The BARF diet is supposed to be one of the best, and more along the lines of what nature intended. Dogs and cats are carnivores, which means they eat MEAT. They don't need it cooked to eat it.
Dogs are carnivores, but are also opportunistic omnivores, which means they can and will eat grain and vegetable products along with meat. Doesn't mean they have to, just that they will.
Cats are what is known as obligate carnivores, which means they can't digest any type of plant nutrition, and have to get their nutritional needs met from meat, organ meat, and animal bones.
So your parents are right, and your friends are wrong.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
