How much raw do I feed my dog?

Your dog's dietary needs vary by activity level, metabolic rate, age, breed, outdoor temperature and other variables. It is important that you observe your pet closely and increase or reduce food quantity as needed for proper weight. As a general rule of thumb, it is recommended to feed your pet approximately 2% - 3% of its body weight daily. This can be given in a single meal or broken into multiple meals throughout the day. For puppies aged 12 months and under, a ratio of 5%-6% of their body weight daily is recommended. 

It's important to remember that these are guidelines and that the amount you feed may vary over time. Observe your pet closely and adjust quantity as needed for proper weight goals.

My dog currently eats kibble.  How do I transition him/her to a raw diet?

Transitioning your pet from a kibble-based diet to a raw diet can be a process. While it is possible to switch your pet “cold turkey” to a raw diet, generally speaking, the older your pet and the longer they’ve been on kibble, the longer the potential transition (up to a week or two).

  • Day 1: give your dog only water, no food

  • Day 2: 1/4 of raw diet serving and 3/4 of regular diet

  • Day 3: 1/2 of raw diet serving and 1/2 of regular diet

  • Day 4: 3/4 of raw diet serving and 1/4 of regular diet

  • Day 5: full raw diet serving size

 

During transition, it is best to break the daily serving size into two meals per day: one in the morning and one in the evening. Puppies - Typically puppies do not have any digestive issues, therefore they will be able to tolerate a more rapid switch within 1 or 2 days. You should start by adding 1/4 cup of Raw Pet Food to your dogs current diet each meal, gradually increasing the raw food while reducing the kibble until your dog is completely on raw.

Things to Look our For:

Stool - During the first couple of weeks of transition, you are likely to notice a little film of mucus on your dog's stool. This is OK. Additionally, you may notice you’re pet’s stool is “darker”, this is okay and is typically a sign that your dog's body is cleansing itself of toxins. In addition, your dog's stools will become noticeably smaller and less smelly from the transition.

Do i need to supplement my dog(s) with other foods while on a 702 Raw Pet Food diet?

Our blends are formulated as a complete and balanced diet typically containing approximately 80% proteins, 10% bones and 10% other secreting organs and oils.  This means that when feeding your dog(s) our blends, you don't need to supplement their diets with additional items.  That said, many people do so and it is good to provide variety in your dog's meals.  Supplementing their meal with treats or tripe or other supplements is suggested to keep their dietary choices fresh.  You can also switch blends to provide variety and choice.
