BARF ration calculator
Here you can easily create an individual Barf ration according to the prey animal scheme (80:20 or 70:30) with just a few clicks. All you have to do is enter your dog's (ideal) weight and specify the amount of food. Usually - depending on activity and size - between 2% and 4% of the body weight. You also have the option to choose whether you want to feed bones and/or carbohydrates. You will find information about the different food ingredients at the bottom of the page.
The calculator also includes supplements, in addition to oils and cod liver oil, two of our Barf products(more info). This is a non-binding recommendation. You are welcome to use other supplements, in which case simply ignore the last line in the calculator.
Please note that the feeding plan is for adult and healthy dogs.
Feed cost calculator
In addition to the feed plan, you can also calculate your feed costs for your animal. To do this, simply click on Feed costs, select "Show costs" and then enter the respective kilo prices of your feed. We have already set average prices. In the results section, the respective monthly costs will appear next to the feed plan, as well as the total per day, week and month at the bottom.

- Meat: We recommend a maximum fat content of 15%, depending on the dog's activity level.
- Rumen/leafy stomach: Can be fed mixed or individually.
- Offal: E.g. liver, kidney, heart, lung, spleen-- alternately or mixed.
- RFK/cartilage: RFK = raw meat bones. If bones are not used, calcium should be supplied elsewhere. Note: Cartilage is not a sufficient source of calcium.
- Vegetables: Cooking and chopping increases digestibility.
- Fruit: No grapes (poisonous for dogs)
- Carbohydrates/grains: Starchy foods such as potatoes or rice should be cooked until soft. When using flakes, soaking in warm water is usually sufficient.
- Oils: We recommend a combination of omega-3 oils (e.g. salmon oil) and omega-6 oils (e.g. safflower oil).
- Cod liver oil: Cod liver oil provides your dog with vitamin D and contains vitamin A at the same time.
- Barf supplement (napfcheck): Our barf supplement consists of seaweed meal, brewer's yeast, rosehip powder, salt and magnesium. It also contains important trace elements (copper, zinc and manganese) and B vitamins and natural vitamin E.
- Barf Complete (napfcheck): Our Barf Complete consists of eggshells, brewer's yeast and seaweed meal. It also contains important trace elements (copper, zinc and manganese) as well as natural vitamin E and vitamin D. Further nutrient supplements (except for oil) are therefore not necessary.
- Herbs or green-lipped mussel powder can be fed additionally as needed.
