How do I Start my Dog on Freeze-Dried Raw Food?

Starting your dog on a freeze-dried raw food diet is a great way to provide them with a nutritious, healthy diet.

We understand that making the transition is a process, so here are 5 tips to make that process as smooth as possible for you and your furry friend:

  1. Consult with a veterinarian or canine nutritionist before starting your dog on a freeze-dried raw diet. They can help you create a balanced meal plan that meets your dog's unique nutritional needs and provide guidance on how to safely transition to a new diet.
  2. Gradually introduce freeze-dried raw food into your dog's diet. Start by mixing a small amount of freeze-dried raw food with your dog's current food, and gradually increase it over the course of several days or weeks. This will give your dog's digestive system time to adjust to the new diet and minimize the risk of digestive upset.
  3. Make mealtime fun and engaging for your dog. Freeze-dried raw food can be rehydrated with water (or plain bone broth) to make a tasty and nutritious meal for your dog. Try adding some pet-safe fresh, chopped vegetables or fruits to the mix to make it even more appealing. You can also try offering the food in a puzzle toy or food-dispensing ball to encourage natural foraging behavior and prevent boredom.
  4. Make the transition to a freeze-dried raw diet a fun and rewarding experience for both you and your dog. Try introducing new flavors and protein sources gradually, and reward your dog with praise and treats for trying new foods. You can also involve your dog in the meal preparation process by letting them watch you rehydrate the food or add fresh fruits or veggies to the mix. This can help make mealtime more enjoyable and engaging for your furry friend.

As with any change in diet, it's important to monitor your dog's health and behavior closely when starting them on a freeze-dried raw diet.

Look for changes in their energy levels, appetite, stool quality, and overall well-being. If you notice any changes or concerns, be sure to contact your veterinarian right away.

Overall, starting your dog on a freeze-dried raw food diet can be a fun and rewarding experience for both you and your dog. With a little planning and care, you can help your furry friend enjoy all the benefits of a nutritious, species-appropriate diet.

One of the best decisions we've made for our dog
Since we switched Chief to a fully raw diet 6 months ago we’ve seen amazing changes in him! He’s less bloated and is very lean now!( more defined muscles ) His teeth are way more clean on raw. He doesn’t suffer from itchy skin anymore, his coat is naturally shiny now!
My pet hates EVERYTHING! Little Hunter was a hit though. I couldn't believe how she enjoyed the beef, fruits and vegetables recipe.
