So, you’re thinking about making the switch to raw, but wondering what the transition will look like? Changing your dog’s diet from highly-processed to nutrient-rich and raw may require some minor adjustments to your normal feeding regimen. Start things off slow and steady for the first week.
Mix any of our Primal Formulas into your dog’s current food at a ratio that your dog will tolerate. You can start this with as little as 1/4 Primal to as much as 3/4 of your pet’s current food.
If your dog accepts the raw food during days 1-3, increase the amount of raw food to ½ Primal and ½ current food for each meal.
If your dog is experiencing any gastrointestinal distress during the transition, try adding 1 tablespoon of Goat Milk or Winter Squash Puree to each meal.
The digestive support from the soluble fiber & probiotics in our Elixir and turmeric, ginger & probiotics in our Goat Milk can help soothe your pet’s digestive tract and make transitioning a success.
For days 7-9, continue to increase the amount of raw food to 3/4 Primal and 1/4 current food for each meal.
You did it!
Congratulations on adding fresh raw foods to your dog’s diet. You should now notice smaller stools with less odor. Don’t forget to vary the proteins for your pet once you’re sure that they have successfully transitioned. It’s important to provide variety and rotation for optimal health.
