Food changes can be life changing for your dog. If there is a new food being introduced to your dog you do not want to make the changes quick and sudden, but gradually introduce the new food and taking away the old food over a period of time.
This guide can help you make these changes that will be best suited for the dogs’ stomach. To begin the transition, mix your dog’s current food with the new food. Gradually decrease the amount of the current food while increasing the amount of new food. Continue to do this over a 7-day period.
Although many dogs will readily eat a new food when it’s offered the first time, they may still experience side effects like vomiting, loose stool and flatulence (gas). Some dogs are finicky eaters and may be reluctant to try something new, especially when it’s offered suddenly.
