Most puppies and kittens can handle a transition to a raw food diet after weaning. Puppies and kittens can eat raw food just like an adult can, no matter the age or breed. The most important time to feed fresh food is when your pet is young. Great nutrition helps build a solid foundation, upon which your puppy or kitten can live long and prosper. Providing proper nutrition when feeding a growing puppy or kitten is very important to ensure they grow as healthy as possible.
