Making the Switch : Gradual Route
- Gradually over a period of 5 – 10 days begin to replace the current diet with raw.
- Days 1 & 2 = 25% Raw
Days 3 & 4 = 50% Raw
Days 5 & 6 = 75% Raw
Day 7 = 100% Raw
- Start with a poultry protein such as Chicken, Turkey or Duck. These proteins are often easier to digest, which will result in a quicker and easier transition.
- Serve the first raw meal at room temperature. Food that is icy cold from the refrigerator can cause your pet to vomit. Waiting for food to be warm also enhances the food aromas.
- Day 8 - Exclusively feed each variety the first time for a few days, before moving onto the next to help with digestion.
