Transitioning to Dog Child:

Transition gradually by adding an increasing amount of Dog Child Cooked Meals to the current food being fed over a week.

We encourage upcycling ingredients from your kitchen such as veggie stems or bruised fruits to add to your pet’s meals. You can safely add 10% additional ingredients to your dog’s meal. This is a great way to reduce food waste at home. Always remember to check if ingredients are safe for your dog.
