    Default Could I change the food now?

    I was so pleased that Bubu did great job on his poop recently. Again, thank you guys for providing valuable suggestions!!!
    By the way, he got Natural Balance Ultra Premium Formula, I have read many thread these days, and I want to change his food to Fromm, I am wondering is it a good time to change his food? or should I wait for several weeks since he just recover from the upset stomach?

    if you are going to change I would suggest just doing the slow transition over the 7 to 10 days so it won't cause any digestive issues...good luck hope the change goes smooth.

    As bulldogs4me stated... you can change, but be sure to do the slow transition mixing the old with the new lessening the old over the 7-10 days.

    Good luck and keep us posted ---- he is gorgeous

    I switched my two to Fromms when they were 8 months old, I mixed 2/3 of the old food to 1/3 of the Fromms, and then 1/2 and 1/2, the next week , and then all Fromms. It's been a month since the switch, and they are both doing really well on it. They had loose stools, but not diarrhea for the first couple of days, then normal. Blossom is my sensitive baby, her brother has a cast iron tummy, lol, and she has problems with her skin, she is all white, so she shows her sensitivity. She gets pink ears, chin, eyes, and teary eyes when on Royal Canin, Go Natural, and Fromms Gold Puppy. I suspect it's the chicken and grains that she is susceptible to. The Fromms Beef Fritata, is beef, and no grains, and she seems good with this. Good luck

    I would wait a couple weeks now that you have his tummy settled. I think it's a bit too soon since he just got over the poopies.

    I think I would wait a few weeks also, just to be on the safe side.

    He is doing really great, after we change his food to fromm, he had really firm stool right now. I have one more question that could I offer him some supplements such as liquid Calcium or salmon oil in his food now(he is 15 wks)? If I can, could you recommend some products to me?
