What's the best food flavor when starting a raw diet?

July 24, 2019

We usually suggest the chicken or the chicken and beef blend to start with. It's less expensive and your dog is going to enjoy it as much as any of our other flavors. We do recommend switching flavors from time to time to ensure your dog's gut bacteria can experience the naturally occurring bacteria in and from different animals.

Changing proteins for dogs most closely mimics a biologically species-appropriate ancestral diet! Some pet parents rotate proteins every 5-7 days. Here are some of the benefits of switching up your dogʻs diet: (a) Picky eaters - pets get bored with eating the same thing day after day. The more diverse the diet, the more exciting meal times become! (b) Nutritional variation - different meats contain various levels of protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Similar to how wild animals hunt for a diversity of prey, domesticated animals also require varied protein sources.
