I'm a bit mystified by all this slow transition stuff; if dogs are, from an evolutionary point of view, scavengers and omnivores, one might think they were better adapted to chop and change? I appreciate that they are now a long way from other canids, but my feeling is that the problem actually lies in when we feed them exactly the same thing all the time, and THEN try and make a switch. I can imagine that if you always ate exactly the same thing, and then suddenly had something totally different, that your gut might rebel. I've always switched often, and never had any trouble - I don't switch from raw to kibble, they only have raw, but I've certainly switched between different protein sources, and between suppliers of pre-packaged raw, with the addition of raw bones. I've finally found a company I really like, whose food my dogs really like, so I don't think, unless they disappear (the company, not the dogs!) that I'll change again, and there's plenty of variety in their products.
