Feeding Tip - Introduce Food Gradually

The percentages of food and the number of days suggested here are a general guide for a smooth transition. Mojo's specific "transition rate" may be different if he/she has a sensitive tummy. If you notice that Mojo has an upset stomach or loose stool, feed less of the new food for a day or two more, before upping the percentage of new food.

Days 1-2
What To Do
Introduce Mojo to the new food gradually. For the first two days or so, your dog's meals should be about 75% old food and 25% PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition. Mix the two foods together, don't keep them separated.

Feeding Tip - Don't Overfeed

Always make sure you're feeding Mojo the right amount for his/her size and weight. You can find this information on every bag of PEDIGREE® Food for Dogs. Overfeeding is the number one reason dogs become overweight, so follow the guidelines and keep track of Mojo's weight to make sure the right amount of calories are being fed—and no more.

Days 3-4
What To Do
If the first couple of days of the transition have gone smoothly, you can now mix 50% of Mojo's old food with 50% PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition.

Feeding Tip - Feed Dogs Separately

If you have more than one dog in your home and are only transitioning Mojo to PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition, it's best to feed the dogs in separate rooms. And, when they are finished with their individual meals, remove any uneaten food. That way you can be sure your dogs are eating the correct foods.

Days 5-6
What To Do
At this stage, Mojo's meals should be about 75% PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition and only 25% of the old food. Always look for signs that Mojo is making the transition smoothly and without any sign of an upset tummy.

Feeding Tip - Look for Improvements

Now that Mojo is enjoying Adult Complete Nutrition, don't be surprised if you see some positive changes in the weeks to come. Like a shinier coat—thanks to the leading levels of linoleic acid in Adult Complete Nutrition— and optimum stool quality.

Day 7 and beyond
What To Do
At this stage, Mojo's meals should be 100% PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition. Which means Mojo's old food is now officially his/her "old" food.
WALTHAM® research is behind our professional nutrition.

Before you begin

With leading levels of antioxidants, Vitamins E & C, linoleic acid, and lots of other healthy stuff packed into every kibble, we know you can't wait to get your dog started on one of the improved PEDIGREE® Dry Food recipes.

But changing a dog's diet too quickly could make his tummy unhappy, which can cause a stomachache and diarrhea. That's why the transition period may take about a week.

To make the process as smooth and pleasant as possible, please follow the simple steps in this interactive guide.*
