As a pet owner, you are required to change your pet’s diet at some point of time. Many times you have to change your pet’s diet due to an illness or just due to embracing a new life
stage that calls for a different diet. This is why pet stores have different sections for puppy food and adult dog food. Different nutrient requirements are needed for your pets at their different growth stages.
Here are a few tips that will help transition your pet cat or dog’s diet in the mildest and stress-free way:
- Take gradual steps to change your pet’s diet instead of switching to their new food abruptly, as the latter often results in upset pet stomachs, resulting in diarrhoea and other possible stomach issues.
- During this period make sure to keep a constant eye on your pet to notice any change of behaviour, so that you always in the know of how they are reacting to a changed diet.
- Give your pet a time of at least 7 days before completely switching them to a new diet.
- If you have changed your pet’s diet due to an illness or a health condition, make sure to get them checked at a vet clinic soon.
