Recommended Feeding Guidelines*
*These recommendations are for guidance only. Every dog has different metabolism. If your furry is overweight or inactive, these estimates may be too high. Always monitor your furry’s weight and adjust the feeding amount accordingly.
The time required to move your dog from commercial dog food to fresh,high quality Furry’s Kitchen can vary depending on the age and sensitivity of your dog,but in general it takes about 5-10 days.
Think of this transition as a detox. For many dogs it will be the first introduction to preservative-free whole food. As a rule of thumb, go slow, as there is no need to rush the transition. Once your dog has acclimated to Furry’s Kitchen you will probably notice significant improvements. Even “premium dog food” and “healthy dog food” brands contain a staggering volume of indigestible ingredients, preservatives, chemicals, etc.
WHAT IS THE TRANSITION LIKE FOR MY DOG?
Most dogs make the change very easily. Some dogs with more sensitive stomachs experience slight discomfort (loose stool, upset stomach) which is perfectly normal, so please do not worry. Simply scale back the percentage of Furry’s Kitchen to old food, and transit a bit slower. Nothing replaces the watchful eye of a loving pet parent, so if you have any questions please give us a call.
WHEN MY DOG SEEMS HUNGRY FOR MORE FOOD SHOULD I FEED HIM MORE?
Dogs generally love food, and especially love our food. The feeding guidelines, like all feeding guidelines, are approximate and subject to a given dog’s age, activity level and metabolism. With that in mind, begging probably has more to do with loving the food than needing the nutrients. If he begins to lose or gain unexpected weight, simply adjust the amount incrementally until his weight stabilises.
Furry’s Kitchen’s food does not contain any artificial preservatives, additives or colouring. Hence, they must be stored in the freezer and can be kept for up to 2 months.IMPORTANT: Upon delivery, store in the freezer immediately.
Simply defrost in the chiller overnight and heat up before serving. For any remaining opened packs, store in an airtight container store in the chiller. Remaining food can be kept in the chiller for up to 2 days.
Furry’s Kitchen food can be served straight out of the packet. However, for your dog to fully enjoy the best flavour and smells of the food, we recommend that you heat the food up before serving.
