Making the Switch: Our Guide to Safely Switching Dog Foods

Making the Switch: Our Guide to Safely Switching Dog Foods

We’ve had family, friends and prospective pallaby members share their concerns about the infamous dog food switch… Am I mixing the right amount of old and new food? What if my dog is a picky eater or has a sensitive stomach? 

If you’re asking yourself these questions, congratulations, you’re already making a thoughtful effort to ensure that your pup transitions safely!

There are plenty of good reasons to change your dog’s food. Sometimes they develop allergies to certain vegetables or proteins. Maybe your vet recommended a different brand. Or maybe their diet can benefit from a higher quality recipe. 

Whatever your reason, with a little help from our transition guide, the switch doesn’t have to be a source of concern. Instead, you can feel confident about how to approach changing your dog’s nutritional plan.

Keep an eye on your dog as it transitions and if any digestive symptoms occur, go back to the previous blend for 2-3 days, then resume the schedule. 

If you’re a new pallaby member, you may have some extra pouches left over at the end of the month, depending on how quickly your dog transitions to our food. Hold onto them! Left sealed, they are good for up to 12 months.
