    Seamus came home on some garbage food,(which he didn't seem to like much anyway) and I'm trying to switch him over to a quality food. I've decided on Earthborn Primitive, since I like the ingredients. Yesterday, I started mixing a little in with his regular kibble.

    He picked out the Earthborn and ate it, and left the rest. He then sat down and looked at me. I left it down for the 20 minute time limit and picked it up. He got the same bowl back at his evening meal, and ate maybe 3 pieces of kibble. :no2:

    So, does anyone have any suggestions as far as a slow transition? I'm glad he's loving on the earthborn, but I also don't want him to get diarrhea and an upset stomach.

    If he isn't eating the old food, just make a clean switch. It may upset his tummy, but it's better than him not eating. You can give a little canned pumpkin or coconut oil to aid in digestion if you feel it's necessary

    Coconut oil? Fantastic! I use it in everything! Thank you so much!

    I'm with Beatrix. If he isn't eating the old food just switch him over. All dogs are different and some handle it just fine. Mine never mind a switch of food. At the most there might be some loose stool for a day but that's it.
