HOW MUCH DO I FEED MY DOG & CAT?
As a general rule, a typical adult dog will consume 2-3% of their body weight per day. This percentage will vary based on your dog’s size, activity level, or health.
When it comes to feeding your cat, the amount of food they need depends on their size, weight, and activity level. Adult cats should typically eat 2-4% of their ideal weight per day. Since the activity level of a cat can vary depending on their personality, we suggest that you monitor your cat’s weight and adjust the amount accordingly.
Raw dog & cat food are packed in 500g containers & 2kg bulk cryovacbags. All food is delivered frozen, packaging is freezer safe so they do not split or shatter leaving plastic shards in the food. However, in our climate we do ask customers to leave out an esky if you are not home for the delivery. As a result to cut down the impact on our environment and avoid using polystyrene.
Next day delivery in Cairns (mon-fri) (if we are unable to do this you will be notified by text or email) and your delivery will likely be rescheduled to the day after. Drool Pet Co. deliver every Thursday to the northern beaches/Redlynch areas. In addition, we make fortnightly deliveries to the Tablelands and Port Douglas. Moreover, be sure to check on facebook & Instagram for these delivery schedules. Please thaw all raw dog food in the refrigerator and use within two days.

SEE DRAMATIC CHANGES
For cats, a fresh, meat-based diet can have a profound impact on their health – even more so than for dogs. Because of cats’ carnivorous nature, they are biologically adapted to obtaining their water requirements from their food, and feeding fresh food can help avoid many of the problems associated with hydration imbalances often caused by dry food.
However, these symptoms do not mean your pet is sick it’s just detoxing. The situation will resolve itself in a week or two. Above all, make sure there is always fresh water on hand. And exercise may help speed up the process.
Health concerns such as red eyes, dry skin, excessive itching and scratching, loose stools, additional shedding and low energy are dramatically mitigated when your dog is eating what nature intended. The result is healthier happier dogs.
HOW DO I START THE TRANSITION FOR MY DOG?
Start with substituting 1/8th of your dog’s usual food with Drool Pet Co.’s raw food.
After two meals double Drool Pet Co.’s quantity to a ¼. After three more meals double Drool Pet Co.’s portion to ½. for three more meals After these three meals serve one full portion of the raw food. Transition complete! Picky eaters may take longer, try introducing very small amounts now and again as a treat or reward. Or mix these small amounts with your dogs favourite treat or food.
HOW DO I START THE TRANSITION FOR MY CAT?
Transition Very Gradually
The key to successfully transitioning to a new food for cats is to go very slowly. In most cases, start by mixing in a thumbnail size portion of Drool Pet Co.’s with their current food – just enough to enable them to get used to the sight, smell and taste of the new food.
Then, very gradually, increase the amount of Drool Pet Co.’s, while proportionately decreasing the amount of their current canned or dry food. Continue this process for at least 3-4 weeks. Most will make the transition within this time but if your cat continues to show resistance to this unusual new food, just slow down the transition. It could take several months for some cats to make the full transition.
Transition From Dry Food
If your cat has been eating dry food and won’t eat any of the small amount of Drool Pet Co.’s raw, you may need to first transition them to a canned food to get used to the new texture and smell. Use the same gradual transition process over several weeks to move to canned food and once that is successful, do the same to gradually shift to Drool Pet Co.’s raw cat food.
Your patience and perseverance will be well worth the effort for the benefit it brings to your cat’s health!
Cats prefer their meals served warm or even closer to body temperature. Warming the meals releases the flavours and aromas. Cats choose their food by smell, since a warm aromatic meal is more appealing than a cooler food.
Use a flat food dish so it does not interfere with your cat’s sensitive whiskers and put them off their food.
