Q. We are switching our dog’s food. How should we handle the transition?
A. Treats Unleashed does not want your dog to experience any digestive issues when transitioning to a new food. We suggest that you do a gradual transition to the new food. Begin with a mixture of 25% of the new food and 75% of the old brand for three days then switch to 50/50. After three days you can move to 75% new/25% old to finish the transition. If, at any time, your dog has a loose stool or digestive upset, slow down the transition and step back to the previous mix for 2-3 days. A pumpkin supplement with probiotics can help the transition, too. The calorie count may be different between the foods. Be sure to feed only enough to maintain a slightly lean body mass.
