WHERE IT ALL STARTED
Dr. Ian Billinghurst (affectionately known as ‘Dr. B.’) graduated with a BScAgr. in 1966 from Sydney University as an Agronomist and Nutritionist. He worked as a research Scientist at Orange Agricultural Research Station in NSW briefly, then spent four years teaching secondary level Science and Agriculture. During this time, Dr. Billinghurst obtained his Diploma in Education from The University of New England, Armidale.
His first book, “Give Your Dog a Bone” was published in late 1993, and is one of the most influential books on canine nutrition ever written, discussing why raw food is the ideal diet for dogs. In 1997 and 1998, Dr. Billinghurst toured the UK, then the US. His seminars here spawned the enormous raw food movement that now flourishes across North America and arond the world.
He created, then marketed his own brand of Pet Food – Doctor B’s BARF, for over ten years. He now consults, writes and lectures on evolutionary nutrition and conducts clinical and literature research into nutrition.
