Tips for Transitioning
Introduce new foods slowly, especially if going from a dry food to a wet.
Start by replacing one quarter of your existing food with Lucky Dog Cuisine
Do this for 1 to 2 days then start adding more LDC and eliminating the old food.
Normal transition can be as little as a couple of days or as much as a week.
Some picky eaters may require the food to be warmed slightly.
PLEASE NOTE: You will likely need less LDC than your old food as we have no preservatives or fillers in our food. Please do not overfeed (especially small or picky dogs)
HOW MUCH TO FEED
We have included a feeding chart on this page but keep in mind each dog is different. How much to feed depends on many factors including age, gender, breed, time of year, activity and stress levels and the toughest to measure “metabolism”.
As a general guideline 2-3% of a dog’s body weight fed daily when feeding LDC exclusively
Larger adult dogs generally need a little less on a percentage basis 2-2.5% is usually sufficient while smaller dogs trend a bit higher in general 2.5-3%
Younger and highly active dogs will trend higher while older more sedentary dogs naturally need slightly less.
Puppies will eat you out of house and home for the first 12-18 months. They may need as much as 4-5% of their body weight fed daily while growing but please remember to reduce their food as they start to mature. Dog’s normally do not stop loving LDC unless they are being overfed.
Why not just continue to feed my dry kibble?
