Good luck on conviencing your parents that BARF is better for the dog. I'm getting Kozmo BARF right now and he loves it. I'm living at my girl friends house (my parents won't let me have 2 dogs) and her parents thinks feeding raw food is wrong and stupid. They raised dogs at there earily age and fed there dogs cooked food. They said feeding raw food will make the dog more vicious. I told them it wouldn't and they didn't believe me. I wanted to tell them if Lions and Tiger eat cooked food versus raw food, will it make them less vicious? No right? If it's in them, it's in them. Other reasons like bateria, cold food, etc they disagreed on. They even think feeding dogs salty food is good for them and has no side effects.
