Very slow transition is best.A food rep told me that he puts a tablespoon of pumpkin in each serving during the transition is a big help also.
    Our baby Amy is still on Fromm Puppy in the Pink bag.
    In my very little experience, I agree with you totally! The whole 'grains and chicken' was my reason for choosing NVI, and LID because I have no idea what this baby is allergic to, so figured less is better, and I can add and take away other items from her diet. I've been giving her yogurt in the morning, and she loooves it! Then added the NVI LID Beef canned, just a tablespoon mixed with the dry, and she loves it, too. I wanted to give her a little extra or variant because I tried giving her strawberries, bananas, and apples, and she snorted at them...hah!
    I do so wish I had've slowed it down a bit, it was about a 7 day process with the initial changeover, then slowly added the yogurt, but she just seemed like she felt so much better. She wasn't near as lethargic, etc. If I have to change her again, it'll be a much more knowledgable, slower process!
    And thank you so much for sharing your advice and experience with me! It is ALWAYS appreciated!

    Sounds like you are doing well and have thought out what will work best for your baby. I only relate what has worked for us as a comparison because I know how different they can be. We also add a few supplements to their diets such as cranberry pills as a preventative to UTI but first it is necessary to get their main diet settled in place before adding.

    Awesome! See, I was wondering about supplements ie. cranberry, fish oil, something for joints, but didn't know if it was a good idea to do that now or wait or what? Any recommendations for a good joint supplement? And dosage recommendations for the cranberry or fish oil or some type of oil for her skin and coat?

    Thanks so much to you guys! We appreciate your kindness! I do also wanna say that the breeders we adopted Em from were really nice and seemed honest...I think she just kinda took a backseat to the babies. They also said they couldn't give her the attention that she needed and deserved. Maybe I'm being nice, but I respected their honesty. And am grateful to them for letting us have this baby...there were loads of people wanting her, but lucky for us, we got chosen! Anywho, I just wanted to share a lil more about them.
    But, again, thanks, and hugs to you all!

    I give my gang a joint supplement called Regenex and you can purchase it on Amazon. It's liquid form and put it on the food daily, I keep mine in the fridge

    I'm glad you joined us and we appreciate the thanks for being able to help you and Emma. You're a good mum for taking her in and coming here.
