Thaw out desired number of sliders or patties. Don’t forget to do that ahead! Feed only when completely thawed, never feed frozen food to your pet as this will be very hard for your pet to digest. Also, do not microwave smallbatch as it will cause your product to lose most of the nutritional benefits for your pet.
You can place sliders or patties in a container and defrost overnight in your refrigerator. Give a designated amount to your pet. Follow the amounts provided by the chart below.
It is suggested that you feed our pet between 2-3% of their body weight. Feed them 2% if they need to lose weight or 3% if they are in good shape. For puppies, kittens, nursing mothers, or if they endure rigorous activity and exercise, feed them 4-5% of their body weight.
Based on 2.5% of body weight.
*Please keep in mind that these are just recommendations. Things to consider are, level of activity, age, health, metabolism etc. These all play a part in the necessary feeding quantities of your pet. We suggest you monitor your pet’s dietary needs and adjust portions accordingly.
Cats & Dogs:
5lbs. | 2 sliders a day
10lbs. | 4 sliders a day

It is very important to make a transition from one food to another, It is also important to remember that smallbatch is raw food; it cannot be left out like kibble, no grazing.
Likewise, it is important for your own health to practice safe food-handling protocol. Wash your hands, and any utensils or surfaces that come in contact with raw food with hot water and soap.
replace 1 oz. (or 2 tbls) with 1 oz. of smallbatch
replace 2 oz. (or 4 tbls) with 2 oz. of smallbatch

During the entire transition period, it is important to the well-being of your animal to remain patient and resist the urge to diverge from the transition program. Give your animal lots of love and attention.
Take extra care to monitor your companion, making sure that their behavioral patterns and stool are normal. If there is a little blood in their stool, this is no cause for alarm, it’s an indication that a detoxification process is occurring.
The process will vary with each animal.
If blood is profuse or continues for more than 5 days, please discontinue the transition. If you experience any difficulty or have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to email or call us at (415)410-8666.
