Raw Food For Dogs
Does anyone know anything about the BARF diet for dogs, I have read about it on the internet and heard it from friends but would like to know if anyone feeds their dogs raw chicken and stuff. App its VERY good for them and their overall well-being is improved dramatically. IT makes sense as they are dogs.

I cannot say this too many times: you cannot recreate in the kitchen a balanced diet that reputable dog food companies have spent multiple billions of dollars to create. Many conditions linked to certain deficiency states of the natural diets are now prevented by additives in good quality commercial diets.
