RAW FEEDING GUIDE
Feeding your dog a raw diet will improve their overall health and vitality. Dogs are biologically designed to eat raw meat.
If you don't feel confident enough to make a straight transition onto raw feed, it is easy to gradually transition. Introduce the raw feed over a 7 to 10 day period. Start by substituting around 20 - 30% of their processed food with raw feed per day, gradually increasing the amount until the diet is 100% raw feed.
This allows for the stomach of your dog to adjust to the increased protein levels in raw feed, especially if your dog has been fed a diet high in carbohydrates. Although some dogs do take to raw feed immediately.
If your dog is elderly or has long term health problems, it is best to consult with your vet for advice as a raw feed diet may not be suitable. Mild heath issues such as skin problems and flatulence can be resolved quickly once the switch has been made to raw feed
As soon as puppies are old enough to eat solids it’s a great time to begin raw feeding.
Dogs love to eat raw bones, it’s what they would have eaten in the wild. It is best to introduce raw bones as an occasional treat or a meal supplement after your dog has been eating raw feed meals for at least a month. Chicken carcasses are a great way to start, cut them into smaller pieces depending on the size of dog. You must always supervise your dog when feeding raw bones.
