Feeding Guidelines: If you have never fed raw before, you may be surprised as you watch your dog's health improve while they transition to a healthier diet. It's important to be aware of how much you should be feeding your pet. When you feed your pet a raw food diet, they will often require less food than if you were to feed them a kibble/grain-based diet, because the food has so much more nutritional value. There are a few factors that will affect the recommended amount to feed your pet, such as age, activity level, and weight goals. We use the bodyweight percentage rule, which estimates feeding amounts based on the weight of your pet. For example, if you have a 50-pound adult Australian Shepherd, then you would want to feed them 2.5% of their body weight, which is 1.25 lb (daily).
50lbs x 2.5% = 1.25 lbs
Body Weight Percentage Recommendation: We suggest that you feed your pet the following percentages based on their activity and weight goals.
Transition Guidelines: You want to transition your pet to raw food slowly to prevent stomachaches and loose stools. Start by mixing 1 part Steve’s with 3 parts of the food you are currently feeding. Slowly increase the amount of Steve’s while reducing their previous food over the course of 1 to 2 weeks. Monitor their temperament and stools to ensure they are transitioning well.
Safety: Please keep in mind that you are dealing with raw, unprocessed meat. As you would when preparing raw meat for your human family, take the precautions of washing your hands after touching, cleaning surfaces thoroughly, and any other steps you would normally take. While animals have the digestive tracts to deal with contaminants such as salmonella and e-coli (which we test regularly for and keep our foods free from regardless) it is the risk for human contact that leads to FDA recalls of raw pet food in our industry. So remember to treat your dog and cat food as you would any other raw meat. Recalls are actually more likely from kibble, so if you are mixing take the same precautions with both types of food.
