How to start raw feeding
How much should I give?
Fruit and Veg
Some people do. Some people don’t.
if you do its either:
5% fruit and veg
or add to normal amount without calculating
What should I give my dog?
note: please be responsible when feeding bones to your dog. Always supervise your dog when they have a bone. Do not feed cooked bones.
Weight bearing bones of big animals such as leg or knuckle bones don’t supply significant dietary nutrition for your dog. These bones are not designed to be chewed up and swallowed, only gnawed on which makes them good recreational bones. They provide mental stimulation and are great for your pup’s oral health.
How do I switch?
There are two general methods of making the switch to better nutrition, "Rapid " and "Slow."
this is the simplest way to make the switch. You simply go ahead and do it! Yesterday you fed your dried food or canned pet food and today you begin to feed raw.
(note: if your pet is older or has digestive problems or impaired immune systems it may not be appropriate to do the rapid swtich.)
Gradually transition to RAW over 7 days
Days 1-7 divide daily ration into 50% raw and 50% previous food
Feed in alternating separate meals, avoid mixing if possible for easier digestion
Ideally meals are about 12 hours apart
From day 8 feed 100% raw ration
