoms, such as grains, gluten, fillers, synthetic colourings, and preservatives. Meanwhile, the gut is the root of allergy symptoms. A diet rich in nutrients that nourish the gut, such as natural glutamine and gentle food on the digestive system, can drastically reduce allergy symptoms.

Show more

Improved
physique

Healthy muscle tone, definition, posture, and shape all improve with a quality raw food diet. We expertly formulate our recipes to deliver optimal protein levels, thereby providing the amino acids necessary to promote muscle density and healthy muscle gain whilst also supporting the reduction of excess weight caused by fluid retention or unnecessary fat stores.

Show more

Reinforced immune
system

A raw food diet contains live bacteria and enzymes that support effective digestion; this means the abundance of nutrients in the fresh, natural ingredients are easily absorbed and transported to the cells and systems that need them, including the immune system. ProDog raw food provides enriching, immune-boosting nutrition in every meal.

Show more

Reduced hyperactivity
& behavioural issues

The gut and brain are connected, and a dog’s food can either nourish or damage the gut. Because a natural raw food diet helps to maintain harmony in the gut, it can positively influence the delicate balance of neurotransmitters sending signals to the brain that impact mood, cognition and behaviour.

Surveys show that owners describe their pets as friendlier, more interactive, sociable, and affectionate once they switch to a raw diet.

Show more

Fresher breath and
better dental hygiene

Our barf food for dogs contains minimal starches and sugars, providing no fuel for dental plaque to thrive. Adding raw bones and natural chews improves dental health further. The chewing action required to gnaw natural chews eliminates plaque and bacteria damaging to teeth.

Show more

Smaller, firmer, less
odour stools

Dogs create less waste when fed a raw diet because most of their food is fully digested and utilised. Bone firms stools, which makes them easy to pick up. This firmer consistency also helps the natural expression of anal glands, preventing them from filling up and becoming inflamed.

How to switch to raw

At ProDog Raw, we’re huge advocates of feeding dogs a species-appropriate, raw food diet. The health benefits and natural consequences of feeding dogs the way nature intended is hard to ignore, which is why we strive to make this a possibility for dogs everywhere. Follow our switching advice below.

For younger, generally healthy dogs, switching can be as simple as replacing their old food with their new, raw food diet. If digestion issues present, additional gut support such as our Digest supplement or Probiotic paste can assist their digestion while they adapt to the change.

Older dogs or dogs with health concerns including digestive issues should be switched to raw food more gradually, ideally over a period of 7-10 days. Simply replace a small amount of their current food with the raw, gradually increasing each day until they’re fully transitioned. Again, more details on this topic can be found in our comprehensive guide to switching your dog’s food to raw.

Our full range of raw dog food offers convenient, natural, well-balanced meals for dogs of all breeds and ages (including those with various health issues), making the healthiest dog food diet accessible for all. Try our many available options today. Your dog will thank you!
