Food transition, an essential step

For this change to take place in good conditions, it is essential to carry out a food transition.

This transition allows your dog or cat to gradually adapt to its new diet. Without it, the ingestion of a new food can lead to digestive and transit disorders (diarrhea, vomiting, intolerance and/or refusal to eat). As your pet's digestive flora is specific to the food he usually eats, it will not be adapted to the new recipe and will have to evolve. The food transition period allows this evolution without impacting the well-being of your faithful companion!
