    We’ll be getting an 8 week olde English bulldog in April, he’s currently on dry food and I would like to feed him on a raw food diet. How would I go about introducing this without upsetting his stomach? And which foods are the best to start with?

    Thanks everyone

    Yazmin one of the important keys to not upsetting his stomach is a VERY, VERY slow transition from what the breeder has been feeding him. Meaning feed the majority of kibble as his diet mixed in with the raw a tiny bit of the time until he’s fully transitioned to the raw. I feed freeze-dried raw in different brands. Don’t know the fat content in truly raw feeding. Just know that in certain proteins/flavors my dogs have a problem if the protein is too high in fat with certain brands. I stick to the low in fat because it causes stomach upset in my small dogs. So keep this in mind if your pup has loose stools after the full transition. Good luck with your new puppy.

Along with this diet, you can exercise your dog regularly at home or go out into the park.
