Feeding your puppy Raw
Transitioning puppies from other foods to raw food
If you are going to be transitioning your puppy from a different food other than raw, we advise that you do this over several days to allow their young digestive system time to adapt slowly.
If you are feeding 3 or 4 small meals per day, we suggest switching 1 meal to raw for 3 days, then 2 meals to raw for 3 days, then 3 meals to raw etc. until all meals are successfully changed.
Are raw bones & chews suitable for puppies?
Puppies can be offered bones and chews as soon as they are fully weaned onto raw food.
We recommend starting with an easier chew, such as beef tracheas or tripe chunks to help them adapt their jaw strength.
Following successful feeding of these, soft, light bones can be introduced such as duck or chicken wings, depending on the size of your puppy.
We advise against feeding any bones which are very dense to help protect their baby teeth. For more information, click on our bone guide.
Raw, natural food can be easier for dogs to digest.
Plus, there's none of the added sugar, fillers or derivatives found in some of the more commercial pet foods, that can cause your pet digestive issues.
More manageable poos
Because raw food is 100% natural with no added fillers, there's less waste to come out the other end!
Resulting in smaller, firmer, more pick-up-able poos, which is a win -win for everyone.
Shinier coat and healthy skin
Just the right quantities of carefully selected fruits, vegetables, protein and healthy fats can give your dog a glossy coat and can also help to improve skin conditions.
Stronger teeth and better dental hygiene
Raw meaty chews are a great natural addition to your pet’s dental routine.
A tasty, healthy choice to help clean teeth, provide entertainment and freshen breath.
