Changing Your Dog’s Food

If your dog is new to Vet’s Kitchen® or this recipe, please introduce it slowly by gradually replacing the old diet over the course of ten days.
If you feed too much too soon of any new food, your pet could suffer from stomach upset or other digestive problems. Learn more about how you can help your dog lose weight here.
