1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Switching between 2 flavors of TOTW food   Thu Oct 04, 2012 11:05 am

I am going to be switching Nikko over to Taste of the Wild soon, and I was wondering:

Would it be OK to switch flavors of the same brand/type of food without gradually mixing it in, or it is recommended to do it over the course of a week?

I am going to start him out on the High Prairie flavor, but thought I could maybe alternate each bag between that and the Pacific Stream flavor so he doesn’t get bored of his food. I also don’t want to cause him to get the runs either.

Wondering if anyone else does this with their food.

Switching between different formulas in the same brand is no different from switching between formulas of different brands. You are still switching between totally different protein sources and ingredients. How long you take to transition will depend on your individual dogs. If they can handle a cold turkey switch then there's nothing wrong with doing that, if they require a more gradual switch because they have sensitive tummies then that will be what you need to do.

this has been brought up in the past if you want to search it, but i have found with my 2 that have no tummy issues that switching flavors in the same brand is fine

Thanks, I found the post and it looks like people have had mixed results, and I could be creating a picky eater by doing that. Besides, I already switched Yukon to TOTW High Prairie and he seems to be doing very well on that food, so I might as well stick to the same formula.
