Wash hands, utensils, counters, food dishes and related areas thoroughly with hot, soapy water after each feeding. Store freeze - dried products in a cool dark place. Best if fed within 30 days after opening.

Transition Instructions

Switch to a purely RAW diet slowly. Some pets may take to RAW immediately, while others may take longer. Take at least 10 days to 2 weeks to gradually transition your pet’s diet. This gives the digestive system time to adjust to the new food.

  • Step 1: Choose a protein (stick with the same protein for the first 2 weeks)
  • Step 2 (Day 1 - 3): Serve 25% RAW mixed with 75% current food
  • Step 3 (Day 4 - 6): Serve 50% RAW mixed with 50% current food
  • Step 4 (Day 7 - 9): Serve 75% RAW mixed with 25% current food
  • Step 5 (Day 10 and after): Serve 100% RAW

Always provide access to clean, fresh water.
