Switching dog food, what process or timeline do you recommend?


My family is going to have an 8 week old Golden Retriever puppy join our home in a couple of weeks. I am planning on transitioning her from the current food she is on (Purina puppy chow) to a higher quality dog food. Which food would you recommend switching her to and what process/timeline do you recommend?



With a good quality food you can change by mixing 50/50 for 3 days and transition over. For a Golden, I would do Kinesis as the food for a puppy. Good luck and enjoy those baby teeth!
