How do I switch my pet to Natures Recipe®?
We want to make the transition to Natures Recipe® pet food as smooth as possible. At first, start small. Make a bowl with ¼ super tasty Natures Recipe food and ¾ of your pets current food. If possible, keep the Natures Recipe® bag handy, as it has valuable info on portion suggestions and ingredients.
If your pet enjoyed this first meal, you can increase the amount of Natures Recipe® food to 50% on the second day. Keep an eye out for changes in his or her bathroom habits, energy levels, sleep habits, and eating behavior and if anything seems out of the ordinary, contact your vet.
Once your pet is happily eating 50% Natures Recipe®, increase to 75% Natures Recipe® in the next meal. Note, if your pet isnt there yet, dont worry. All pets are different and some may take longer than others for their digestive tract to become accustomed to the new foods composition and ingredients. If you need to, slow down the process and give each step 7 to 14 days. If your pet goes more than 24 hours without eating the new food, dont offer unhealthy treats. Instead, give them a full serving of the old food.
Finally, when your pet is ready, serve a full portion of delicious Natures Recipe food. Keep in mind it can take up to 3 months to see the results of a new food in your pet.

My dog or cat will not eat their food.
If youve just transitioned to a new food and your pet goes more than 24 hours without eating, dont offer unhealthy treats. Instead, give them a full serving of the old food until theyre eating normally again.
If theyre no longer eating their normal diet, stop offering treats and see if they eat normally again. You can also try to add wet food to a dry diet or alternate the protein / flavor within the same brand to add variety.
Cats in particular can be picky eaters; we always suggest transitioning new food with old food to give their digestive system time to adjust.
In either case, if your pet goes more than 24 hours without eating, contact your vet.
How much can I feed my dog or cat?
Your dog and cats food requirements vary depending upon breed, size, age, level of activity and environment. Please reference the feeding guidelines chart printed on your Natures Recipe® product packaging.
Can I feed Natures Recipe® to my puppy ?
Puppies have specific dietary needs so you need to ensure that your food is formulated for Puppies specifically, or for all life stages. Natures Recipe® has several puppy specific recipes, listed here.
