For many pets, transitioning diets over the course of ten days is sufficient, but some may need a little more patience and time.
Our step-by-step guide will help ensure you and your pet are set up for success.
If you have any questions, our Customer Care team is happy to help, although please remember that talking to us is not a substitute for speaking directly to your veterinarian. They are the expert who knows your pet and understands their medical needs best.

If your pet refuses to eat, develops vomiting, diarrhea, or excessive gas, or experiences constipation, it maybe that the transition is happening too quickly for them. Please contact your veterinary team to ensure there are no concerns, and then, if appropriate, try making the transition to the new food more gradually.
