The title "What Should Your Doggie Eat Today?" can be put or not?

Wink if the book refers to BARF diet then it surely should be here, but if it discusses other issues then you should post it under a new subject line, so that others will find the "right" book easily.

Hi,

my furkids are already on BARF but I would love to learn more about it. Where can I get the book?

It's about time such a book can be found here. When I tell anyone what I'm feeding my dogs they give me a look. Some even ask if it makes my dogs vicious and if they "thirst" for blood. Even most vets haven't heard of BARF. Unsure

Fantastic, I love to hear that someone else in Malaysia is not only following this natural way of feeding a dog but also wants to learn more about it.

“Switching to Raw” is more a practical guide on preparation and feeding schedule, but I don’t know if the book is available in Malaysia – I got it in the USA.

“Give your dog a bone” is probably one of the best books when you want to learn more about BARF and its benefits for the dog – all from the vet point of view.

I guess that most of them don't like to discuss openly.

Understandably, it is a difficult decision. The meat has to be fresh and that is already a challenge here in Malaysia. The meaty bones, the lean meat, the veggies and the offal should be free of any pesticides, hormones or antibiotics, and that is another difficulty to find and if you can find it, then it is costly.

Most of the dog owners are having to live on a tight budget and if you don't then you are lucky (and it would be rude to show that to others openly, right?). All of us have to survive a less dog friendly environment and last but not least have to go to work for a living and that for long hours daily.

Not much time left for the search of the above stated quality food and not much time left to learn about the BARF diet.

We could certainly organize all the BARF feeding dog lovers to join forces in hunting the best deals, quality farmers, etc.

Maybe, we could issue a new thread in the Poll section to find out if other dog owners are interested?

Hi,

A while back, there were quite a few members here very interested in BARF but I think they're busy & are no longer active members. We' just discuss it openly..asked plenty of questions..had suggestions..etc.

"Most of the dog owners are having to live on a tight budget and if you don't then you are lucky (and it would be rude to show that to others openly, right?)"

u hv a point there...but...it didn't feel so back then coz most ppl seem to be interested..could b just me.

That would be a good idea..

Here are some older threads(which I hv benefited alot frm):

Re: [RealityDreamer] Books for BARF diet [In reply to] Can't Post

Personally, I decided to feed BARF because the risk with kibbles is to high (and the cost for the vet) with to much stinky poop in the garden and the ever present risk of bloat.



With reference to all the previous posts, it was opinion sharing and exchange of personal experiences.

Anyone tried to compile orders from several members? Anyone negotiated bulk order prices for meat and/or veggies? Anyone tried to establish supply contract?



I try on my very personal small scale by buying in larger quantities and freeze the food packed in daily portions.

It might not be the healthiest way to feed my dog but it is certainly better then any kibble food ever could be and it is fast, easy and manageable. My kitchen gets “dirty” every fortnight only.

Although im feeding my dogs with Canidae kibbles now, but im very intersted abt BARF formula, i might not able to feed them frequently but once a while i hope i can provide them with that.

Do u mind to provide ur own dog's timetables/schedules of eating wat daily? Thanks. Smile

Well, this I did in the "nutrition" postings.
Personally, I would NOT switch once in a while. The reason, the switch in food might cause loose poop and similar reaction. Switching should be done gratually, same as you would do when switching from one kibble food to another. One day fasting and then introduce the new food works for most dogs, but owners might have a problem with this. Wink

fasting is the most powerful tool in health care. It works perfectly well with everyone. The clear advantage is that you will see the dogs reaction on the new diet without any mess. Secondly, your dog will be less hesitating to try any new food when he went thru a day without any food.
