3 Tips to Safely and Comfortably Switch Your Dog’s Diet

 

Leading plant-based dog food company v-dog offers tips on making the switch to a new diet for your dog a breeze

V-dog, a leading dog food company committed to providing 100 percent vegan products, is offering advice to pet parents needing to switch their dogs’ diets but fearing a rocky transition.

There are many reasons a pet parent may elect to switch their dog’s food, including graduating a puppy to adult food, eliminating a discovered food allergy or simply to introduce a higher-quality brand of dog food. Whatever the reason, it’s always great to keep a few points in mind to most properly transition dogs to a new food.

“Even though dogs sometimes willingly eat some hilarious or terrible things, it’s important to best prepare their tummy for a smooth transition to their new food,” said Lindsay Rubin, vice president of v-dog. “A quick diet switch can lead to tummy troubles or other issues, so we urge all pet parents to be patient and ease their pups into the new diet over about a one-week period.”

Rubin and the v-dog team recommend the following tips for switching your dog’s diet in the most comfortable way possible:

  1. Know the ingredients. The pet food industry has a bad reputation for poor quality ingredients and by-products. When looking for a new brand, make sure the ingredients chosen are high-quality, allergen-friendly and that the company conducts third-party quality and nutrition testing. Most companies will answer your questions if you email their support email address or fill out the contact form on their site.
  2. Have a plan for the switch. Switching your dog’s diet gradually over the course of a week is usually the easiest transition for a dog. V-dog recommends starting on day one of the transition by mixing one-third of your dog’s old food with two-thirds of their new food, and gradually transition to 100 percent of the new food over a five- to 10-day period. This transition time gives the dog’s stomach more time to adjust to the new formula’s ingredients. During transition, a short period of soft stool can be normal, but be sure to consult your veterinarian if your dog experiences any lingering symptoms or changes in behavior towards the end of or after the transition.
  3. Consider an all-natural or plant-based diet. Studies show that most food-related allergies in dogs stem from animal products like beef and chicken. Since dogs are physiologically omnivores, they are able to digest and make excellent use of starch. A completely plant-based food has proven to be an excellent, nutritionally-dense solution for sensitive, allergy-prone dogs.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
