BENEFITS OF RAW FEEDING
Raw feeding dogs and cats has many benefits including:
A soft shiny coat
Less body odour
Smaller, less frequent stools
Chewing on meaty bones increases mental stimulation and satisfaction thus creates a happier and calmer animal
GUIDE TO FEEDING RAW
A good rule of feeding is 80% muscle meat, 10% offal (of which 5% is liver) and 10% bone. It is perfectly OK to vary the % from day to day to suit you - but you must feed this balance over a period of around a week, your dog will come on leaps and bounds. We offer a varied range of complete raw dog meals and complementary meats with offal that bone needs to be added. However if you don't want to worry about this choosing a good quality complete meal from our range can give you confidence that your dog is getting all it needs in a balanced meal.
Should you need any additional advice we will support you every step of the way, and happy to help where we can.
Kittens need no transition; they take to raw very easily. Kitten food is not necessary, they eat the same food as adult cats, just more of it and more often. They also need to eat more often than adults, about every 4 to 6 hours.
The key to transition for an older cat is patience.
The transition can be fast or very slow – this will depend on your pet.
Be very patient. No matter how long it takes, stick with it, it’s worth it.
Never switch diet instantly but instead mix the current diet with some of the raw diet.
Provide your cat with a variety of raw flavours and textures.
How much raw meat and bone diet should you feed your cat?
Feed around 2% to 3% of their total body weight.
Kittens of 9 months can eat twice as much per gram of body weight as an adult cat as they are growing.
We also offer cat supplements and natural treats. We are always happy to help as much as you need us to. Just send us an email and we will reply within a timely manor.
