Update Time:2023/9/25

The "seven-day food change method" is that the new food is mixed into the old cat food in a certain proportion, and the proportion is gradually increased, and the new food is completely replaced after 7 days of mixing. Although it is called the "seven-day food change method", the 7-day cycle can only meet the food change cycle of most cats, and the specific situation also needs to refer to the cat's own physique.

Specific operation:

Day 1-2: New food 25% original food 75%;

Day 3-4: New food 50% original food 50%;

Day 5-6: New food 75% original food 25%;

Day 7 and beyond: The new food completely replaces the original food.

The "seven-day food change method"essentially allows the cat to have a transition period between food changes.

Cat owners should flexibly adjust the pace of food exchange according to their cat's gastrointestinal adaptability.
