How And When To Switch From Puppy To Adult Dog Food

To help your dog's digestive tract adjust, gradually go from puppy to adult dog food. How and when to switch

 Start by adding a little new adult dog food to your puppy's meal. Use 25% new and 75% old food.

1 Gradual Change

Over 7-10 days, gradually add new food and eliminate old food. Keep an eye out for diarrhoea or vomiting in your dog.

2 Check Digestion

The transition phase should end with your dog eating 100% of the new adult dog food.

3 Full Transition

To promote growth, puppy food contains more protein and fat. Adult dog food offers special nutrient levels for maintenance. Make sure your dog's adult food matches its nutritional needs.

4 Nutritional Needs

Contact your vet if you're unsure when or how to move your puppy to adult food or if your dog has health issues. They can tailor advice to your dog's breed, age, and condition.
