How to prepare grain-free BARF-meals for dogs

For a balanced and species-appropriate diet according to the BARF-method, you should regularly feed your dog not only pure muscle meat, but also offal and raw meaty bones. A good nutritional plan for a grain-free diet looks roughly as follows: 50 % pure muscle meat with a fat content of 15 - 25 %, 20 % rumen and leaf tripe, 15% mixed offal (liver, kidney, heart, lungs and spleen) and 15 % raw meaty bones. Natural supplements should be fed in variable proportions as needed to fully meet the nutritional requirements of your dog.

The animal ingredients should make up about 80 % of the total BARF-meal. The other 20 % is made up of the plant-based components with vegetables (75 %) and fruit (25 %). The plant-based components provide important nutrients and mimics the pre-digested stomach contents of natural prey. In order for the dog to absorb all the nutrients it contains, however, it is absolutely necessary to cook or mash the vegetables and fruit before feeding them.

BARF-meals with cereals – how it's done

Not as with the BARF-diets for cats, it is possible to feed a certain amount of cereals to dogs. In this case, however, an adjustment of the above-mentioned division must be made: the proportion of animal components is reduced to 70 %, the plant-based components are increased to 30 %.

The animal portion of a BARF-meal with grain should consist of 50 % pure muscle meat, 20 % raw meaty bones, 15 % rumen or leaf tripe and 15 % mixed offal. The plant-based portion is divided into 40 % cereals, 40 % vegetables and 20 % fruit. Just like all other plant-based ingredients, the cereal should only be served cooked or very finely pureed.  

BARF is easier than you thought

No matter which option you choose, don't go mad about the composition of the BARF-meals for your dog. It is not necessary to feed all components in the right amount every day. The best thing is to put together a monthly plan and make sure that during this period all components are fed in the right amount. In this way, your dog's nutritional needs are met and you don't have to re-calculate, weigh and portion the food every day. As an alternative to mixing the ingredients yourself, we also offer ready-to-serve BARF complete menus.
