In recently weaned puppies, making the switch to raw puppy food should be relatively easy. Since they’ve only been eating their current diet for a short time, they should accept their new food without issue. Simply replacing their old food with high-quality, raw puppy food like ProDog’s Puppy Formula will often complete the transition.
It’s a good idea to start off with a single protein at first, so as not to overwhelm your puppy’s digestion. Also, in cases of puppies with sensitive tummies (or older puppies who have grown accustomed to their diets), switching to raw puppy food more gradually might be a better option. Replacing their current food with the new one, a quarter of a portion at a time over a four-day period, will ease them into their new diet more gently.
Here’s how that might look:
Replace one quarter of current food with raw puppy food
Replace one half of current food with raw
Replace 3 quarters of current food with raw
Replace entire portion with raw puppy food
