Isn't it time you offered Keen to your dog?
Keen, although designed as a high quality low cost food, has not compromised in any way to the quality of the food used. It is still a standalone formula or can be used to supplement any homemade food diets that your pet currently enjoys. If raw dehydrated food is a different form of food than the one your beloved companion currently enjoys, then it is important to help your pet successfully make the switch to this new type of food.
If your pet is already on a raw food diet, then hydrate Keen and just mix the new food into the dog’s normal food. For other pets that are on commercial dry kibbles or canned dog foot, then it is better to take several days to a week to help them make the switch.
Start with mixing a little bit of hydrated Keen with the regular dry or canned food. On the next meal, add a little more. Keep doing this until you are feeding equal parts of both kinds of food. Then slowly increase the amount of Keen and decrease the amount of the commercial food. By making the transition slow, your dog's intestinal flora will adapt in a much better way and the dog will be able to digest food more easily. Once you are feeding straight Keen, then we suggests that you add up to a ½ cup of the dog's favorite meat, vegetable or fruit to the mixture.
For each dry measured cup of Keen, mix 1 to 1 ½ cups of warm water. After stirring well, let sit for 5 - 10 minutes for the mixture to hydrate. It will resemble oatmeal or a stew when ready to serve. At this point, you can mix in your pet's favorite foods. Serve right away. If the dog doesn't finish the serving, be sure to pick up the remainder and refrigerate until the next meal. If there is any food remaining after 48 hours, discard.
When mixed properly, the following yields should be seen:
|1 cup (4 oz.)||Makes about 1 lb of fresh food|
|16-17 cups (4 lbs)||Makes about 16 to 17 lbs of fresh food|
|40-43 cups (10 lb box)||Makes about 40 to 43 lbs of fresh food|
Following the guidelines listed below, to determine the appropriate amount of this new dog food to optimize your dog’s diet. The following daily amounts can be adjusted to suit the variations of breed, age and level of activity as required for each dog. Also, the amount of additional food can be adjusted to accommodate a day that is ‘very active’ for the dog to maintain health and fitness levels. If the dog weighs -
|Dog's Weight||Less Active||Very Active|
|Up to 10 lbs||1/2 Cup||1 Cup|
|Up to 30 lbs||1 Cup||2 Cups|
|Up to 50 lbs||2 Cups||4 Cups|
|Up to 70 lbs||2 1/4 Cups||4 1/2 Cups|
|Up to 90 lbs||2 3/4 Cups||5 1/2 Cups|
