Hi ya, welcome to the forum from Flo & me Big Grin

Well done on the rescue thumbs up

If you're switching from a kibble or wet food diet to raw start the transition slowly by introducing some raw mince a little at a time to allow the tummy to adjust otherwise you may well have a messy clean up to do.

I'm not a raw feeder so can't offer in depth advice, however, there is loads of raw feeding threads and one of the best is Banes raw diary. There are other here that feed raw and, I'm sure, will offer great advice

Hey welcome to the forum from me and Rio Smile

I think there's 2 ways to go about it, one of which is what Ian said, introducing little bits slowly

The 2nd is what I did with mine (and it's individual to the dog, won't work for everyone) we had a complete clean cut from kibble and went all raw straight away, we use complete meals, meaning the amount of meat/offal and bone are already there. We stuck to very bland meat- chicken and turkey to start off with and added in beef, lamb, duck over time.

I'm still fairly new to Raw feeding myself, only been doing it a couple of months- there are a lot of experienced raw feeders on here who will have plenty of advice for you Smile
