How To Change Dog Food Quickly. Changing your dog’s food isn’t always a quick process but it can be made easier when you know why switching your dog’s food is the right thing to do. Let’s map out a menu for switching your dog food.

Give your dog their regular meal as normal. Keep them on separate plates or bowls and don’t mix the foods together yet. This allows for your dog’s digestive tract to adjust without suffering from stomach issues.

If You Feed Twice A Day, Give Your Dog Their Existing Food For Their Morning Meal.

The best method is to gradually change food over the course of a week. Feed 75% of your current (old) food and mix in 25% of the new food in each serving to start the adjustment period for clean digestion. The ratios should look something like this:

Changes To Your Dog’s Diet Should Be Made Gradually.

After that, your pet should be ready to go with their new diet. Not every dog is sensitive to food changes, and many will handle cold turkey changes without issue. Changing dog food too quickly often results in an upset stomach.

Start By Replacing A Small Amount Of Your Dog’s Food With The New Food, And Then Gradually Increase The Amount Of New Food (And Decrease The Amount Of Old Food) You Give Them.

But many won’t, and the upset tummies and loose stools that can come with changing foods too fast are such an annoyance (for the dog too!) that it makes sense just to change gradually, unless you know for certain that your dog has the sort of cast iron stomach that. Feed 3/4 of the normal amount of current food and add 1/4 of the new food. The trick is to mix your dog’s new food in with their old food.

Add 20% Of The New Food On The First Day And Then Add An Additional 20% Extra On The Rest Of The Consecutive Days.

Once you get the new cat food home, start by offering your cat a small meal. Skip the evening meal and provide only water until the next morning. Feed 3/4 of the new food and 1/4 the previous food.

Keep Them On Separate Plates Or Bowls And Don’t Mix The Foods Together Yet.

This gives your dog (and his stomach) a chance to adjust to the new food. Mixing in new foods only a bit each day while gradually increasing other foods over a week will give you a good chance to slow down the process. In fact, taking five to seven days to mix increasing amounts of the new brand of dog food in with decreasing amounts of the old brand reduces the chances that your dog will develop an upset stomach or refuse to eat.
