When switching your dog's diet, we recommend transitioning from the current diet to our Fat Dogs Formula over a 10 day period. Replace 10% of the current diet with our Fat Dogs Formula each day until they are fully transitioned. If you do not have any of your current formula to mix, reduce the amount of Fat Dogs Formula fed for the first few days, feeding smaller more frequent meals and increase over time. Do not free feed.
