How to Change a Dog's Diet From Dry to Raw Food
- 1). Start by mixing three quarters of your dog's original dry chow with a quarter of the new raw food. Feed your dog using this ratio for a minimum of two days to get her accustomed to the new ingredients. Some raw meat pet food producers suggest starting off with raw ground meat products during the first week of your pet's dietary transition.
- 2). After the first two or more days of the switch, mix half of the dry food with half raw food. Once again, make sure to keep feeding your pooch with these proportions for another two days or more.
- 3). Finally, adjust the meals to a ratio of three quarters of raw food to one quarter of dry. After about two days of giving him this mixture, you can begin to feed your dog only raw food from that point on.
