When there is a need to change your pet’s diet, make sure to do it gradually to avoid adverse reactions. Here are some steps that you can take to avoid any problems when switching your pet over to a new pet food or way of feeding.
Give your pet’s body and digestive system time to adjust to the new diet. A new diet means your pet’s body is receiving a new nutrient formulation that can have an impact on the normal microbial population in the intestines. A new diet can have negative effect on the number and/or types of beneficial bacteria in the intestine, which can lead to gas formation or diarrhea. Making a more gradual change is needed to give the beneficial intestinal bacteria to adjust. It is recommended that diet changes should be made over a 1 week period or more. If your pet vomits, refuses to eat, suffers from gassiness, or has persistent diarrhea, call your veterinarian immediately. Additional information contact your vet clinic hiring.
