How to transition my dog to your meals for the first time?

As with switching to any new brand of food, the diet should be introduced slowly. Start by mixing 1/5 (for dogs more prone to tummy issues) or 1/3 (for dogs who can tolerate most new meals) of The Grateful Pet into your pet's existing food and gradually increasing the portion of their new meals and reducing their previous diet over 3 to 7 days. 


Looser stools and/or mild diarrhoea may happen depending on how rapidly the dietary transition is made. A longer, more gradual transition period is highly recommended for dogs with more sensitive stomachs.


For dogs more prone to tummy issues

Days 1-3, serve 25% of new food mixed with 75% old food

Days 4-7, serve 50% of new food mixed with 50% of the old food

Days 8-12, serve 75% of new food mixed with 25% of the old food

Day 13-14, serve 100% of new food


For dogs who can tolerate most new meals

Days 1-2, serve 35% of new food mixed with 65% old food

Days 3-4, serve 70% of new food mixed with 30% of the old food

Days 5-7, serve 100% of new food



Feel free to adjust the feeding proportions slightly as you observe your dog during the first few days.

If your dog has persistent diarrhoea for more than 2 days, we recommend bringing your dog to the vet for medical advice.
