When can a puppy start a raw diet?
All three of the most popular raw diet approaches recommend feeding puppies raw food soon after weaning, which usually begins when puppy teeth come in about a month after they’re born. These temporary teeth fall out when puppies are between three and seven months old and are replaced with 42 adult teeth.
How much raw food should I feed my puppy?
We recommend feeding: A daily intake of 5% – 8% of your puppy’s weight, across four meals a day, until they are four months of age. A daily intake of 5% – 8% of your puppy’s weight, across three meals a day, until they are 6 months.
Is raw meat bad for puppies?
Raw meat is likely to contain harmful bacteria like Salmonella, Listeria, E. coli and more. Cooking meat to a safe temperature kills off those harmful bacteria. By feeding uncooked meat, there’s a higher risk your dog will develop a foodborne illness or other type of bacterial infection.
