HOW TO TRANSITION
This food is formulated for adult, non-reproducing dogs over one year old as puppies and pregnant or nursing mothers have special nutritional requirements. It is important to slowly transition your dog from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness® TruFood® each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness TruFood by day 7.
Nutrition is the foundation of wellbeing, but be sure to give your dog plenty of fresh water, love and exercise and visit your veterinarian regularly!
