Dr Ian Billinghurst

Veterinary Surgeon B.V.Sc.(Hons), B.Sc.Agr., Dip. Ed.

Nutritionist, Acupuncturist, Agricultural Scientist, Author, Lecturer, Nutritional consultant and RAW Pet Food Producer.

Dr Ian Billinghurst has worked in companion animal practice since 1975. In the mid 1980’s, following years of clinical research, he was shocked to realize the devastating effect that commercial foods had on dog and cat health and amazed at the dramatic healing power of RAW. From this clinical research came Dr Ian’s first book, “Give Your Dog a Bone”, which was the original RAW food book for dogs. This book, together with his lecture tours to the UK, US, Canada, Japan (and further books), became the spark, which ignited the worldwide RAW pet food movement. Dr Ian Billinghurst is recognized as the “Father” of “RAW” and the founder of the BARF (Biologically appropriate Raw Food) Diet. Dr Billinghurst remains as passionate as ever about Health—through Evolutionary Nutrition—with his current lectures and writings emphasizing the basic truth…  “Nutrition… it’s absurdly simple.”

Biologically Appropriate Raw Food

A Bones and RAW Food (BARF) Diet is the healthy program of nutrition that evolution designed for our cats and dogs. It is the ONLY way to approach nutrition, if a genuinely complete and balanced diet is to be achieved. When our pets face health problems such as obesity, arthritis, allergies, autoimmune disease, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, kidney disease and so many more, including cancer, the first step on the path to health is to switch to the evolutionary program of nutrition—also known as—BARF.  This is the drug-free solution to the many health problems our pets face.
