Question about switching flavors (same brand) dog food?
Hi there hoping I could get some advice..
Phoebe eats Halo dog food. Finally I have found a food she seems to like. However lately it seems like she could use a change in flavor. Halo makes 4 different flavors. They make a sampler pack with all four flavors so I am looking to see which one she seems to like. WHen doing this what is the best way to do it without upsetting her tummy. I know that when switching brands you do it gradually...Does the same go when switching flavors? Thanks in advance for any answers....

I think it all depends on the dog. Personally, Jackson doesn't really have a sensitive stomach so he doesn't have issues switching fast. Even when I did the mixing, he would always just pick out the new food anyways. Currently, we are feeding Acana Grasslands and Orijen Regional Red (both by same company) and we just do cold turkey switches.

i think it depends on the dog as well. but personally, i would rather be on the safe side and do it slowly. it's better to change it slowly then to give them upset tummy and have to clean their butt due to runny poop. (that would suck for you and your puppy)
