Taste of the Wild....

Seems like I saw someone post this but I can't find it now....seems like they said you could switch back and forth between the different "flavors" w/out causing tummy upset and w/out transitioning slowly....anyone actually tried this??

I give my dogs Orijen dry All Life Phases as their basic food, they usually get about two tablespoons of wet also, I switch off (I never use fish in summer too stinky) sometimes human, sometimes high quality wet, sometimes freeze dried raw, my guys do not have any upsets from this. I have used Taste of the Wild. You can get high quality foods where I live just not the same brand all of the time as for the dry I buy the large it lasts a long time for two Hav's. My guys have never had a problem but it does depend on the dog.

I switched from their Pacific flavor to the High Prarie, but I did give them a little of both for a few days, as I made the switch. They didn't have any problem, but I guess that doesn't exactly answer your question. Sorry!

I was thinking of switching to this for Momo, but, was unsure of what others are doing. Thanks for asking the question!

Donnie, Momo and Ume's mom and loving it!

I switched to fish for one meal and Zoey had to have several but baths. We feed Acana it comes in a bunch of flavors. Our distributor only has adult food but the protein content is good for a puppy although mine were 12 mo and 10 mo when I changed.I think it is the same manufacture as Orijan?

Don't know about switching flavors. My two youngest (a bit over a year) were in the teen age, run off the weight and slightly thin, stage. I'd read feeding TOTW would be good to get some weight on them as they'd eat a bit more. I did't try the fish one as I'd had some digestive problems with fish products in the past and went with the Bison and Venison. They gobble this up and are in much better weight now. When they get older, and play a little less hard, I'll probably switch them to what I feed my others. I think this is a good product.

I use TOTW. Haven't switched flavors yet with my puppy but she loves the Bison and Venison flavor. I'm hoping to get my other hav on this brand so they can both be on the same food. I'll be interested to hear how your dog reacts to the flavor switch.

My two like the lamb flavor. Didn't care for the salmon flavor as much, and it seemed like Augie was chewing his feet on that one.

Yes, I've switched from fish to lamb with no issues. Usually when I'm at the bottom of the container (maybe a day or two left) I mix it with an equal amount the new stuff, so they have a day or two of both. It's not scientific I assure you!

Mine seem to have iron stomachs, though, so it'll depend on your dog. Giving it a couple of days is probably easier than cleaning up if things go awry...

Thanks for the posts...better safe than sorry lol I'm going to "transition" as if I were changing brands rather than just changing.......they seem to really like TOTW and have done really well on it....just thought I'd try a different flavor for them......
