The Raw Dog Food Diet

Raw dog food diets might seem like a new trend, but they've actually been around for a while. Racing dogs, such as sled dogs and greyhounds have traditionally been fed a raw dog food diet. Starting in the 1990s, people began feeding raw dog food to their family dogs. The idea has continued to gain popularity, especially since many pet blogs and other internet communities recommend raw dog food.

Why Can Dogs Eat Raw Food? 

Dogs evolved from wolves. While the dogs we keep as pets today don't generally hunt and kill their food, the digestive process to handle uncooked, unprocessed animal products is still there.  That's why dog's digestive systems can handle raw meat and other raw dog foods in most cases. 

How to Introduce Your Dog to a Raw Food Diet 

If you're ready, here's how to start feeding your dog raw dog food.  Before you start anything, consider how old your dog is. If your dog is a puppy you can probably transition them rapidly by simply switching their normal food for raw dog food. If your dog is older, there are a few more things you need to know about how to transition your dog to raw food. Here are some steps you can take:

Step 1: Start your dog out by giving them one meal of raw food and one meal of the good they're used to. Each day, provide a little more raw food and a little less of their former food until they're completely eating the raw food. Depending on your dog, this can take one to three weeks. 

Step 2: Cook the food slightly. Another method is to cook the raw food a little at first. You can cook it less and less each day until it's 100% raw. 

Step 3: Add probiotics or other supplements. If your dog is having trouble digesting their new diet, you can add probiotics and other digestive aides to their meal until they're used to it. This is especially helpful for older dogs who've been eating cooked and processed dog food for years.
