Switching Pet Foods

Some pets may be reluctant to give up what has looked, smelled and tasted familiar to them in the past.  To help make the transition easier to a new food, we recommend the following …

1.   When switching from one brand of dry food to another brand … gradually introduce the new food over a 5 to 10 day period.  Mix the new food product with the pet’s former food, gradually increasing the proportions until it is only the new food is fed.

2.   When switching from canned to dry food … we recommend the following approach: Add warm water to the dry food, let stand for 10 minutes, then mix thoroughly to make a gravy-like consistency.

3.   When switching pet foods in general … the pet may experience some loose stools and/or gassiness, which is completely normal.  This condition will disappear after the pet has become accustomed to the new food, which is generally in 3 to 7 days.

From our experience, we have found that not only do pets find The Pet Pantry all natural pet foods very palatable, but actually prefer it to many other brands. Providing your pet a well-balanced and nutritional pet food is a key to their health.
