How To Transition To Raw
The calculator above will help you estimate roughly how much raw food you will need to replace kibble. It is only intended as a guide. It is important that you monitor their weight no matter what you feed them! For puppies aim to feed 2-3% of adult body weight as soon as possible.

Transitioning from Kibble to Raw Food
Our mission is to improve the health and longevity of your pets and the best way of achieving this is to feed a natural, bio appropriate diet. We have witnessed the benefits of feeding a raw diet to our own cats and dogs and for us (and them!), there is no turning back.
For most dogs making the transition from kibble to a raw diet is straightforward and can be achieved in a few days. For some it may take a little longer.
The advice you will most often hear from the many people who have made the transition from kibble to raw, and what we would recommend is a gradual introduction of raw to your dogs meal.
Start with a quarter of the total meal and increase until you are feeding 100% raw. This allows your pets digestive system to adjust gradually back to its natural state of acidity.
Here is a link to an excellent article describing the changes to the GI tract of kibble fed cats and dogs. It is the reason why we recommend a slow transition to a raw diet.

Once defrosted, we recommend it stay in the fridge for no longer than three days.
How much should I feed?
The General rule of thumb is to feed between 2-4% of your dogs body weight if they are an adult. However, many conditions apply so we encourage you to use our calculator as a rough guide.

Do I need to add supplements with your food?
If you are feeding our variety packs, our food will provide the necessary nutrients that your pet needs over the course of its meals. Some pets, however, may require an extra boost of vitamins and minerals depending on various factors. If your pet needs this, we recommend feeding your pet Phyto Synergy (link to the blog).
Is raw safe for my puppy?
Yes! It certainly is. If your puppy was raised on kibble, we recommend a slow transition over to raw. Some puppies may require their food to be gently sauteed for a few days while transitioning but ultimately, the goal is a complete raw diet.
