The BARF Diet is very much a book for the beginning BARFer.  However it has also been written for vets, breeder, trainers, pet owners or any other person seeking to either understand or expand their knowledge of evolutionary diets for our companion animals, the cat and the dog.  In other words, it has much new, interesting and useful information for the experienced BARFer as well as serving as a primer for the uninititated.

The BARF Diet is the third book in a series dealing with feeding pets their healthy evolutionary diet.  It is the first book in the series that deals with feeding both cats and dogs.  It contains important background material from my first two books, together with much new information.

The word BARF stand for "Biologically Appropriate Raw Food", or "Bones And Raw Food".  The BARF diet presented in this book is a simple, practical and commonsense alternative to the health destroying processed pet foods.

This book starts out by providing the reader with the sound scientific principles on which the evolutionary diet - the BARF diet - is based and outlines the enormous health benefits available for any animal fortunate enough to be fed that way.  At the same time, readers will appreciate why feeding grain based pet foods is so dangerous to the long-term health of modern pets.

In the second half of the book, the reader is presented with 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 is a Chapter on "Troubleshooting" and one on "Switching to BARF".

Once again the basic inescapable theme of this book is that animals are much healthier when fed their evolutionary diet.  A diet based on whole raw foods.  The diet they are designed to eat by a long process of evolution.
