I don't BARF feed NOW, but have in the past. My dogs did very well on a combination diet of BARF, home cooked and good quality kibble. Four years ago I got very ill and was in the hospital for 2 weeks and pretty much out of commission for several months afterward, and BARF feeding was just too difficult for me at that time so I quit. With 9 dogs, unless you have a good source for the raw meaty bones, it's just too expensive (chicken backs and necs were 89 cents/lb the last time I bought them). Now they just get a good quality kibble, with occasional doggie stew or some yummy chicken backs or necks. My co-manager on Beagle Bay got me interested in BARF feeding, she had a German Shepherd who was allergic to every dog food she tried her on - but she did very well on a raw diet. My dogs did well on it.
