Yes, all of Big Dog raw and fresh dog food is completely safe for your pet. The only precautions you should take are the same ones that apply to raw meat you would buy for yourself: keep the products refrigerated and wash your hands carefully after handling food. For pets that have experienced intolerances before, we recommend trying our single meat protein diet (SMPD) raw dog food.
BARF is an acronym that stands for “biologically appropriate raw food" or “bones and raw food”. As these names indicate, not all raw dog food is BARF dog food. The principle of the BARF diet is to feed your pet the diet their ancestors ate — meat, fruit and greens that are fresh, raw and uncooked, in the appropriate balance.
Yes, you can mix our Big Dog raw products with kibble. While we believe that feeding your four-legged friend our fresh dog food is better for their health, combining fresh and dry food (called co-feeding) might be your preferred solution. Having kibble on hand can be a good backup plan in case you run out of our BARF raw dog food and want to speed up feeding if you are pressed for time. Just remember to adjust the feeding portions accordingly and not give the total recommended daily amount of both products.
Whether your dog was already on a raw diet or is transitioning from a dry one, we recommend you introduce our Big Dog raw food slowly over 2 weeks. By doing so, you are minimising the risk their stomach will get upset by the change and are giving their digestive system a chance to adapt.
The following is an indication of the best practice:
Day 1-3 — 20% new 80% old
Day 4-6 — 40% new 60% old
Day 7-9 — 60% new 40% old
Day 10-12 — 80% new 20% old
Day 12+ — 100% new diet
