SAMPLE WEEK B.A.R.F. FEEDING SCHEDULE

This is an example of an optimal rotation between different animal proteins on a B.A.R.F diet. Vegetables, fruits, and supplements can easily be mixed into the ground meat mixture. There are many different ways you can do a raw food diet (for example, mixing in a bit of organ meat with each meal or making one entire meal offal for the week), so don’t become a zealot about following any one guide!

*As a side note: It’s up to you how many times you’d like to feed your dog a day. Most owners feed their dog two meals, but there are quite a few who say their dog is content with one meal. Puppies will need to be fed more often, with 3-4 times a day being a good rule of thumb.
