Top Tips When Switching to Raw Dog Food
Wean them Slowly
A dog needs to be weaned slowly on to a fresh, high meat protein diet: 5% one day mixed into their normal food, 10% the next etc. We have always advised to move over slowly and we are not seeing any hiccups. And start with a product you know he’s going to like, usually something chicken or seed based (as most dry foods are based on these proteins).
Do not feed big lumps
Dice the food up small or mince , to guarantee easy passage.
Don’t start on rich food
Such as fatty minced beef or organ meats, as they can contain a lot of rich nutrients (high iron, for example). It is better to start on the white meats.
