Is PetFIT Safe?

FAQ

Our high quality, USDA human-grade ingredients are obtained from farms. These are the same farms that stock your local grocers, supermarkets and preferred restaurants. As we practice strict control on our raw food quality, we hold our suppliers to the same standard.

We never partner with suppliers that selling low grade meat e.g. mechanically separated meat which produced by machines that crush animal carcasses under extreme pressures to obtain any leftover meat. These animals usually sourced from unknown farms and potentially undesirable or unfit for human consumption.

Many raw pet food suppliers use this as part of their ingredients due to cheaper cost and still claim their food is human grade and raw. Raw food produced with these meat usually have an very fine “mushy” texture, are pale in colour, and in some circumstances have such a high calcium content that they produce chalky stools. We believe that the better quality of ingredients that we choose and used to produce PetFIT raw, the better quality of life of the animals are.

If you are first time transitioning to raw, please visit our transition page for more information. We always recommend starting with single protein and once they are fully transitioned then only introduce a new protein to your pet. The best protein to start is the one that’s in their current diet. For puppy and kitten, we recommend starting with our chicken recipe. After fully transition, rotating 3-5 protein to your pet to prevent certain food allergy.

Our meals are complete and balanced, that it provides all required nutrients and meet the NRC requirements for dogs and cats. Supplements like multivitamin is not necessary. However, we suggest to add probiotics eg yogurt, goat milk ( if they are lactose tolerant) or fermented kefir occasionally to your pet to boost gut health.

We also recommend bone broth for pets. Bone broth is great for canine joints and helps relieve arthritis in senior pets. The gelatin contain collagen full of proline and glycine which is important to joint health. Bone broth is also a fantastic nutritional support for sick animals. Please check our shop for PetFIT bone broth.

Benefits for other natural superfoods like sweet potato powder, egg yolk powder and etc can be also found in our shop. Please visit shop for details.

We recommend thawing PetFIT sticks in your refrigerator /chiller overnight. If you forgot to thaw overnight, you could thaw our stick in a tub with lid and submerge in cold water. Change the cold water every 30 minutes until thaw. We do not recommend thawing food on the counter or in the microwave.
Our objective is for the food to be consumed as near to production as possible, but they are best consumed by 4-6 months in the freezer.
We recommend using our product within 48 hours of thawing in the refrigerator/chiller. It’s a main reason why we pack in smaller sizes!

It is normal. The over spill in our BARF is a liquid protein called myoglobin, generally mistaken as blood.

Myoglobin’s job is transport oxygen to muscles for cellular function and energy. Do not throw it away and just pour it over their meal.

No. Study from Mugford 1987 has proven that feeding raw meat can calm dogs and making them more suitable to be around young kids, than dogs on dry food. In addition, study also has shown that feeding meat and raw bones release dopamine in the dog. This is why we see raw fed dogs can be so energetic and playful when switch to raw.

It is important to differentiate between energetic and aggressive, and normal play mouthing and mouthing that leads aggressive behaviour.

If your pet is displaying aggression, the first thing is to rule out the medical conditions e.g. acute or chronic pain, seizures, neurological disorders or hypothyroidism. If your pet don’t exhibit any signs of these conditions, then you can rule out the medical conditions.

Secondly, diet low in tryptophan have been revealed to cause anxiety, aggression and depression. If you are feeding a homemade diet or raw that does not supply enough amounts of the essential amino acid tryptophan, aggression in your pet can be seen. Thus, it is recommend to pick a balanced diet for your pet to prevent tryptophan deficiency. Our BARF includes quality lean muscle meat and offal that provide a sufficient amount of tryptophan amino acid.

Thirdly, because raw diet is generally a high value resource, your pet may show resource guarding behaviour when fed a raw diet. Not all pets will show. Common resource guarding behaviours are fast eating, hiding to eat, vocalization, growling or hovering body over food. This behaviour can be avoided with feeding routines modifications.  For example, allowing your pet to eat completely alone in quiet and calm environment. Do not force your pet to the point where they feel the need to involve in these actions. Training is also a key to success. Pet parents need to help build trust with the pet when their raw food is present. So they will know that your presence is non-threatening.

You can start transitioning your puppy/kitten to a raw diet as early as 8 weeks. Puppy and kitten need to be deworm every 2 weeks until they are 3 month old and every month until they are 6 month old and then every 3 months for the rest of their life.

Although studies has shown just adding as little as 20% raw can reduce the risk of allergies. We recommend to feed a full raw diet in long term in order to reap all the raw benefits.

Some people rotate between raw, freeze-dried, kibble for their pets but just to be careful not to have sudden change of diet as it may upset your pet tummy. Also to be careful of overfeeding if you are topping your pet meal with other types of food. See transition to raw for more information.
