How to change your pet’s food gradually


If you decide to swap your pet’s food to a different brand, then please follow our recommended steps:

  • Change over your pet’s food gradually using the clock system. This means 3/4 of the old food, to 1/4 new food. Then 1/2 and 1/2, progressing to 3/4 of new food and 1/4 old food until on the new diet. This should take approximately 10 days.
  • We suggest you order your new food before your old food runs out to facilitate this swapping over period.
  • Be aware of allergies. If your pet has any allergies to certain proteins or ingredients, enquire before so your little one doesn’t face an upset stomach or skin.
