The best dog food for your beloved furbaby is ultimately up to you to decide. You may want to take into consideration your dog’s age, lifestyle, size, and specific nutritional needs. It also helps to know if your dog prefers beef over chicken, or wet food over kibble to make every mealtime fun and beneficial for them. It is also important to consult your veterinarian on any diet you may feed your pet.
If you are planning to introduce any new food into your pet’s diet, we recommend to do it over a transition period. When transitioning to a new pet food, do it slowly over a period of about 7–10 days, mixing an increasing amount of new food with old food each day. Start with 75% old food mixed with 25% new food for about three days. Then mix 50% old with 50% new for approximately three days. Then 75% new food, 25% old food for approximately three days. Then 100% new food for the last day of the transition period.
