Which size pack should I order?
That really depends on the size of your dog, we recommend opting for the 500g/5kg box for dogs under 20kg and for dogs over 20kg it would best best to choose the 1kg/10kg box.
What do I feed first?
It is best to start with the options that contain bone so for the first 4 days feed Chicken and Vegetable or Duck and Vegetable (depending on which box you choose) , then feed 2 days of Boneless Beef and Vegetable. From there you can alter each day. When you have completed the starter pack you can choose from our other Mixed Boxes with various protein options.
Transitioning to Raw:
So there is no strict exact way to switch to raw, just like humans, every dog is different. We have helped many pet owners change their dogs diet to a raw food and here is what we have learned over the years.
Sensitive Dogs – So if your dog has recurring stomach upset then we recommend transitioning slowly. The best way to do this is to slowly introduce raw food into their diet each day, as you increase the raw quantity, decrease the dry quantity.
No issue Dogs – So you have not seen any issues with your dogs digestive tract, they have stomachs of steel then you can fire ahead and do a straight switch if you like. 95% of our clients have done a straight switch with no issues.
Switching from dry to raw can be very similar to switching from different brands of dry food. The raw dog food diet is not scary, it is fantastic!
Feeding Guideline for Raw Dog Food:
2.0% of your dogs bodyweight is for an inactive/over weight dog
2.5% of your dogs bodyweight is for the average pooch that goes for a small walk each day and tends to not gain weight.
3.0% of your dogs bodyweight is for a more active dog, the leaner type dog
There is no guarantee on which percentage will best suit your dog, if they are overweight/inactive go straight for the 2%. On average the 2.5% is the best trial option and if there is weight gain, simply reduce it.
Every dog is different, factors such as neutering plays apart in their metabolism, it is best to find what suits your dogs individual needs.
Example: 2.5% of a 10kg = 250g per day.
