Just by feeding your delightful little twin puppies some minced turkey, goat milk, and egg. You can help him stay to live with you. Your dog can eat chicken, beef, turkey, venison, pork, lamb, rabbit and more in the way of tummy upsets. When bringing home a new puppy who wasn’t raised on raw, it will be hard to get him started. When feeding your puppy, you need to balance the calcium and phosphorus content in his food. In fact, it’s safer when choosing the raw food than kibble. We will give you some tips for getting your puppy started on a raw diet.

Start off cold turkey

You shouldn’t mix your puppy’s raw food with kibble. In fact, they need the different pH in the gut to digest. That’s why your dog is more prone to the bacteria in the raw meats. Your dog can be able to handle this bacteria just fine. But, if you add in artificial foods, this surely leads to a much greater chance of harmful bacteria.

Start with one protein source

If you intend to prepare your own raw or use a prepared raw food, we recommend you to start with just one protein source such as turkey or chicken. First, it's best to give him one protein for a good week. Then, start him on the second source of protein if you don't see any signs of digestive upset.

Balance the calcium and phosphorus

It's not difficult to do this. If you want to feed your dog a turkey neck as a nice meaty bone, it's best to give him half to two-thirds meaty bones as well as the half to one-third meats and offal. In fact, there is no magic formula for every puppy. According to the kibble manufacturers, you can easily balance calcium and phosphorus. You can find calcium in a synthetic powder. They are nearly impossible for a puppy to excrete.

Feed your dog three times a day

You should feed your dog three small meals a day until he is six months old. Then, you can feed him twice a day or even once a day if you want. You especially pay attention to this if you are looking for small breed puppies. The fact is that these puppies can become hypoglycemic if you let their meals be spread out too long.

Feed 2-3% of the adult body weight

It’s not difficult to determine whether your dog is a purebred dog. But, it’s best to feed 2-3% of your puppy’s anticipated adult weight. You need to know if your dog is too fat or too thin. Then, adjust the amount you feed accordingly.

Don’t overdo it with the offal

Your dog can suffer from some pretty nasty loose stools caused by liver and other organ meat, especially when they have never had this food before. That's why you should wait until there are a good two weeks of solid stools. Then, you can introduce organ meats. Next, it's time to add them in gradually. Avoid feeding one giant meal of liver. In addition, it's a mistake if you skip the organ meats. They can provide your dog full of nutrients you can't find in muscle meat.

Remember the supplements

Your dog will get benefits from some supplementation. They include fish or krill oil, coconut, nutritional herbs (dandelion leaf, alfalfa, nettle and more), Probiotics, as well as bovine colostrum (helps your dog build a strong immune system).

Other important stuff

It's important to give your dog plenty of fresh and non-chlorinated water. In addition, he also should get plenty of exercises and fresh air. The best method is keeping the walks short until he is at the age of six months.

Prevent an upset stomach

Your dog needs to adjust his stomach to the new diet for the first couple of weeks. If your dog is sick, his body may be detoxing from the previous diet. This process normally lasts within a week or two. There are some signs such as bad breath, diarrhea, and itchy skin. During this time, we recommend you to add digestive enzymes, to their diet. They can be able to firm stools quickly as well as aid in digestion.

What to do if your dog gets vomiting

There are many reasons that can lead to vomiting:
Sensitive stomach: If your dog have a sensitive stomach, you can easily see yellow bile when he is vomiting. Then, it’s time to feed him right after.
Drink too much water when he’s hungry: If this is the reason, you will see white foam or globs of mucus. You need to feed him.
Detoxing: This may be a part of the normal detox process. The method for you is adding honey or applesauce to his diet to handle his stomach during this process.
Ingest a foreign object: If you think your dog is vomiting due to swallowing some type of foreign object, you have to monitor him closely. You should contact your veterinarian.

Safety concerns

Just by preparing raw meals correctly, you can help to prevent your dog from contracting a food-borne illness. Humans are easily prone to contracting a food-borne illness while dealing with and preparing raw meals. But, you can avoid it with good sanitation practices. Don't forget to clean and disinfect anything the raw food touches such as knives, kitchen counters, food bowls, cutting boards, and your hands. food touches such as knives, kitchen counters, food bowls, cutting boards, and your hands.
