Diet transition
Nutrition check – Diet transition

It is wise to proceed slowly when offering your pet a new food. Introducing something new into the diet could cause food refusal or trigger minor gastro-intestinal problems. We suggest a 7-day transition. Here's how to go about it:

Proportion of each food:


Day 1
Day 2
Day 3
Day 4
Day 4
Day 5
Day 6
Former diet
 75 %  75 %  50 %  50 %  25 %  25 %  -
New diet
 25 %  25 %  50 %  50 %  75 %  75 %  100 %

If your pet has a particularly sensitive digestive system, this transition can be prolonged.

Note: If your pet refuses to eat, don't let more than 24 hours go by without consulting your veterinarian.

Tips for increasing food acceptance:

  • Moisten kibble with warm water for a stronger aroma and taste.
  • Offer kibble by hand so your pet sees it as a treat.
