When changing foods, why is it important to transition slowly?

December 16, 2014

Pets are usually fed the same food for a long period of time. Transitioning to a new diet can be difficult on some pets’ digestive systems. Common digestive symptoms due to transition include diarrhea, loose stools and vomiting. Transitioning slowly from an old diet to a new one will reduce the risk of your pet experiencing these digestive problems.

Transitioning to Nutrience is quite simple. Start with a proportion of 25% Nutrience to 75% old food. Slowly change the proportions over the next 5 to 7 days by gradually increasing the amount of Nutrience and decreasing the amount of the old food.
