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 fine, introduce another protein – repeat this process every 1 or 2 weeks or so still checking stools, until he/she is receiving a balanced variety.
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 they did on dried/wet food, this is because 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!
