                             BARF DIET  or RAW DIET

What do you feed your American Blue Nose Pitbulls? I feed 80% Raw Meat, 10% Raw (Meaty) Bones and 10% Organs mixed with premium quality kibble and human grade supplements.


Can I feed just raw meat? Of course, but never start 100% out on meat right away. Some might disagree, but I always start with kibble and a little meat. Then increase meat amount and decrease kibble amount. Going too fast can cause diarrhea, gas and vomiting, Especially when feeding organs. However each dog is different but I would suggest giving your dogs body time to adjust.

Can I feed my Blue Nose Puppie, American Bully, American Pitbull Terrier fruits and vegetables? Yes, you can feed vegetables but it's not necessary. They can sometimes be somewhat beneficial but they are mainly used as a healthy filler aside from dry kibble. Broccoli (folic acid, calcium, fiber, vitamin C and beta carotene) Celery (calcium, potassium, phosphorus, sodium and iron), Spinach (x2 iron than any other green, also rich in antioxidants and fiber.) Fruit wise, I feed bananas, apples with no seeds and pumpkin with no seeds as a treat. Pumpkin is a great alternative for weight gain. Do not feed too much.

How much organs should I feed my American Bully? 10% Organs. Liver is concentrated with substantial quantities of other vitamins like A, D, E and K. You have to make sure not to feed too much liver, it should only be fed in very small quantities daily.

Should I cook the food instead? Well, that ruins the whole point of "raw diet". Never cook raw diet, ever. Dogs are not humans. Cooking the raw meat strips it down of the essential vitamins and minerals. (Calcium, phosphorous and magnesium, etc.)

Raw Diet = Salmonella? Dogs are not as likely to be affected by it as a human. Dogs have a shorter digestive cycle and some other physiological differences in their digestion than people do. Yes, they can get salmonella but it's VERY unlikely in a healthy dog. If your dog does get salmonella - chances are it was a compromised immune system before ingestion. Do not blame Raw Diet, talk to your breeder first.

What type of kibble should I feed? I strongly suggest any premium quality kibble. Evo, Canidae, Taste of the Wild, Blue Buffalo, Orijen, Wellness. Even Diamond, Exceed, Nutro, Kirkland, etc. is fine especially when feeding with raw. But I cannot stress this enough - STAY AWAY 'commercial' or 'grocery brand' junk food. OlRoy, Alpo, Kibbles n' Bits for example.

What supplements do you use? While many do not agree with usage of supplements - I use only human grade supplements or supplements that are vet recommended. Stay away from supplements with questionable ingredients. I recommend Dyne, NuVet, K9 Puppy Gold and Show Stopper. While feeding raw diet is all you need - an extra boost doesn't hurt. Remember though - "The BEST supplement is GENETICS."
