Transitioning to Raw

Transitioning to raw should be done slowly to allow your pet's digestive system to adjust to their new diet. It is normal for your pet (dogs in particular) to go through a detox process, especially when switching from kibble. Normal experiences during this time would be loose stool for a week or two, excess shedding and runny eyes. These are all common signs of a healthier diet!

Transition Tips for Cats

  • Stop free feeding and implement set meal times 2-3 times a day.
  • Introduce your cat to high protein canned food so they can get used to the texture. Slowly incorporate raw food along with canned food.
  • Let your cat go a little hungry and then offer him/her the raw diet (DO NOT withhold food for more than 24 hours).
  • Provide a comfortable and safe place for them to eat.
  • Be confident! Your cat can sense their parent's distress which might make you and your cat doubtful of the switch.
  • Try hand feeding the raw food to your cat.
  • Warm up the food slightly as some cats prefer this. (Note: do not cook!) 
  • Attract your cat by sprinkling enticing food on the raw formula:
    • Parmesan cheese
    • Bonito flakes
    • Meat treats
