How To Properly Transition Your Pet's Food

It is important to switch the pet food gradually. Switching too fast can lead to upset stomach and in more serious cases, vomiting or diarrhea. Any time you decide to change your pet's food, you should make sure to do so gradually to give their system time to adjust to the change.

This is especially important when you are adopting a dog. It is highly advised that you stick to the same food that he was fed at the shelter.

To transition properly, mix your pet's current food with their new food. Over the next 7 days, you will gradually incorporate more and more of the new food by mixing it with your pet's current diet. If you're pet is particularly sensitive or prone to tummy aches, then it is best to do it over a period of 14 days.

Every pet is different. So the key to a good diet transition is to monitor your pet's response to the switch. If, at at point, your pet is showing concerning signs (vomiting, diarrhea, etc), it is best to proceed slowly.

*If you have followed these steps and your pet is still experiencing a stomach upset, kindly consult your veterinarian.
