We have all been in the position where we have had to switch our dog’s food. Whether it is because you want to try something different or because your current food isn’t sitting right with your dog, the switch needs to be gradual.Switching too quickly can cause an upset stomach or diarrhea.
When switching your dog’s food do it over about a 14 day period.
- Days 1-5 mix ¾ of the original food and ¼ of the new food
- Days 6-10 mix the original food and new food ½ and ½
- Days 11-15 mix ¼ of the original food and ¾ of the new food
Do keep it mind that this mixing schedule is only a guideline. If your dog has a sensitive try stretching it out to 7 days before the new mix.
