Not sure how to switch your dog from Kibble to Raw Diet?

Keep reading. This is what I learnt a few years ago when I switched Mylo to the goodness of a raw diet.

The first thing to know is there are usually 2 barriers when transitioning your dog to a raw diet. The first is a possible gastrointestinal/digestive upset, secondly, could be your dog’s willingness to accept the change in diet. The best and quickest transition for young healthy adult dogs and puppies is to make a complete switch from kibble to raw food.

Second, limit the variety of food you offer your dog and feed exclusively 1 protein for at least 3-5 days. Most dogs transition to the raw diet within 48 hrs. Feed only a Prepared meals for the first 2-3 days before offering Whole food choices. Beef Offals, fish and tripe are best introduced once your dog has made a complete transition to the raw, usually within 1 week.

Last but not least

Do NOT mix raw and dry food kibble together. Raw food is passed through the digestive system at a much quicker rate than dry food. If you do want to continue feeding kibble with raw food, feed them separately (raw-am, kibble-pm). Slow/Gradual Transition Occasionally we have dogs that do not transition as easily or as quickly to a raw food diet. This is more common in senior dogs or picky eaters.
