Acabonac Farms |

Switching your dog to a raw food diet is an excellent choice for their health and well-being. However, sometimes dogs may be hesitant to eat raw food, especially if they're used to processed kibble. In this article, we'll discuss some reasons why your dog might not be eating their raw food and offer tips on how to encourage them to enjoy Acabonac Pet raw dog food.

There are several reasons why your dog might not be eating their raw food:

  1. Texture and temperature: Some dogs may be put off by the texture or temperature of raw food, especially if they're used to eating kibble. The cold temperature of raw food straight from the refrigerator can be off-putting for some dogs.
  2. Habit and taste: Dogs can become accustomed to the taste and texture of their usual food, making them resistant to change.
  3. Picky eaters: Some dogs are naturally picky eaters, and switching to a new diet can be a challenge for them.

Here are some tips to encourage your dog to eat Acabonac Pet raw dog food:

  1. Gradual introduction: Instead of making an abrupt switch, gradually introduce Acabonac Pet raw dog food into your dog's diet. For example, you can start with 100% Grass Fed Beef Raw Dog Food or Pastured Lamb Raw Dog Food, mixing a small amount with their current food and slowly increasing the proportion of raw food each day.
  2. Warm it up: If your dog is sensitive to the temperature of raw food, try warming it up slightly by placing it in a sealed bag and submerging it in warm water for a few minutes. Avoid using the microwave, as it can cook the food and destroy essential nutrients.
  3. Make it more enticing: Add some tasty toppers or mix-ins to the raw food, such as a little bone broth, a sprinkle of nutritional yeast, or a spoonful of canned pumpkin. These can help make the raw food more appealing to your dog.
  4. Change up the proteins: Acabonac Pet offers a variety of raw dog food options, so you can find the one that best suits your dog's taste preferences. If your dog isn't a fan of one protein, try offering another, such as our Pastured Lamb Raw Dog Food.
  5. Be patient and consistent: Changing your dog's diet can take time, so be patient and consistent. Stick to the new feeding routine, and don't give in to the temptation to feed them their old food or treats.
