Basic recommendations for changing your pet’s food from brand to brand or from certain ingredients to others.
It is important to know that even if you are switching from one of the poorest quality dog or cat foods to one of the highest quality available, your pet may experience digestive distress. This can come in the form of gas, diarrhea, soft stool or vomiting. This happens because dogs and cats have very small and sensitive digestive systems that can shock very easily when a change in diet is made abruptly. The human small intestine is about 24 to 26 feet in length.
