When you first change your dog over to raw, it's wise to introduce one protein at a time, to let his digestion get up to speed quickly. Our starter box provides you with all you need to do this. (If you already successfully feed raw to your dog, then we suggest our Taster Box )
We suggest starting with chicken, then adding beef, turkey, pork and then lamb over the coming four weeks. Our starter packs come in four different sizes, depending on the weight range your dog. falls into. Once established and happy with our raw food, you can move to our mainstream packs, trying to feed at least three different protein sources (for example chicken, beef, pork) each week.
Each pack typically contains enough food for four weeks. For example, a starter pack for a dog weighing up to 10kg will include 6 chicken, 4 beef, 3 turkey, 2 pork and 1 lamb protein packs. Other packs are multiples of these combinations.
For working dogs, we recommend feeding 3-4% of your dog's target weight daily, once past puppyhood. For pet dogs, we recommend 2.5 - 3%. For example, if your dog's ideal weight is in the range 7.5 to 10 kg, you would feed approx. 250 to 275g per day. Following this model can also help your dog, if he is overweight, as his weight will trend down over time. Of course, involve your vet, if you have any worries over how to manage his weight. Be guided by your dog, of course, as some dogs need more or less than these percentages to maintain a healthy weight.
Each individual pack is identical to our main protein packs, with a selection of ground and whole bones. We have just worked out how much of each you will need for the first four weeks or so. Simply select the appropriate pack from the drop down menu that most closely matches your dog's current weight range, and we will do the rest.
Starter packs are approx. 5% cheaper than purchasing individual packs.
Individual packs are 500g. Image of open cartons shows typical contents (clockwise, from top - beef, pork, chicken) The cubes are frozen minced offal, and the round item is a "bone burger").
