MAKING CHANGES TO THEIR DIET
Always make any dietary changes gradually. Sudden changes to the diet can cause tummy upsets. So, if you are either changing to a different recipe or changing to a new food, do so gradually over 4-5 days.
CHOOSE HEALTHY VARIETY
Unless your dog has digestive issues or is sensitive to certain ingredients, it’s a good idea to carefully introduce different recipes, so that they can enjoy a variety of ingredients in their diet – for both taste and nutrition.
