BARF stands for "Biologically Appropriate Raw Food" and refers to a nutritional method for dogs in which raw, unprocessed meat, offal, bones and plant-based ingredients are fed. Supplements play an important role in ensuring a balanced and needs-orientated diet.

Although BARF is considered a natural diet, it can be a challenge to provide all the necessary nutrients in the right quantities. This is where feed supplements come into play, which have been specifically developed to compensate for possible deficiencies and promote the health of the animals.

It is important to consider the needs of the individual animal. Every animal is unique and has different nutritional requirements.

This food supplement helps prevent nutrient deficiencies A varied, needs-based and balanced diet for dogs forms the basis for optimal development, health, well-being and performance into old age. That is why it is so important to feed dogs correctly. Our dog in particular is very alienated from its natural food. Only natural food gave the dog all the biological active substances that are vital for him and which are no longer fully contained even in the very best, fresh muscle meat of slaughtered animals. Many of these important, natural nutrients are lost in industrial feed production ? even in premium complete feeds. Even rations made up of meat, offal, cereals, etc., which the farmers themselves put together. (B.A.R.F.) do not guarantee that the dog's daily requirement of all important nutrients is covered. Optimal supply during dog sports and hunting Even during training and in other stressful situations such as exhibitions, hunting or competitive sports, Cafortan ensures an optimum supply through selected ingredients. Regular supplementation of the feed is recommended according to age and need Helps to reduce illnesses and irreparable signs of wear caused by inadequate feed.For the supply of vital substances in the case of a reduction in feed that is necessary for health reasons, in order to avoid the resulting deficiencies.Supports the overall development of bones and muscle formation in young animalsImproves general condition and vitality, especially in older dogs and during convalescence. Calcium and phosphorus are in the most favourable dosage ratio of 2:1 for barfening dogs and are therefore easily absorbed. They can therefore be absorbed and utilised particularly well by the body. Food supplement that dogs like Dogs like Cafortan very much, simply instinctively. If acceptance is a little hesitant at first, it is advisable to put just a few tablets on the dog's stash. Once the instinct is awakened, Cafortan is soon greeted daily with the greatest anticipation. Pregnant and lactating bitches should be given Cafortan regularly to cover their increased needs and to cover losses to the puppies from the time they are laid to the time they are weaned.

Fortan Keimöl plus: Ergänzungsfutter für Hunde und Katzen - 500 ml Flasche
Germ Oil Plus
FORTAN Germ Oil Plus for Dogs and Cats - Many healthy, unsaturated fatty acids Biologically valuable plant substances have always been used as ingredients in animal feed. With its high-quality animal and vegetable oils, FORTAN Germ Oil Plus represents a primordially healthy diet: Maize germ oil Evening primrose oil Linseed oil Sesame oil Cod liver oil Apart from breast milk, evening primrose oil is the only known source of the biologically particularly active fatty acid, gamma-linolenic acid. FORTAN Germ Oil Plus compensates for the lack of gamma-linolenic acid with its evening primrose oil content. Cod liver oil with 85% unsaturated fatty acids and its natural content of vitamins A and D has proved particularly effective in combination with evening primrose oil in cases of diet-related allergies. Necessary for barfing Prevents diet-related allergies For increased need of vitamins A, D and E Improves skin and coat condition Essential fatty acids must be supplied to dogs and cats in the diet, as the animal organism cannot produce them itself. These fatty acids have properties that are otherwise only found in vitamins. Growing, pregnant, lactating and ageing dogs also need doubly and multiply unsaturated fatty acids as well as vitamins A, D and E. A beautiful, shiny coat thanks to highly unsaturated fatty acids Arachidonic acid, which is extremely important for animal nutrition, is formed in the animal body from the fatty acid linoleic acid. Highly unsaturated fatty acids give a beautiful, shiny coat. A deficiency of vital fatty acids leads to characteristic skin changes, growth disorders and poor food conversion. Germ Oil Plus and Cafortan - an ideal combination Vitamin A is necessary for bone growth and serves to maintain the health and function of the upper skin layers. Vitamin D regulates the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin E fulfils important functions in the control of carbohydrate, creatine and muscle metabolism. When FORTAN Germ Oil Plus and Cafortan® are fed at the same time, the effect of the special vital fatty acids in the animal organism is promoted.

Beetroot is also rich in natural trace elements They contain plenty of copper, iron, folic acid, chromium, manganese, zinc and selenium, as well as vitamin B12. Folic acid and iron are of central importance in blood formation. "Betaine and folic acid make happy", because they activate messenger substances such as serotonin in the brain for positive feelings. Trace elements such as copper, zinc, manganese and selenium also serve as building materials in many joint diseases. A good supply of these elements is also highly recommended for allergic reactions and skin and coat problems. 110 g of beetroot granules correspond to approx. 1.2 kg of fresh produce and thus provide an extremely high content of active ingredients and fibre.

