Benefits of the BARF diet

Feeding 100% natural and raw food is the best choice of nutrition.

In addition to not containing any harmful additives, all nutrients are preserved in raw food, while cooking or any thermal treatment of food changes its physical and chemical properties - proteins coagulate and become less biologically available, many amino acids are destroyed. Proteins altered by cooking are difficult to digest and often become the cause of allergies.


In raw meat, active cellular enzymes are responsible for breaking down complex cell structures and molecules (proteins, complex carbohydrates, fats) into their simple constituent parts - amino acids, simple carbohydrates, fatty acids. Food broken down in this way is extremely acceptable for absorption.

Likewise, the role of these enzymes in digestion is very important because they reduce the body's need to secrete a large amount of its own enzymes to break down food. The most sensitive enzymes contained in raw food begin to be lost already at a temperature of 37 °C.

Any vitamins and minerals destroyed or changed during the industrial thermal processing of food cannot be added to the food afterwards, without being as biologically available to the body as when the food is raw.

BARF diet successfully controls:

Body mass

BARF is very suitable for dogs with obesity problems.
Namely, obesity often occurs as a result of an inadequate ratio of proteins and energy. If the food contains a lot of carbohydrates and little protein, the animal will consume the amount of food it needs to meet its needs for protein and essential amino acids and a large amount of the carbohydrates found in that food. Excess carbohydrates will be converted into fat stores. In addition to the amount of proteins, their origin and digestibility are also important, poorly digestible proteins, poor in essential amino acids, will also turn into fat stores and increase food intake.


Food Allergies and Atopic Dermatitis

In VON BARF food, there are no grains or additives, which are the most common allergens. In addition, raw animal protein rarely causes allergies.

BARF diet has proven to be extremely successful in controlling existing allergies. The effect of this diet is visible over a longer period because it strengthens the immune system and its ability to fight allergies. Sometimes results are seen immediately, and sometimes it takes a longer period for the body to strengthen and successfully control immune reactions.


VON BARF food is an excellent source of glucosamine and chondroitin, substances essential for maintaining joint health and treating degenerative changes in the joints. Ground cartilage found in VON BARF is an extremely rich natural source of these substances. Ground bone and cartilage are an optimal source of nutrients needed for building a healthy and resilient musculoskeletal system.

Tartar and Bad Breath

Raw food does not stick to teeth.
Food with unsatisfactory consistency tends to stick to teeth, creating a perfect environment for the development of various bacteria. Consequently, gingivitis occurs – inflammation of the gums, extremely unpleasant breath, formation of dental plaque and tartar, and possible metastasis of bacterial inflammation to any part of the body (e.g., heart valves, kidneys, liver).

Digestive Problems (Gastritis, Pancreatitis, Enteritis, etc.)

Raw food is the best source of proteins that the carnivorous organism will easily digest. Enzymes contained in raw food reduce the body's need to produce its own digestive enzymes. Beef tripe, one of the ingredients of VON BARF, is a rich source of good digestive flora. Tripe is also a rich source of chlorophyll, a green plant pigment that has been found to accelerate the body's detoxification processes, act antimicrobially, strengthen the immune system, influence the control and destruction of malignant cells, and have the ability to bind heavy metals. It has a positive effect on wound healing, both on the skin surface and on mucous membranes (a positive effect on the healing of gastric ulcer mucosa has been established).

VON BARF does not contain preservatives, flavor enhancers, colorants, or any other additives, nor does it contain starch, which is extremely difficult for carnivores to digest.

Inflammation of Anal Sacs

The optimal consistency of stool ensures natural emptying of anal sacs, thereby reducing the possibility of inflammation of anal sacs. Due to the bone content in VON BARF, the stool is of a firmer consistency, but there is no fear of intestinal blockage or damage to the intestinal mucosa because the bone is ground into a paste.


Therefore, it's not surprising that animals fed with BARF:

  • are healthier
  • have more energy
  • have a better appetite (dogs love BARF)
  • have healthy and beautiful fur
  • are in excellent condition
  • have well-developed muscles and bones
  • have smaller and firmer stools
  • are more obedient and focused during training
  • are more fertile
  • live longer
