Transitioning to raw diet

Post by funkyrimpler on Sat Aug 22 2015, 16:52

Hi folks,
I've had Spudleycuddlebug for almost a week now, and have maintained the breeders feeding regime..This is basically 3-4 times a day..Beta puppy for breakfast then naturediet (i think its called) for the rest..
He never eats the Beta..just crunches a bit and leaves it, but ive got him into a bit of scrambled egg for brekky or the naturediet stuff, but over the last few days ive been giving him tiny bits of raw meat as a treat, which he loves.
Today i gave him a little taste of offal and he loved it, so i put this in with his normal food..He wolfed the offal down and left the normal food!
I'll be keeping an eye on his no2's to make sure it's not too much for him, but he seemed to love it..
I think i'll give up with the Beta..he just isn't interested...at first i thought it was because he settling in...

And advice on moving to raw, and what about giving a puppy egg? Is that ok?

Have a trundle through here, there's loads of interesing stuff:

and this is helpful too

In essence, you start with some fairly easy protein sources and, sorry Mr Spuddlicious, that doesn't include offal. It's very rich and can cause digestion problems. Liver in particular is something to go easy on even for adult dogs.

The advice is usually to start with chicken although I use turkey as we keep chickens and can't bear the thought of it. White fish is also good early on. Stick with just one protein source to start off with, then gradually add others as his stomach gets used to it.

And then in a couple of weeks you can add some easy bones. Dog heaven is a raw bone.
