Dirty Jobs, with Mike Rowe on Nat. Geo.

Company in California makes BARF food----from cows stomachs. The best stomachs---according to the company owner--- still have grass/beginning feces in them. The company grinds up the stomachs and packages the results.

Bump to get it off the top.

That's not typical BARF food although I bet dogs LOVE it.

What we buy is pretty much whole-animal ground up - meat, organs, bones. Duck, chicken etc.

Dog's droppings are not sloppy and not even stinky - when her buddy who's a kibble-fed dog comes over, who's tiny next to her, she poops MORE than the big dog, and droppings are FOUL.

My dog has been on the BARF diet for exactly one week and he is pooping much less, although it is still quite smelly as it consists of 98% carnivorous material. Herbivores' feces are much less offensive in my opinion.

I've been feeding him my own combination of raw meats, bones, organs etc. I had previously fed him a raw diet that was manufactured by another company - I think it was called California naturals - and it is definitely cheaper to do it myself.
