Transitioning your dog onto Eureka

It’s always best to take a gentle & safe approach to transitioning your dog onto a new food to avoid any “explosive” situations. Some dogs can “woof” down anything without any issues and others tends to be a little more sensitive when it comes to their diet.

Because Eureka is more nutritionally dense than most commercial diets we recommend starting with a gradual transition period over a period of 7 days to avoid any stomach issues. This allows your pet’s digestive system time to adjust as you increase the amount of Eureka in their diet.

Some dogs with sensitive stomachs, food allergies, or other gastrointestinal diseases may require an even longer transition period. The trick to a safe diet transition is to monitor your dog’s response to their new food. If, at any point during the diet transition, your dog displays concerning signs such as changes in appetite, vomiting, or diarrhea, you should proceed more slowly. Remember, it is normal for your dog to have soft stools for 1-2 weeks as the gut adjusts to a new, energy dense diet. For those with a curious mind on what the ideal poo looks like… Check out our post on “What you can tell from your dogs Poo”.

If you are planning to mix Eureka into your dogs current diet then you will be able to transition quicker depending on the amount of Eureka you are planning to feed. Part feeding Eureka is a great way to give your dog’s existing diet a boost with an increased proportion of quality proteins and fats.

Every dog is different

Every dog is different and to take the guess work out of how much Eureka to feed, we recommend a personalised feeding amount using your dog’s individual traits to provide an optimal starting point.

We advise that you start with this amount and adjust gradually over time if and as required.

If you have any question please don’t hesitate to reach out for further advice.

How to transition

Start by swapping 15% of your dog’s diet across to Eureka, increasing this amount by 15% each day until you are feeding 100% Eureka by day 7:

  1. Day 1

    15% Eureka and 85% old diet.

  2. Day 3

    50% Eureka and 50% old diet.

  3. Day 5

    75% Eureka and 25% old diet.

  4. Day 7

    100% Eureka!
