    Default How long till a reaction

    Ok... my husband and I found out that the food we were feeding our bully was NOT good for him, so we changed it to a (I believe) 5 star dogfood. Of course he had the itchy, flakie skin, eye boogers, itchy paws etc... so my question is... how long does in normally take to see changes in their health? We have only had him on the new food for about 5 days.

    Thanks for the info y'all

    Hello,
    good that you swtiched over. Hopefully you switched over slowly? If not, don't go back and swtich again.
    Swtiching dog food needs to take place over a period of days to avoid causing digestive problems. Check out other posts here about that.
    As for the results of changing, that will take time. Be mindful of changes in stool first for any other problems. Along with stiching over to a premium dogfood, there are still other concerns that might also be causing problems. For now, mild shampoos and hot spot products will help.

    Are you using a metal bowl? Washing often?

    it does take time to get skin and coat back in shape, just be patient and keep track of what changes you make and the results. Start a journal.

    Good Day~

    we switched Duke to NVI beef formula.. I would say we really began to see improvement in 5-6 weeks. he even looks better ( his build ).. and no more ear gunk! in the beginning he had to adjust and had soft poo for a while.. now he is fine.. its been about 10 weeks. hope this helps!

    Hello,

    Metal bowls are best for water and food. Easier to clean, no allergic to metal !

    Good Day~

    Samson had a bad reaction to a new food recently and it took over a month for him to get back to himself. I would say it could take 1-2 months for you to see noticable results, it's definitely not a quick thing.

    When I switched Vegas from the crappy Iams I was feeding him over a year ago, he had bad yeast, ear infections and stunk so bad he even had open sores! I switched him to a grain/gluten free NVI Salmon, I noticed within 5 weeks! No smell, soft skin, no ear infections, no sores, and no yeast!! It is amazing what a good food can do for your babies!!
