How to Switch to Raw Feeding

Natural raw food is suitable for all breeds of dogs, of all ages and sizes. To determine how much food your dog should have, you need to consider his age, weight and how much energy he expends. Dogs that get a lot of exercise or that are nervous use more energy and therefore need a slightly bigger portion.  

THE IMPORTANT THING IS TO CHANGE OVER GRADUALLY

Almost all dogs who subsist on dry food have imbalanced gut flora. The older the dog and the greater amount of dry food, the greater the imbalance. To allow these dogs to get used to natural raw food, it’s best to introduce it gradually.

As for puppies, natural raw food is as important like in adult dogs, but you must get the puppy accustomed to it. If the nursing bitch is already on Raw Cut food, then the process is much easier, in that case It is advisable to start with small amounts of fresh meat, so that there is a gradual switch from the bitch milk.

If your dog is already on dry food and you want to switch him to Raw Cut Complete, then we recommend that you first start with a fasting day then gradually build up the amount of Raw Cut Complete as shown on the table below.
