While there are many benefits to using the internet, there are also some downsides.
Nutrient deficiencies. You can be sure that your dog is receiving the right nutrition. This balance is more difficult if you follow the BARF diet. You must pay attention to your nutritional balance.
Viral infections can be caused by unreliable foods and rancid foods. Use high-quality meats and freeze them to avoid this. This diet is not recommended by many vets.
Dogs can swallow small pieces of bone by biting them. This can cause constipation (there is an anti-constipation food), obstruction, or perforation that needs surgery. Although raw bones are considered more dangerous than cooked, the risk that dogs swallowing sharp bits is still possible. These dangers can be avoided by mashing the dog food. Dogs on this diet are also at risk of developing pancreatitis or gastroenteritis.
Broken teeth, in addition to gum problems are a serious problem. Because of their sharp edges, hard bones can cause severe damage to a dog’s teeth and mouth. Teeth can become too worn down and even be lost.
