    I currently buy the premade barf to which I add, oils, seameal (bone meal if the barf doesnt’ conatin bone).

    If I were to start making the Barf on my own. What is the ratio? I’ve heard the meat/bone ratio should be 75% of the diet. What is the exact bone to meat ratio? What is the Offal ratio and veggie ratio?

    I got the dvd “Eat, drink and wag your tail” it was a great dvd I’d recommend it to everyone especially people who aren’t familiar with Barf.

    I’ve been looking for some books aside from Billinghurst, I don’t need a book that compares Barf to kibble I already am well aware of the differences. What I need are some recipes to follow. Alot of the books reviews I’ve read on Amazon, that have recipes in them have too much grains in the recipes and some I’ve seen do not have proper ratios of meat and bone. I know if you have too much meat then you have too much phosphorus and not enough calcium from the bone and the same if you have too much bone etc.

    Do you know of any good books that have recipes in them?

    Hi Dri-

    I’m glad that you enjoyed the DVD. My diet recommendations are simple. Feed the freshest food (organic is best) in wide variety. That being said, I don’t have any numbers for exact proportions because I don’t believe that they are necessary (as long as you’re doing variety). Proportions become important when you’re feeding unvarying meals.

    I guess if I had to recommend 1 book it would be Kymythy Schultze’s “Natural Nutrition for Dogs and Cats: The Ultimate Diet”. This link [url]http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1561706361/ref=sib_dp_pop_ex/102-9037197-4412961?%5Fencoding=UTF8&p=S00O#reader-link[/url][url]
    will bring you to an excerpt (if you have an Amazon account).

    You can also find a lot of excellent info in my diet area. Some of the breeder links, e.g. to Christie Keith’s site and Daybreak Aussies are *excellent*.

    No matter what you do specifically with Ryker’s diet, have FUN!

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
