Food and Dog

Raw Food and Your Dog
Dog lovers know that no two dogs are the same, is not the only answer when it comes to weaning a dog off the pieces dry and semi-natural raw foods. You can still use a few basic techniques that you can go in the right direction, though.
1. Stay positive. Pets can be a very perceptive and they know if you have questions about this transition to a raw food diet. If you are sure that your pet will feel more confident about changing their usual diet.
2. If you have an older dog that has eaten the same food for a long time, it takes more time on this raw diet.
3. It is important to use a race with the introduction of a meat-based, raw diet for dogs, but it's usually better to just one type of meat used to start transitions - usually the type of meat, already dog chunks. By doing this the dog's digestive system easier.
4. Not your dog before the beginning of this change. If your dog is hungry, it's much more interested in what they do, and it also offers some down-time for their digestion.
5. If this transition occurs, do not let your dog too many treats. This primal hunger for the new dog food.
6. Give your dog a lot of pure, filtered water to drink.
Raw diet Puppies
Puppy can make extra shift just a few days because their digestive systems can cope with new foods faster than older dogs. Start by going to the fourth dog Darwin. As time progresses, rise, Darwin and subtract pieces, until all that is left is a new, raw diet.
Healthy young dogs raw diet
Younger dogs are simpler, faster transition in comparison with the older dogs or dogs that may be unhealthy. Transition within one week it is usually possible, provided the dog does not feel symptoms such as vomiting, constipation or loose stools feeling. Making this transition slowly, your dog's digestive system is flexible to adapt to new foods.
1. Start reliance 1/8th of your dogs raw food diet.
2. Once the dog has eaten three times, try turning off the fourth dog.
3. Repeat this again for three meals, using a mixture of half and half portions of raw food.
4. Finally, after another three-meal, leave the dog completely raw meal. Ideally, the dog has no signs of distress. If the dog seems fine, you have successfully made the switch!
Old Dogs & picky eaters
Dogs with the old ways can not accept the structure or the smell of raw foods. This is not uncommon, especially in smaller breeds. There are a few simple steps you can do.
1. During the change, do not let your dog treats.
2. Not your dog before you are eating.
3. Raw light meals can be cooked to activate the tastes and smells. Remember to cook them something. Express simmered on the stove, or transit through the toaster should do the trick.
4. Current flour in a way that makes the dog comfortable, like home or a remote spot in the kitchen.
5. An extra flavor to their meals, such as egg yolk, cheese, or garlic powder, most dogs will try and give a new food without too much trouble!
