In recent weeks, Chico Pet Shops have added products from the Performatrin Ultra range to their large inventory of cat and dog food products. Whatever the reasons that lead a pet owner to change his food. For this transition to go smoothly, there are some important recommendations to follow to ensure that the introduction of a new food recipe is positive for the animal.
There are several reasons why a pet owner may decide to change his pet’s diet, food allergies, health problems and the composition of bottom-up recipes.
The change in your cat or dog’s diet should last at least 8 to 10 days. Mix the new food with the usual food, gradually increasing the share of the new food.
HERE’S THE RIGHT METHOD TO INTRODUCE A NEW FOOD
- The first two days: The bowl (bowl of food) should contain 1/4 of the new food and 3/4 of the usual food.
- Days 3 to 5: The bowl should contain 1/2 of the new food and 1/2 of the usual food.
- Days 6 to 8: The bowl should contain 3/4 of the new food and 1/4 of the usual food.
- From the9th day: The bowl will contain 100% of the new food
In addition, pay attention in the first days to the behavior and appetite of the pet.
