How to Transition to Feeding Raw

In this very informative Part 3 video about feeding your pet a raw diet, Dr. Becker extensively talks about the actual transitioning of your pet’s diet.

She discusses the process and how-tos, how to help heal your pet’s digestive system, what changes to expect in bathroom habits, eating habits, and the general health and attitude of your pet during and after the feeding transition.

She gives lots of excellent examples, stories, and sound veterinary advice as expected!

A must watch!  Click here to read the transcript as well.


This Week’s Adoptable Pet

The lucky family that adopts one of the pets featured here on our blog will receive a coupon from HAWS good for a “congratulations” gift bag from End of the Leash!

To learn more about how to adopt through HAWS, please visit their adoption page.  You may also give them a call at 262.542.8851.

Click on Cylone’s photo to see his Petfinder.com profile!Cyclone from HAWS is featured here this week. 

My name is Cyclone—and maybe I think I should act like one—but I have a lot of potential!  I am a 4 yr old male Golden Retriever/Poodle mix that has a lot of energy and will need a special home. 

I am NOT the dog for a first time dog owner and I am NOT the calm dog that you might imagine a Golden/Poodle mix should be.  I am not fond of cats, and other dogs just get me upset; older teens might be fine as long as my new family has owned large, active dogs in the past and realizes the amount of training I will need (I need a lot of activities that will keep my body AND mind busy!). 

You will need to meet with a trainer before you take me home so you can learn how to continue what HAWS has started….my school lessons!!!  I am cute as can be, and ready for a firm, active owner who will help me be a great doggie!

Train your Best Friend @ HAWS who offers classes for puppies through adults. HAWS dogs get a special discount but all dogs are welcome.  Call 262-542-8851 ex 114 or email training@hawspets.org.
