What type of feeder are you?

Written 5 months ago
It’s up to you! You can decide to make a straight switch (we would call you an ‘All Change’ feeder) or add an occasional boost of nutrients to dry or wet food ‘Now and Then’.

‘All Change’ feeding

If you’re ready to change from old food today, to yummy Poppy’s Picnic tomorrow - then you’re an All Change feeder. Regardless of their previous diet, like Poppy, most dogs won’t need encouragement to eat something new, so you can start feeding our Mince or Meatballs straight away. 

How much to feed your dog will depend on their age, weight and activity levels. As a rule, adult dogs being fed a raw-only diet need 2-3% of their body weight every day in food. For example, dog weighing 10 kg should be fed 200-300g a day. 

Use the Meal Calculator on our homepage to have the paw-rithmetic done for you, or alternatively contact our friendly VIP (Very Important Paws) team who will happily help: 01380716599 or woof@poppyspicnic.co.uk.

‘Now and Then’ feeding

Our products are easy to feed and a breeze to fit into your lifestyle. Simply introduce an occasional boost of nutrients with our tasty Poppy’s Picnic Meatballs - super convenient, and easy to add to any bowl of food. 

You can use our raw food to supplement your dog’s dry or wet diet by simply reducing some of their regular meal to allow for the nutritious raw food. Just replace two tablespoons of dry or wet food with 1 Meatball and repeat to feed as many Meatballs as you like! Our raw food is nutritionally superior to most dry or wet foods so less is needed. Remember, even a little boost of nutrients is better than none! Here’s how you can get started:

  • Take out the number of Meatballs you need from the pack to defrost in the fridge the night before, and put the remaining meatballs back in the freezer
  • We recommend taking the meatballs out of the fridge 20 minutes before feeding as your dog might not like the coldness of refrigerated food
  • Feed as many Meatballs as you like, by removing 2 tablespoons of their usual meal, and replacing with 1 Poppy’s Picnic Meatball and repeating as desired 
  • Alternatively, you can also feed a Meatball as a tasty midday treat (just make sure you account for it in their daily meal allowance)
  • Easy and waste-free. It really is THAT simple!
