Animals, like people are prone to stomach disorders. Therefore, to transfer the dog to a different food gradually. To a new food the dog needs to be put in a period not less than ten days.

This is due to the fact that in the body of the dog, as in the body of each animal, are beneficial bacteria that participate in the process of digestion. A sudden change of diet the amount of bacteria dramatically changes, and they do not yield the desired benefit. The result is stomach upset, diarrhea, vomiting, flatulence or constipation.

The scheme of transfer to a new food

The dog must be accustomed to feed for 10-12 days. This period must be divided into 4 parts – for 2-3 days.

In the first 2-3 days of a single rate of food prepare as follows: mix 75% old food with 25% new food. In the second 2-3 days to prepare a single rate of feed is approximately 50% old and 50% new food. In the subsequent 2-3 days – 25% old and 75% new. The final stage is the presence in the diet 100% the new food. If in the process of translation from one feed to another as dog and chair are not changed, continue to feed under the scheme. Otherwise, the new feed should unsubscribe and choose another.

If the dog is reluctant to eat food on the first day, you need the new feed to reduce. For example, to increase the feed rate from 25% to 20 or 10%. Thus, the term transfer to new food is necessary to divide not on 4, and 5-10 parts. The term translation is also appropriate to increase, so the dog got used to the taste and smell of the new food.

Varieties feed

Each feed is focused on a certain breed of dog and contains micro and macronutrients to maintain the health of your pet.

For example, each firm-the manufacturer in its range has food for puppies, sterile, nursing and elderly animals.

This is due to the fact that in a certain period of life, the animal needed a different set of vitamins and minerals to increase the activity or maintain a certain organ or system, for example, to maintain the function of the liver or genitourinary system.

On the appearance of the feed are divided into dry – moisture less than 14% (pellets, biscuits, croquettes, etc.), semi-dry (cooked meat containing preservatives) and feed with a high moisture content of frozen and canned meat products.