Fortan Dicalciumphosphat: Einzelfutter - 1000 g Beutel
Dicalcium Phosphate in pharmaceutical quality
FORTAN Dicalcium Phosphate for Dogs and Cats - For a needs-based calcium-phosphorus supply FORTAN Dicalcium Phosphate ensures a calcium-phosphorus supply for dogs that meets their needs. It is the special mineral feed with calcium and phosphorus for the optimal supply of bone structure and teeth. It is indispensable for numerous metabolic processes, as calcium and phosphorus metabolism are closely linked. Food quality Produced in Germany High biological efficiency These two elements are most aptly described by the term 'bone minerals', as they are primarily responsible for the stability of bones. FORTAN Dicalcium Phosphate is characterised by a corresponding conversion of the raw phosphates into a feed phosphate that is easily utilisable by dogs and has a high degree of biological efficiency. Constant calcium/phosphorus concentration in the blood Regular supplementation with FORTAN Dicalcium Phosphate ensures a constant calcium and phosphorus concentration in the blood. The favourable calcium-phosphorus ratio of about 1.3 : 1 prevents degradation from the bone cells and ensures an ideal calcium-phosphorus supply for the whole organism. The need for these two minerals is subject to considerable fluctuations. In some cases, it cannot be fully covered by the standard diet. Puppies, growing, pregnant and lactating dogs need higher amounts of calcium and phosphorus. This can only be compensated for with additional supplements. The greatly increased requirement during the first 3 months of the growth phase, the suckling period and also during the second half of the pregnancy must be taken into account when providing the supply. Only large puppies also need an increased supply between the fourth and sixth month of life. In lactating bitches, the requirement increases to two to five times the maintenance requirement, depending on the number of puppies. Consequently, the daily addition of FORTAN Dicalcium Phosphate to the feed is important. Ideal combination with Cafortan By simultaneously feeding Cafortan with its vitamin D3 content, the calcium uptake and thus the phosphorus utilisation is guaranteed in the best possible way. Due to the high quality requirements of our company, we only offer you this article from goods produced in Germany.

Fortan vita-Keimöl: Ergänzungsfutter für Hunde - 500 ml Flasche
vita-Germ Oil
FORTAN vita-Germ Oil for Dogs - Vital Germ Oil Active Ingredients, Vitamin A and E FORTAN vita-Germ Oil contains vital germ oil active substances and vitamin E-active substances in combination with vitamin A, which is called the "skin protection vitamin". This sustainably increases the natural resistance to infections. Pure vegetable oils for B.A.R.F. feeding Increases resistance to infections Carotenoids enhance branding and pigmentation Against dry, scaly and itchy skin Rich in unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic and linolenic acid Extremely effective for metabolism It is excellent for activating fasting and diet cures. Carotenoids - especially beta-carotene - are important micronutrients for skin and body. Beta-carotene is converted into vitamin A by various metabolic processes in the dog and thus indirectly unfolds extremely positive effects for the skin, the visual process and the whole body. Only the amount of beta-carotene that the dog's organism actually needs is utilised. Daily administration of FORTAN vita-Germ Oil facilitates the natural absorption and utilisation of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E by the organism. FORTAN vita-Germ Oil is based on germ oils containing 50 % essential and vital fatty acids (also called "vitamin F"). Tasteless: can therefore be added to any feed Mixed with fresh egg yolk (and possibly a little bee honey), it becomes a special treat. Regular doses, depending on the size of the dog, are beneficial for maintaining health. FORTAN vita-Germ Oil also works as a topically applied functional oil: dry, brittle skin becomes supple, functional and protected.

Fortan Calcium 40: Einzelfutter mit 40 % Calciumcarbonat - 600 g Beutel
Calcium 40 in food grade quality
FORTAN Calcium 40 for dogs and cats - The compensation for an unfavourable mineral content in raw feeding FORTAN Calcium 40 serves to compensate for an unfavourable mineral content, as can occur when feeding phosphorus-rich food in home-made feed rations (B.A.R.F.) or proportionate meat feeding to ready-made feed. Food grade Produced in Germany Feeding phosphorus-rich foods, e.g. meat and offal, results in a relative reduction of calcium levels in the dog's body. This is not surprising, because 100 g of meat contain on average 40 mg of calcium, but 170 mg of phosphorus. This results in a calcium-phosphorus ratio of only 0.2 : 1, which can quickly lead to a calcium deficiency in the dog. Balanced calcium-phosphorus ratio = optimal metabolism A calcium-phosphorus ratio of between 1.3 : 1 and 2 : 1 should be aimed for in the feed rations, depending on the performance requirements. If the recommended ratio is deviated from below 1 : 1, the intake will be negatively affected. This also affects the dog's metabolism. The supply gaps due to extremely low calcium but high phosphorus contents in the feed lead to bone cell degradation as well as an impairment of bone stability and require the targeted supply of calcium. Calcium is the most important mineral for the development and maintenance of the skeletal system and teeth. It is also important for other metabolic functions. It serves to control and regulate processes in the cell membranes. FORTAN Calcium 40 has a high calcium content of 40 %. Due to the high quality requirements of our company, we only offer this article from goods produced in Germany.
