Making the Switch

Getting Started

Changing your dog’s or cat’s diet too quickly can sometimes result in stomach upset. No one wants that, especially your pet. That’s why LUVSOME recommends transitioning your pet’s food over several days.

*If your pet is on a special diet, please consult with your veterinarian before switching food.

Introduce your pet to the new LUVSOME food slowly, with LUVSOME making up about 25% of the bowl, and the old food about 75%. Combine both foods in the bowl at the same time.

Gradually increase the percentage of LUVSOME food in the bowl so that it is made up of about 50% old food and 50% LUVSOME.

If the first couple of days go smoothly, well done! Your pet is likely ready for another increase in the amount of LUVSOME food in the bowl. The bowl should now be about 75% LUVSOME and 25% old food.

You’ve made the switch! Your pet’s food should now be 100% LUVSOME.


Tips and Tricks:

  • These directions should be used as a guideline for a smooth transition. Every pet varies and your pet may need a longer transition period if he/she has a sensitive stomach. If your pet has an upset stomach, feed less of the new food for a day or two more before increasing the percentages.
  • Always make sure you are feeding your pet the right amount of food for his/her size and weight.  See our feeding instructions on every bag of LUVSOME for guidance.
  • Water is an important part of your pet’s diet.  Make sure lots of fresh, clean water is available for your pet.
