#1 STARTING THE TRANSITION
The key to a successful transition is the timing. Indeed, this is the key to a successful change of diet. If the transition is too abrupt, there is a risk of diarrhoea and weight loss, and your pet's health may be compromised. To avoid this, we recommend that you make the transition over a minimum of 8 days.
Before starting, make sure you have enough kibble to last the duration of the transition. If this is not the case, you should postpone it.
If you have enough food to cover the transition period, start to gradually incorporate the new food into the old. If you have been feeding your dog once a day, this is also a good opportunity to split the daily feed into two portions, one in the morning and one in the evening. This will enable your dog to better assimilate the kibble thanks to the smaller portions. However, do not change from two feedings to one, as this would be too sudden a change for your dog.
Each day, increase the dose of the new food incrementally.
After a week, your dog will start to get used to the new food. You should be on 50% of the old food and 50% of the new food.
