If your pet turns their nose up at the smell and texture of their new food, you're not alone. If this happens don’t be concerned and don’t give up - this is a battle you will win!
Like humans, dogs and cats are all different and may require different approaches to transition them to fresh, balanced species-appropriate diets. There are a variety of reasons why your pet may be reluctant to make the change to raw food and these challenges can be overcome by following these simple steps:
Important to note:
If your pet initially loved their new raw food for a couple of days and then suddenly stopped eating, don’t be alarmed. This happens sometimes.
You have just fed your animal the most nutritious meals it has ever had and so for the first time in its life, your pet is satisfied and full. They don’t want or need any more food and so might refuse to eat for a day or two.
This is perfectly normal and is in fact excellent for your pet’s health. Giving the digestive tract a rest is fine for a short while.
Most pet parents will have their dog and cat on a raw diet without any glitches in the transition period. However, if your pet is uncomfortable with change, especially fussy eaters, take it slow and be patient. Your effort will be well worth it!
