What should I expect during the transition period?

If your dog has been on a processed diet, they may experience a mild detoxification period when first transitioning to a natural raw diet.

This will take place through their bowels and skin. Your dog may experience the following symptoms: 

  • Runny eyes
  • Dry skin
  • Excess shedding
  • Mucus coating your dog’s poop
  • Skin conditions may briefly worsen 

When switching to a raw diet, all of these symptoms are completely normal.

While some pet owners may be concerned, this is actually a good thing.

Many people refer to this as becoming “unsick.” Toxins accumulated from eating a processed diet will be eliminated by your dog. These symptoms should go away once new healthy cells replace the old unhealthy ones!
