We recommend feeding 2-3% of bodyweight per day.
All dogs are different - active dogs need more food than couch dogs!
We advise feeding raw meaty bones several times a week as well. Dogs need regular bones to clean their teeth and exercise their jaws. If you aren't sure what type or size to feed, get in contact with us here and we'll help you select the perfect bone.
We recommend transitioning to Whoa Nelly! over 7-10 days. This helps your dog's body adjust to the raw diet at their own pace, and minimises digestive stress.
Of course, if you have any concerns please speak to your vet first. Whoa Nelly! is naturally chunky and contains pieces of meat and chicken wings which are suitable for dogs of all sizes. As with all bones, always supervise your dog eating.
The first change you might notice is your dog's poo, especially if you've been feeding dry. When feeding Whoa Nelly! you should find smaller, firmer poos that turn white and then ash in a few days. This is completely normal - and better!
Over time, your dog may go through a detoxification process. This is normal if you’ve been feeding dry food for a sustained period of time. Your dog may lose their old dead hair (they'll be replaced with shiny new ones), and may also excrete excess ear wax. It is also normal for your dog to pass some mucus in their poo during this process.
Finally, your dog will drink less water. This is because like meat, Whoa Nelly! is mostly moisture - about 72% compared to 6% for dry kibble. Real food is moisture rich, and is much more easily digested.
