You also avoid feeding a food that is full of unhealthy fillers used to add bulk to a dry dog food.When you are cooking from scratch, you are leaving out the chemical additives and preservatives, so it becomes important to find ways to preserve the food naturally. For a raw dog food diet, this is most commonly done through dehydration.Although dehydrated raw dog food is available commercially, many pet owners simply want the control of knowing exactly what they are feeding their dog. Commercial dehydrated raw dog food may offer convenience to a busy household but the dehydration process is fairly simple once you go through the initial steps of finding the right ingredients for your dog and learning to quickly prepare the ingredients for dehydration.If you’ve decided to begin making dehydrated raw dog food, you will need to slowly introduce your dog to the new diet. This transition should be done gradually to allow your dog’s stomach time to adjust and tolerate the change to a dehydrated raw dog food. Start by including approximately one third dehydrated food to their regular food and then gradually increase the amount of dehydrated food over a two week period.You might have to experiment with amount of water and rehydration time, to get the texturethat's right for your dog. Lots of pet owners turn to these types of foods because they wantto feed as close to raw as possible, without actually having to deal with raw food. Rememberthat raw food naturally has a lot of water in it which is good for the dog... so don't feeddehydrated foods "dry". Always rehydrate!
