There are some raw feeders that debate over which style is best to feed. We have no desire to debate this matter. It is our opinion that, whichever style you choose, it is considerably better than feeding a dry, nutrient-depleted diet.
The two forms of raw food diets you can feed your pet are called The Prey-Model and BARF diet. BARF stands for Biologically Appropriate Raw Food, also called Bones And Raw Food. Prey Model and B.A.R.F. diets are both essentially outstanding choices. Both diets focus on not feeding your dog filler ingredients, such as corn and wheat as well as raw meat.
With the Prey Model there are a couple of variants. One of these variants is to feed whole prey and nothing else like a whole raw chicken, or leg of a lamb, whole rabbit etc. The other alternative is to feed hunks of meat with some bone, plus liver, other organs, and eggs.
First suggested by Australian veterinarian, Dr. Ian Billinghurst, the B.A.R.F. diet usually can be fed ground or whole, consisting of meat and bone, liver, organ meats, eggs and fish, pureed veggies and a small amount of fruit. The BARF diet is believed to be more sensible for today’s dogs. Vegetables, fruits and supplements are important for them as well as meat. On the other hand, cats are still carnivores and can live without vegetables and fruits.
