Transitioning at your pet’s own pace is the key to developing acceptability and digestibility for a novel new food. As you begin, try offering very small portions along with your pet’s usual meal. Once the new food has become familiar and/or appetizing enough to entice your pet to try it, increase the sample portion size while decreasing the amount of the old food that is offered. This process could take days or even weeks especially with cats. Your pet may be expressing a survival instinct, which is at the root of an aversion to something unfamiliar so patience is the key.
Each bag contains at least 12 “pet pucks”, weighing approximately 2 ounces each. The Furry Foodie™ formulas have been approved for adult maintenance requirements. Multiply your pet’s weight in pounds times .22. This will equal the number of ounces to feed twice daily. For one meal a day, double the amount. For kittens and seniors you will have to adjust portion sizes. There may also be additional requirements and considerations based on your pet’s overall health, age and activity level, so please consult your veterinarian to help you determine an adequate diet for your pet’s special needs.
We use a short list of high quality ingredients;

The natural goodness remains.
The Furry Foodie raw food for Cats & Dogs offers important nutritional advantages over common highly processed foods. The Furry Foodie is more like wild-‐caught prey with a naturally enjoyable taste and texture. There is no need to artificially enhance the product with vitamins and minerals, they are still present in the food in their original, absorbable and digestible form.
A very convenient natural diet.
The Furry Foodie is convenient for you to serve. Using only minimal processing techniques, our dinners are hand-‐blended and formed into countable “puck” shaped disks using no fillers. They are then flash-‐frozen and packaged in sealed bags to preserve their quality. They will actually remain wholesome and safe to serve indefinitely as long as the product remains frozen during storage; we recommend using within the first 6-‐months after purchase so your pet can enjoy the optimum flavor and texture.
Is raw okay for your pet?
Our formulas are complete and appropriate for all healthy adult Cats & Dogs on maintenance diets. If your pet has special needs, your veterinarian can help you decide how you can incorporate raw food into their routine.
