Why can my dog only eat one protein for the first week and no bone content?
Changing your dog’s diet from kibble or cooked to raw changes the PH of their stomach, until the PH is low enough (4-5 days) your dog’s stomach won’t be able to digest the bone.
Is it normal that my dog’s poo is very sloppy?
If you’re new to the diet and it’s your first week its normal as you will have only just started adding bone content. The bone adds consistency to their stool. If this persists bone content may need to be increased.
What are the advantages of a raw diet?
There are many advantages, just some are listed here:
- Weight loss
- Glossy coat
- Smaller stools
- Leaner and stronger
- More energetic
- Helps with allergies
- Improved digestion
- Increased mobility in older dogs
- Strengthened immune system
- Improved liver, pancreatic and bowel health
- Cleaner teeth and fresher breath
- Savings due to less trips to vets
Is the raw diet a lot more expensive than a kibble diet?
For a premium priced kibble brand, the difference is negligible and the savings will be made from fewer trips to the vet.
My dog is struggling with losing weight, would the raw diet help?
From our own personal experience absolutely. My own dog that was on “scientifically proven weight loss kibble” lost no weight until changed to the raw diet, allowing her to lose 7 kilos in the space of 6 months with the same amount of exercise.
Your packaging says that your bone content comes whole, is it possible to have it minced?
Yes of course when you place your order, we can tailor make it to your specifications.
I haven’t seen my dog defecate in a few days, is this normal?
When first transitioning, yes because their stomachs are adapting to the new diet. If they have been on the raw diet for some time and still noticing no defecation bone content would need to be adjusted
My dog tends to eat a lot of grass, is this normal?
One of the many questions we get asked by our clients when first switching to raw (especially in the winter months) is why my dogs are eating grass. Are they missing something from their diet? Simple answer is NO and here’s why: The university of California, Davis, by Karen Sueda, Benjamin Hart and Kelly Cliff conducted a study that was designed to test the hypotheses that most plant eating in dog’s is associated with illness and results in vomiting or that grass eating is associated with some kind of dietary deficiency. The initial study was a serve of 25 veterinary students who had pet dogs. All of the students reported that their dogs ate grass; none reported seeing any signs of illness before the dogs ate the grass and only 8% said that their dogs regularly vomited after eating it.
