Ensuring a Smooth Transition

Cats are inherently more suspicious of changes to their environment compared to dogs. This means making a successful transition to a new food requires a greater level of time and patience. 


For cats fed dry food, we first suggest a very gradual change to our lightly steamed pouches of real meat before making the full transition to frozen raw nuggets. 


 
We recommend the ‘two bowl technique’

  • Place a single defrosted nugget in a separate bowl beside the normal portion of food 
  • Repeat at every meal until they begin to show an interest, this often takes 1-2 weeks 
  • Slowly reduce the previous food while increasing the number of nuggets 
  • Be patient, it is normal for this process to take as long as 8 weeks 


Important points to remember:

  • Always defrost thoroughly, cats prefer food closer to room temperature
  • Do not allow you cat to starve themselves, this can lead to liver problems in some cases
  • Always try to vary flavours of foods given to prevent latching onto one variety
  • Be patient, cats are highly suspicious of change
