How do I transition my dog?
Day one: Start by substituting one eighth of your dog’s usual food with Drool Pet Co.’s raw dog food for two meals.
Third meal: Substitute one quarter with Drool Pet Co.’s raw dog food for three more meals.
Seventh meal: Substitute one half with Drool Pet Co.’s raw dog food for three more meals.
Tenth meal: Serve one full portion of Drool Pet Co.’s raw dog food.
Your transition is complete! If your dog is a picky eater, it may take longer. If this is the case, try introducing small amounts now and again as a treat or reward, or mix these small amounts with your dog’s favourite treat or food.
How do I transition my cat?
Transitioning your cat to raw pet food is a much more gradual process than a dog’s transition. It can take anywhere from 3-4 weeks to several months for some cats to make the full transition.
The key to successfully transitioning your cats to new food is to go very slowly.
Start with mixing in a thumbnail size portion of your new Drool Pet Co raw food with your cat’s current food. This is just enough to enable them to get used to the sight, smell and taste of the new food.
From here, very gradually increase the amount of Drool Pet Co raw cat food, while proportionately decreasing the amount of canned or dry food. Continue this process for at least 3-4 weeks.
Most cats will make the transition in 3-4 weeks, but if your cat continues to show resistance, just slow down the transition, and be patient!
If your cat usually only eats dry food, the transition may be more difficult. If your cat isn’t interested in the small amount of Drool Pet Co’s raw cat food, you may need to transition them, using the same gradual transition process, to canned food so they can get used to the new texture and smell. Then, gradually shift to Drool Pet Co’s raw cat food.
