Each dog is unique so feeding amounts will vary with age, breed and activity.
For best results, it is recommended that you weigh the food using a digital scale.
Please use this chart as an initial guide.
Always weigh your dog every 1-2 weeks and adjust initial servings accordingly when starting any new diet.
The time required to move your dog from commercial dog food to fresh, high quality Furries Fresh Food can vary depending on the age and sensitivity of your dog, but in general it takes about 5-10 days.An Average Transition
Think of this transition as a detox. For many dogs it will be the first introduction to preservative-free whole food. As a rule of thumb, go slow, as there is no need to rush the transition.
Once your dog has acclimated to Furries Fresh Food you will probably notice significant improvements. Even "premium dog food" and "healthy dog food" brands contain a staggering volume of indigestible ingredients, preservatives, chemicals, etc.
What is the transition like for my dog?
Most dogs make the change very easily. Some dogs with more sensitive stomachs experience slight discomfort (loose stool, upset stomach) which is perfectly normal, so please do not worry. Simply scale back the percentage of Furries Fresh Food to old food, and transit a bit slower. Nothing replaces the watchful eye of a loving pet parent, so if you have any questions please give us a call.
When my dog seems hungry for more food should I feed him more?
Dogs generally love food, and especially love our food. The feeding guidelines, like all feeding guidelines, are approximate and subject to a given dog's age, activity level and metabolism. With that in mind, begging probably has more to do with loving the food than needing the nutrients. If he begins to lose or gain unexpected weight then simply adjust the amount incrementally until his weight stabilises.
We recommend following these food handling practices for the safety and pleasure of your pets.
