Day 1 – 3: Begin to introduce Open Farm food. Your pet’s bowl should consist of 75% old pet food & 25% Open Farm food.
Day 4 – 6: Increase your Open Farm feeding amount by 25%. Your pet’s bowl should consist of 50% old pet food & 50% Open Farm food.
Day 7 – 9: Almost there! Continue to increase your Open Farm feeding amount by another 25%. Your pet’s bowl should now consist of 25% old pet food & 75% Open Farm food.
Day 10: Your pet’s bowl should consist of 100% Open Farm food! Your furry friend is fully transitioned!
Once your pet has fully transitioned into one category of our food (i.e. Open Farm Dry Food), your pet can switch between any other flavor within that category without transition. If you’re looking to add our Freeze Dried Raw or Rustic Stews/Blends to your pet's diet, begin by implementing it as a topper first. It's a great way to introduce them to new foods and an even better way to satisfy those picky eaters! Remember to decrease the dry food feeding amounts accordingly to feeding guidelines, in order to avoid over feeding.
Not every pet can tolerate dietary changes and it is always best to consult your veterinarian before making any drastic changes. A transition period is different for all pets, so we encourage you to take your pet into consideration when planning on transitioning their food!
Our pets are flawless and their diets should be too!
