How To Switch Dog Food If Your Dog Is “Free Feeding”?
If you’re free-feeding your dog you can still try both a sudden and a gradual food switch. That being said, it’s a good idea to use the occasion to switch to a strict feeding schedule of 2 or 3 separate meals a day.
Even if your dog is extra stubborn about it, don’t despair. Just take things slow, make the switch gradual, and make sure your dog is eating at least once every 48 hours (or 24 hours to be extra safe).
