What are the recommended serving and handling guidelines?

  • Always keep raw food frozen until ready to thaw for serving, then thaw gradually in the refrigerator.
  • Once thawed, food must be fed within 72 hours (and stored in the refrigerator).
  • If you are going to refreeze, do so within 24 hours of thawing. 
  • Keep raw meat and poultry separate from other foods. 
  • Wash working surfaces, utensils, and serving bowls after using. 
  • Wash hands after touching raw meat or poultry.
  • Because of the perishable nature of raw dog food, if your pet does not eat all presented food within 30 minutes, discard or refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
  • Keep raw meat and poultry away from children.  

How to transition to feeding a raw dog food diet?

We recommend following these transition guidelines:

  • Days 1-4: Feed 25% Albright's with 75% old food.
  • Days 5-8: Feed 50% Albright's with 50% old food.
  • Days 9-12: Feed 75% Albright's with 25% old food.
  • Day 13+: Go all Albright's!

Please Note: This is just a recommendation. Some dogs are able to transition more quickly or slowly. It's always best to pay attention to how your dogs are responding to the transition, how sensitive their stomach is, if they are picky eaters, etc.

Other Transition Tips:

  • Start with one type of protien.
  • Transition more slowly with older dogs.
  • Dogs already eating raw can typically transition more quickly.
  • Dogs with sensitive stomachs typically need to transition more slowly.
  • If your dogs stool becomes loose, slow down the transition.
  • Limit treats during the transition.
