ALL OF OUR STORES WILL BE OPEN ON MATARIKI. SEE STORE HOURS HERE.
We advise against giving whole bones for 2 days prior to your pets procedure, and at least a week following the procedure.
As a short term bland diet, we recommend poached meat and bone broth for a few days following the procedure. Many pets will be okay with minced mixes, however these modifications are worth considering.
Please follow any alternative advice form your primary veterinarian, then chat to us about transitioning back to a raw diet.
Feed around 2% (or less) of bodyweight of poached meat. Puppies and kittens will require more. Monitor your pet’s weight, appetite, and stools.
After 3-4 days of poached meat and broth, we can consider gradually introducing a minced mix and progressing back to a maintenance raw food diet.
With poached meat and broth, stools are usually quite soft and jelly like. There shouldn’t be any straining to pass stools, and there are usually 1-2 per day. There may be no stools on some days. Keep track of your pets: energy levels, appetite, stools, wind, tummy rumbles, burping etc.
If there are any digestive concerns, during the recovery phase, please contact our team or your primary veterinarian. We may suggest probiotics and other digestive support.
