We recommend a straight switch to raw, there is no need to gradually introduce. Pick your day and make the switch to a totally healthy and natural diet.
However, if you wish to add raw in increasing amounts, while decreasing the old food over 3-5 days, that is fine too. There are no hard and fast rules here, so do what you feel is right for your dog and his or her needs. The most important thing is that you have chosen to make the switch, and whether you do right away or over a few days, you will be doing the best thing you could do for your doggo!
Please read our Switch to Raw guide for detailed information on how to switch.
A balanced and nutritious raw diet must include variety. You should be aiming to feed at least 5-6 different species ie lamb, beef, duck, chicken, pork, venison, turkey, fish, kangaroo etc over a 2-month period.
When feeding raw, variety is essential. Dogs will gain different levels of nutrients from different animals so the more variety the better.
To ensure your dog is getting everything they need, we recommend choosing a variety from our Classic Range of 80-10-10 complete meals, and our Paleo Plus complete meals.
Classic mini pouches are very convenient and ideal for small breeds, holidays, day trips etc.
If your dog has allergies or intolerances, just make sure the products you buy do not contain what they cannot have.
No. We do not recommend refreezing the food once it has fully defrosted. Once fully defrosted, it will last in the fridge for 3 days.
Due to the biodegradable and compostable packaging keeping our products very well insulated, it can take around 48 hours to defrost a pack in the fridge.
We advise only using raw manufacturers that can prove they have high standards. This will ensure the raw food you buy has been sourced, handled, prepared and stored correctly and is safe to feed. Call and question companies before you purchase. Find a company you can trust, check independent feedback like Google and Feefo.
Paleo Ridge are currently the most accredited Raw Dog Food manufacturer in the UK. We have sought and gained, independent globally recognised accreditation:
Independent unannounced audits are mandatory for these extra accreditations. This ensure we meet their very high standards, every single day. The standards laid down by DEFRA are very basic compared to our other accreditations.
Please see our hygiene instructions on how to safely handle and store raw dog food in the home.

When it comes to exercising your dog, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. One of the most important yet often overlooked, is whether or not your dog has eaten.
Duck is a fantastic addition to your dog’s diet. This nutritionally dense meat packs a powerful immune boosting punch, whilst being incredibly delicious (so my dog tells me!).
