Chicken is a great source of nutrition. It is high in protein, low in fat and packed with nutrients such as B vitamins, amino acids, potassium, selenium and niacin that are critical for building and maintaining your dog’s healthy body.
While low in fat, it provides many nutrients which can help with your furry’s weight management and maintain healthy bones, teeth and nails.
Chicken liver is a highly nutrient-dense food which contains the most concentrated volume of protein and Vitamin A.

*These recommendations are for guidance only. Every dog has different calorie requirements.
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.
An Average Transition
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.
