Common Issues when starting Raw Feeding

Dog or Cat Refuses to eat

Sometimes we get excited at all the benefits of raw food that we get home, and our pup or cat takes a sniff and walks away from it. Don’t get dismayed your not the only one this happens to.

If your pet is used to eating kibble or canned food their whole life this new food is very different. There are a couple of ways to deal with it, but it will take some work and patience on your end. Easiest way is to just put the raw meal in front your pet and then walk away if they have not finished it in 15min place it back in the fridge till dinner time. Do this for the next couple days, once they are hungry trust me, they will eat it. (Never do this with a pet younger than 1yr old) Fasting your pet is not something you should be scared about but if you’ve reached over 5 days. There are some tricks to making the food more appealing, add in some bone broth to the meal, you can also lightly cook the meal, add in some tripe or sprinkle some cheese on top.

Your pet's stool is runny

This is common during the initial transition period. Your pet’s stomach is used to processing fillers and starches from kibble and they just need some time to adapt. Give them about 1-2 weeks for your pets stool to become firm.

My dog or cat isn't eating all the food

If your pet is not eating all his or her food, it is most likely due to overfeeding. Make sure you’re weighing out your pets’ servings when feeding raw. Add in some raw eggs, tripe or bone broth to make more enticing if your are feeding the correct serving size.

My dog/cat threw up right after he/she ate raw food

This can happen for 2 reasons eating too fast or due to a sudden change in diet.

If your pet ate too fast, we recommend buying a lick mat to create enrichment and to slow down the eating.

If you have just switched your pet to a raw diet, then it was regurgitation. This happens because your pet’s stomach was expecting their normal (kibble) food and prepared the wrong enzymes to digest the food. Please do not panic, simply skip their next meal, and serve again the next day. Adding in some tripe can help as well.

Unless your pet vomits multiple times in short window of time and can’t hold down water you don’t need to rush to the vet.

My dog/cat threw up hours after eating raw

Generally, this occurs because your pet is lacking the proper enzymes to digest the pathogens in raw meat. Most likely has a PH imbalance in the gut (generally from a dry kibble diet). This means you should slow down your transition period. Our recommendation would be to cut the amount of raw you’re serving into 1/3 and add in some probiotics that can help aid your pet. We recommend goats milk or kefir you can mix this in with the food and see how your pet does daily. You then would adjust depending on how they are doing. If your pet, then refuses to eat the food we recommend visiting a holistic vet for more guidance on transitioning.
