How To Transition To Fresh Dog Food

For dogs who have previously eaten a non-fresh diet (such as kibble), we recommend a seven-day transition period to allow the bacteria in a dog's gut to adjust to a fresh diet. We want to give the body time to adapt to a different nutrient blend and different ingredients.

As a result of that, we know that the bacteria in the gut are going to have to change to accommodate and help to digest these new nutrients. Typically, we recommend a transition of about seven days. Fortunately, Nom Nom makes it easy through a transition program that will clearly lay out a gradual increase of the new food while decreasing the old food.
