    Default Food transition question

    I am sure It has been posted before, tried during a search and didnt find exactly what I was looking for. Started transitioning old food with new food, going slow but wondering if there is a noticable change in stool when this is being done. Today is the seond day and noticed a little softer, but still formed and grainier.

    Don't worry about posting any question ever

    Yes you will likely notice a change in stool consistency as well as (open some windows!!!) smelling gas, until you are fully switched. It really depends on how sensitive their tummies are.

    Yes and if it gets too soft, go a tad slower on the transition. You can also add pure canned pumpkin (1Tbsp/day) to the food to help keep things firm. Just not the pie mixture, must be 100% pure pumpkin.

    Also..go slow! Over a 10 day to 2 week period..1/4 cup increase every couple days of new while decreasing the old food.

    Hello,

    Since the brands were not listed, your reason for switching was due to better new brand, better quality or health related issue.

    But just because you are switching to a different brand, this could actually be the cause for a new problem? If after 7-10 days you are still having issues, it COULD be the new FOOD?

    Also, only switch one thing at a time. Too many variables makes it too hard to pinpoint what is the cause.

    take it slowly,

    Good Day~

    I am so concerned about this when we adopt our bully this weekend. I was told she is eating lamb and rice, but no specifics as to brand (possibly Pro Plan). The food I fed our male bullmastiff who had horrible allergies is what we'll be trying, but it may be a rapid switch. Keep us in your thoughts this weekend as we turn her little world upside down--new home, new people, new food, etc.
