    Default Switching over food

    I previously posted a question about a brand of dog food. But now it's time for me to start switching them. How much should I mix in throughout the week? I know it's a ratio but I wanted to make sure I'm right before I start tomorrow.
    Thanks a bunch in advance everyone

    Do a slow switch over at least a week.... 3/4 of the old and 1/4 of the new, then increase / decrease as the week goes on.

    as 2bullymama said we usually do a week mininum but some do a 10 days switch just to be sure. 3/4 old 1/4 new then 1/2 old 1/2 new then 3/4 new 1/4 old im sure you get the idea. be sure to watch for anything not agreeing with your bully along the way. allergies come in many forms such as red face, red paws, cysts, ear infections, and such. let us know how it goes.
