When switching your dog to a new food, it’s easy to cause digestive upset… and then unfairly blame the new diet.
This is especially common when you’re…
- Changing feeding type
- Moving from kibble to wet food
- Switching to fresh dog food
- When using diet rotation
So, what’s the best way to switch to a new food without making your dog sick?
Reduce your dog’s risk of digestive upset
In the video below…
Dr. Gary Richter shares a simple feeding tip that can help lower your dog’s risk of getting sick when you switch to a new food.
It’s best to switch your dog to a new food… gradually.
Start by mixing 20% “new” with 80% “old” food. Then, slowly increase that amount to a full 100%… over the next 8 to 9 days.
|Schedule||Old Food||New Food|
|Days 1 and 2||80%||20%|
|Days 3 and 4||60%||40%|
|Days 5 and 6||40%||60%|
|Days 7 and 8||20%||80%|
