Do I need to introduce new food gradually to my dog?
You should consider gradually transitioning to new pet foods to help avoid dietary upset. We recommend consumers introduce a new pet food over a period of 7 - 10 days to help avoid dietary upset. Each day, increase the amount of the new food while decreasing the amount of the current food.
After opening, how long can wet food be left out?
We don’t recommend leaving wet food out for more than 2 hours after opening. Any remaining food should be refrigerated in a covered container and should be kept for no longer than 3 days.
Can I microwave canned pet food?
We do not recommend microwaving pet food that has been refrigerated. The food may heat unevenly, creating hot spots that could injure your dog’s mouth. In lieu of microwaving, we recommend allowing about 1 hour for the product to reach room temperature before serving.
