Introducing Raw Food to Your Dog

If you are changing from a dried food diet to raw I suggest start gently by choosing 1 protein – either tripe or chicken mince is a good starter – check their stools and if they look ok, introduce another protein – repeat this process every 1 or 2 weeks or so still checking stools, until he/she is receiving a balanced variety.

Raw Food for Puppy

It is quite common for a dog to have loose stools on the changeover, this usually only lasts a short while and things begin to firm up in no time. You will notice that on raw your dog does not defecate as much as on commercial, this is due to most of the food is utilised and the waste product is less. Every bit of goodness is being processed and used by your dog – fantastic!

Puppies can be fed raw straight from weaning and can progress to fish/wings/carcass etc from 6 -8 weeks. Minces and minced carcass are similar to the regurgitated food they would get from their mothers in the wild. Build slowly onto chunkier meats and soft bone – meaty chicken ribs, necks or wings are good to build their jaw strength.

Puppies can be fed raw

For puppies – Chicken wings should have the wing tip cut off at the third joint, as, should the puppy be tempted to swallow it whole, the double joint of the wing is a major choking hazard for pups.

Puppies cut teeth between 4 & 6 months so, good meaty bones of a suitable size are fantastic for them to gnaw on.
