During the transition and for a short time period afterward, you may notice that your pet may exhibit symptoms which may lead you to believe they are sick. Symptoms may include loose stools, vomiting/diarrhea, or excess shedding. These are all good signs that your pet is detoxing and ridding itself of the harmful toxins of kibble.

Dog Feeding Guide

This chart represents the average dog and how much they should eat in a day/week. Dogs should be eating about 2-3% of their total body weight per day. Depending on their age and activity level you can adjust their food consumption.

Note: Puppies should be eating at their expected adult weight and fed 2-3 times a day.

  1. Stop free feeding them and implement set meal times 1-2 times a day.
  2. Fast your dog for a whole day to clear out any left-over kibble.

Option 1: Cold Turkey Switch (Recommended)

  • Immediately start feeding your dog raw.
  • Some dogs will eat the raw food right away, but for the picky eaters, you can continue to fast them. Put their food down and wait about 15 minutes, if they do not eat it just put it back in the refrigerator and try again later.
  • Dogs can go days without eating so do not feel bad if they are not eating, they will eat once they are hungry. (Note: During this period do not give them any treats)

    Option 2: Gradual Switch 

    • We don't recommend this option because raw food and kibble are digested differently and can cause some tummy issues.
    • However, there are some situations where a gradual switch might be a better option.
    • Examples: Elderly dogs, dogs with sensitive stomachs and super picky eaters.
    • For gradual transitions please follow the above chart.
