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.

    Great ingredients - Won't Rehydrate - Dog Refuses to Eat This

    By on

    I normally feed another brand of freeze dried raw that absorbs water to rehydrate. This one I soaked and it seems to have a harder outer shell and will not take in any water. Most freeze dried food readily absorbs water so I am not sure what is up with this one. At any rate I tried getting my dog to eat it anyway and she just leaves it in her dish. I even added a couple toppers to it and she just licks the topper and leaves the food. It's weird because she loves her freeze dried chicken treats. At any rate, I can not get her to eat this food so if your dog is picky and does not like kibble you may want to skip this one
