A healthy dog should be able to make the switch “Cold Turkey”
Senior, immunocompromised, and dogs suffering from illness may need a slower transition. We suggest raw to be fed at on meal, and then current food at the second meal:
Day 1-2: 25% raw, 75% current food
Day 3-4: 50% raw, 50% current food
Day 5-6: 75% raw, 25% current food
Day 7: 100% raw
We also suggest adding a digestive enzyme to aid in transition. Diabetic dogs absolutely need to be monitored by a vet.
In the fridge overnight. Always try to serve the liquid as well as many nutrients are contained in it! Once you feed raw, you’ll always have raw food gradually thawing in the fridge for the most nutritious meal.
Gnawing on raw bones is very natural and enjoyable for dogs. But not every bone is safe. The benefits of raw bones is not the same for all bones. Some edible bones are rich in nutrients and can aid in dental care and digestion. Most raw fed dogs already have acid in it’s stomach making bone consumption easier.
Fresh meat on the bone in natural proportions can be given as an occasional meal. An occasional chew bone or play bone can also be given in addition to a meal.
*Cooked bones should never be given and all dogs should be closely supervised with bones!
A natural biologically appropriate diet would consist of eating and fasting. A wild canine diet would naturally fast to give its immune system a chance to look after itself. It gives the immune system a break and a chance to detoxify any toxic build-up and restore balance. It really is quite healthy and some dogs still need to do this despite being fed regularly. I have noticed Huskies and Shepherds to be most prone to natural fasting.
