There are many reasons for choosing a Raw Diet, here are just a few of the potential health benefits: A reduction of general allergy symptoms. Cleaner teeth and fresher breath. Better weight control through improved digestion. Improved skin and coat due to a diet containing natural oils. Smaller and fewer stools generated by a more natural gut absorption which in turn creates a more fortified immune system. Superior liver function due to digestion of natural vitamin K. Improved pancreatic and bowel health, generating an all-round increase in energy and stamina levels, allowing greater mobility especially in older animals, thereby necessitating less trips to the vets and in so doing saving money all with a happier dog.
Switching your pet to a raw diet is very straight forward. We advise all our new starters to miss a meal of their current food and to start the raw the following day. Starting with such proteins as chicken and tripe or turkey you can add a new protein every 5-7 days. It is always best to take things slowly and not to put too much variety into your pet to start. The diet should consist of red meat, white meat , fish, bones and offal which should be balanced over a two week period. As long as you are feeding a wide varied diet your pet will be getting all they need. We DO NOT recommend mixing raw with dry kibble as this can cause digestive issues due to the different digestive rates between raw and dry food. If your dog is initially unsure of the new raw food, DON'T WORRY and don't let them see you are worried. Give them 10 minutes to eat the meal and if they don't, remove, cover, refrigerate and then re-offer it to them again around 4 hours later. This can be repeated several times a day.
As a general rule of thumb you would feed an adult dog 2.5% of it's adult bodyweight. For example an adult dog weighing 30 kilos (66lbs) would be fed 0.75 kilos or 1lb 6.5oz daily. If he is overweight or underweight you would adjust the percentage fed to compensate for this. Puppies between 7 and 10 weeks you should be between 8.5% and 10% The older the puppy gets the more the food is decreased as his bodyweight will increase
Raw bones are fine to be fed to dogs. Raw chicken bones are a soft bone and will break easily for the dog to digest. The canine species has been eating bones for thousands of years, if they were dangerous they would have become extinct! A raw bone is highly nutritious, and easily digestible. NEVER feed cooked bones.
