Transitioning to a Raw Food Diet

Transitioning your dog to a raw food diet should be a gradual process to minimise any potential digestive upset. Here are some steps to follow:

  1. Start with small amounts: Begin by adding small amounts of raw food to your dog's current diet. This can be done over several days or weeks, depending on your dog's individual needs.

  2. Choose quality ingredients: Make sure to choose high-quality, fresh ingredients for your dog's raw food. This should include a healthy balance of raw muscle meat, offal, fruits, and vegetables with bones being added to the diet too. If you are buying your raw food already made up, check the ingredient list and ask about freshness and quality. Avoid any ingredients that are potentially harmful to dogs, such as grapes and onions.

  3. Monitor your dog's progress: Keep an eye on your dog's digestion and overall health as you make the transition. If you notice any signs of digestive upset, such as vomiting or diarrhea, slow down the transition or consult with your vet.

  4. Adjust portion sizes: Once your dog is fully transitioned to a raw food diet, monitor your dogs weight and adjust their portion sizes accordingly.

Remember, every dog is different, and what works for one may not work for another. It's important to be patient and observant as you make the transition to a raw food diet.
