Diet transition the fail safe process to premium pet foods

24 Jul 2018 By admin

Great news you have decided to feed your pet premium pet food we have set out a fail safe process to minimise upset stomach and a stress free changeover process for both Pet and owner.

Here at Tasmanian Animal Supplies have set to a process that will help your pet to enjoy premium pet food that has all the goodness they deserve. Tasmanian Animal Supplies are not vets this is simply a process we have used over time when changing our pets diets which has never failed and we wanted to pass on a easy fail safe process for you and your pet.

step 1. ensure you have enough food for 2 weeks that you are feeding your pet now . feed 25% new premium food & 75% of normal diet this should be continued for 3 days. Monitor toilet and when you are have that your pet is eating normally and there stools are solid and normal you are ready for the next step.

step 2. feed 50% new premium food & 50% of normal diet this should be continued for 3 days. Monitor toilet and when you are have that your pet is eating normally and there stools are solid and normal you are ready for the next step.

step 3 feed 75% new premium food & 25% of normal diet this should be continued for 3 days. Monitor toilet and when you are have that your pet is eating normally and there stools are solid and normal you are ready for the final step.

step 4. feed 100% of new premium diet this should be monitored for 3 days . If after 3 days you see any signs of stools loose after closely monitoring after they have been to the toilet repeat step 3 they may just need a bit more time when happy go onto 100% new diet feeding the new premium food.

If you are simply changing brands and your pet has been on premium food your process will be very simple and we would still suggest to complete step one as a straight switch may be too much .

Keep in mind our pets have small stomaches and the slightest change can affect them but a slow process will help you change from a low grade supermarket brand to a high premium brand (even for the picky eater).

Unlike humans our pets are happy to be fed the exact same flavour /diet for there whole life . This process that has helped us many times over when changing our pets diet.
