How to integrate from your existing food to nourish
4 tips when integrating our food
Use a gradual transition: Introduce the new food progressively over a four-day period by mixing it with your pet’s previous food. Begin with a proportion of about 25% new food to 75% previous food. Gradually increase the amount of new food and decrease the amount of previous food until you are feeding only the new diet.
Maintain normal feeding patterns: Feed your dog or cat at the same time each day and in the same area. Use the same bowl, and avoid making abrupt changes to feeding routines.
Enhance appeal: If your pet tends to be finicky about new foods (this is especially common with some cats), you can boost the appeal of the new food by mixing a little warm water with the food or by initially hand feeding a few pieces (i.e., providing it as a “treat”). If you mix food with water, discard any uneaten portion after 20 minutes to prevent spoilage.
Do not worry about a missed meal: Some pets pick out their former diet in the mix, leaving the new diet, while others may pick out the new food! In either case, continue mixing the two diets. Some especially sensitive dogs and cats may initially consume only a portion of their meal or refuse to eat. A healthy dog or cat can miss one or two meals or eat a little less with no ill effects. If more than two meals are refused, consider trying a different food. If you are concerned about your pet’s health, contact your veterinarian.
