Are you thinking of finally switching to the raw dog food diet, but not too sure how to start? The transition is easier than you think! Find all useful information below to get started on raw feeding your dogs.
A successful transition to a raw food diet usually takes up to 3 weeks. There are many known methods used when transitioning to raw feeding, but the most commonly used are the Rapid Switch and Gradual Switch.
Cold Turkey Switch
The Rapid Switch, otherwise known as the Cold Turkey Switch, is an immediate switch to raw feeding.
The Gradual Switch gradually introduces raw food into a dog’s current diet. It usually takes three days to two weeks to make the full transition, depending on your dog’s age, weight, and activity level.
How to do the Gradual Switch
Start the transition by gradually replacing the usual food servings with raw food, until the diet consists of 100% raw food, but keep each feeding separate. Never combine raw with kibble in one meal because they are processed
at different rates.
