A whole food diet for dogs & puppies

When transitioning to a wholefood diet for dogs and puppies, a quick switch is often the best option.
Many owners can simply stop feeding the current food and swap it for our whole food the following day.

If you have a new puppy, we do recommend keeping them on the food they’re used to during the first week. Moving home can be stressful for a young’un, and many can become picky eaters at this time. It’s best to let them settle before making the transition to whole food for puppies.

Likewise, while fresh veggies and raw meat tend to be a hit, some pooches may be resistant to change or have health concerns that need factoring in, such as digestive issues. In cases such as these, we recommend a gradual transition to a whole food diet.

If needed, you can begin the transition to whole food by cooking our dishes (if switching to our cookable range), still following the steps we outline below. Once your puppy or dog is on a full Hug diet, you can slowly reduce cooking time over seven days, until you’re serving meals straight out of the pack (this transition may take longer, for some canines).

Transitioning to a whole food diet for dogs & puppies

With puppies, once they’re ready, you can gradually introduce Hug to their current diet.
With adult dogs, start by mixing our whole food Hug with their current food.

We’re proud to offer the best whole food diet for dogs & puppies out there.

A whole food diet for dogs and puppies should include a variety of proteins, where possible. Each kind of meat contains different amino acids and therefore presents a different nutritional profile.

We offer mixed proteins in both our puppy and senior ranges, ensuring our raw diets for dogs deliver a whole host of nutritional benefits while remaining suitable for specific life stage needs.

Hygiene & storage

All Hug recipes are made using fresh whole food ingredients and cuts of meat that are suitable for human consumption. We do not use green tripe in Hug food, so it’s safe to handle in the kitchen and can be stored in your fridge or freezer.

Depending on how soon you would like to feed it, you can defrost Hug food in your fridge or at room temperature, keeping it cool once defrosted. The food is safe to keep refrigerated for 2 days once defrosted or cooked.

Check its temperature before serving, then transfer to your pet’s bowl for feeding. If you prefer, it can be fed straight out of the tub it arrives and is cooked in.
