So last evening I fed Sergio about 3 ounces of the canned Wellness Salmon and Rice for dinner, instead of his usual Pro Plan kibble. No loose stools. He gobbled it up.
This morning, I gave him about 3 ounces of the canned again for breakfast instead of his Pro Plan.
I will most likely just feed him the canned based on recommendations here that is much better for him, and use the Wellness Salmon and Rice kibble for treats.
I have a few questions though about feeding him canned. He seems to eat it all within about 5 minutes or so, instead of "grazing" like he usually does on the kibble. Is that too quickly for him to eat it? He gobbles it up and soon as I put down the plate.
Is it more likely the novelty of new food that Sergio is enjoying? How long before he will not be so excited about the Wellness Salmon and Rice? Hopefully another two years!!
If he does eventually lose interest in the Salmon and Rice, is it a bad idea to feed him different flavors of the Wellness Simple Solutions, like maybe try the lamb and rice once or twice a week?
I thought I read somewhere that keeping the protein source (like just giving him Salmon) consistent meant it was less likely the dog will develop food allergies or sensitivities, that it's not a good idea to keep changing the food around.
