Transitioning picky eaters and older dogs to a raw diet
Some picky eaters or older dogs may turn up their noses at their new diet. Don’t worry, this is easy to address. Simply follow these steps:
- Eliminate treats during the transition period.
- Serve their meals in a new place or “safe” area of your kitchen away from foot traffic.
- Add flavor “bribes” such as garlic powder, low-sodium parmesan cheese, or an egg yolk.
- Gently cook Darwin’s meals to release the flavors and aromas. We recommend lightly sautéing in a pan over medium to medium-high heat for 8-12. Remember not overcook as the bones can become brittle (please note: for puppies under 4-months of age, or for dogs with a compromised immune system, we urge you to utilize this method).
