How to transition to Black Hawk dog food


What’s the best way to transition my dog to Black Hawk dog food?

When transitioning between any diets, it’s important to do so slowly. Veterinarians usually recommend transitioning over 1-2 weeks (2 weeks is better), regardless of what diets you’re transitioning between.

When changing food, the good bacteria in the gut need time to adapt and change, to cope with digesting the new food. If a transition period isn’t allowed, the good bacteria are overwhelmed and an overgrowth of bad bacteria will occur.

This can result in a temporary diarrhoea. It is very common for dogs to have softer stools during the transition period, and isn’t anything to worry about. This should all resolve by the end of the transition period.

This is a guide to how to transition your dog or puppy to Black Hawk. 

Please note, if your dog’s diarrhoea fails to resolve, your dog goes off of its food or seems unwell, then it needs to be seen by a veterinarian.

When you transition onto Black Hawk you may notice a few changes. Because of the high protein content of our food, most dogs will have a small firmer stool.

Monitor animals that are prone to constipation for any issues defecating (most dogs will be just fine!). You may also notice that you need to feed less food to maintain the same body weight of your dog.

This is because the high protein content of our food makes it energy packed. Basically, this all means less waste to clean up and more time to spend really bonding with your best friend!
