Changing Food Questions
Audrey started on puppy organix dry kibble and at about 8 months I gradually switched her over to taste of the wild's high prairie dry dog food, which she is still one at one years old.
That said, here are my questions regarding changing food:
1) most dog foods have different flavors of food. for example, TOTW has the high prairie kind that has roasted bison and venison and the sierra mountain kind that has roasted lamb, sweet potato and peas, etc... When switching flavors within the same brand, is this considered "changing dog food" where we should gradually change the food over the next several weeks by mixing the old food and the new food?
2) I want to try a different brand of food for Audrey and already have some brands in mind. How often do you change dog food brands within a year or a given span of time? If you stick to the same brand like Fromm from example but switch up the flavors for your dog just for variety's sake or should we just keep feeding her the same brand / flavor of kibble for the rest of their lives?
Please let me know if my questions are confusing so I can clarify.
Thanks in advance!
