Raw diets are gaining in popularity. Sled dogs and racing greyhounds have long used raw food diets. In 1993, Australian veterinarian Ian Billinghurst proposed the idea of extending those feeding practices to the household pet. He suggested a diet known as the BARF diet, which stands for Biologically Appropriate Raw Food or Bones and Raw Food.
Based on what dogs ate before they were domesticated, Billinghurst suggested that adult dogs would thrive on a diet that was derived from evolutionary food sources: Bones and scraps, both raw and meaty. He argued that commercial grain-based pet foods harm a dog's health.
The most bio-available nutrition in the form that dogs' bodies were designed to absorb is found in raw dog food. It has anti-inflammatory properties, which will help alleviate allergy symptoms and improve your dog's overall health. Your dog's ability to fight allergies without medication increases with immune system strength.
