Barf Meal Plans

Examples of BARF Meal Plans


  1. Golden Retriever - 55# - RMB meal - 1# chicken backs, or 12 chicken necks, or 8 chicken wings, or 2 beef ribs plus an egg or  yogurt. You can feed lamb, but it is rich so don't use it in the beginning. Even after 3 years only feed lamb  that you trim and only when you will be around to let them out more  often. Lamb riblets (I think in Australia they are called lamb flaps) have soft very chewable bones and this is what to use if you can get it.   Occasionally (like once every 2 weeks),  substitute fish - either canned mackerel or sardines as many dogs will only eat these. If yours eats other fishes then serve 'em up.
  2. Offal  - Offal (or organ meat, e.g. heart, kidney, liver, tripe, etc...) is usually mixed in with the veggie meal, because many dogs do not like the taste (some do).  Just be careful not to feed too much, too quickly, as offal is very rich and too much will cause loose stools.  Offal can be fed once or twice a week!
  3. Veggie meal - This is for 1 meal not a full day's worth - 1/4 calves liver or an egg and  puree these veggies for about 3/4  cup worth.   Mix and match veggies do not try to use all these at the same time - carrots, turnip, parsnip, green beans, yellow  squash, zucchini, dark green lettuces, celery - add a little - very little - of either spinach, kale, turnip greens, or broccoli. Now and then if you have a piece of cauliflower toss that in too.
  4. To most meals add 1 teaspoon of oil (cold pressed flaxseed, or safflower or vegetable or olive but usually flaxseed for Omegas).  To each meal add 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast (Vitamin Bs),  1/4 teaspoon kelp, 1/4 teaspoon alfalfa powder. Also add Vitamin C (about 2000mg) but you need to start off slow and increase a little at a time so as to not upset the tummy.   A golden might get 200mg Vitamin E 1x/day
  5. Poodle - 35# - gets exactly half of the above recipe - if very active give a little more than 1/2 of the  above. Halve the vitamins of yeast, kelp, alfalfa and remember Vitamin C 100mg Vitamin E/day
  6. Cocker Spaniel 20# - gets 1/4 of above recipe - adjust to each dog's activity level and metabolism.  1/4 the vitamins of yeast, kelp, alfalfa and remember the Vitamin C, Vitamin. E -  "most" of a 100mg capsule
  7. Chihuahua 8# - very active little guys - 1 1/2 chicken wings, or 4 chicken necks or about 2/3 of 1/2 a chicken back (break it in half and then take a piece off).  For the veggie meal, which is 1 out of 2 meals a day, use about 1/4 cup of veggie mix with a little liver (about a square inch) or some egg or a tablespoon plain yogurt.  Meat - for 1 meal - a little less than 1/4 cup of beef heart or gizzards.  Remember a few drops of the Vitamin E and a little Vitamin C
