Transition to Science Diet Youthful Vitality

How to Transition to Science Diet Youthful Vitality

When changing your pet's food, a gradual transition can help minimize digestive issues and encourage acceptance of the new food.

  1. Start the process by mixing the current food with a little bit of the new food.

  2. Gradually decrease the amount of the current food while increasing the amount of the new food.

  3. Continue this over a 7-day period. Pets who are finicky, older or have specific health issues may take 10-14 days to fully transition.

Watch for the TELL TAIL Signs of Aging

Compared to people, dogs age at an accelerated rate. So even though 7 might not seem very old, at that age, your pet may begin to experience some major health problems. Because aging happens gradually over time, it may not be immediately apparent that your dog is starting to show some age-related changes. If you recognize any of these signs, consult with your vet to get some advice about whether you should switch your dog's food.

  • THINKING: Your pet is now confused by ordinary things, like how to find his bed.

  • ACTIVITY: Naps have become more appealing than playing or exploring.

  • INTERACTIONS: Your pet doesn't socialize with you as much as before.

  • LOSS OF CONTROL: Your pet is well-trained, but has started having accidents.

  • SLEEP-WAKE CYCLE: Sleeping patterns have changed, with more awake time during the night.

  • Vet recommended for my beagle!!

    By on

    My vet recommended this Science Diet formula for my dog and she started eating this right away and is doing well on it. I chose Chewy for purchasing because their price beat the pet store and I don't have to pick up the big bag several times from store shelf, cart to car, and car to house. It is delivered quickly right to my front door.

    I do not have any qualification on how it works but my Border Collie does like it. It was my oversight but I was disappointed that the bag was much smaller yet cost more than the other Science Diet type I was getting.

  • Noticeable Difference

    By on

    I originally bought this by mistake for my 10 year old large mixed breed, but I've permanently switched him to it because he has much more energy and has actually resumed going for daily walks after a period of about a year where I couldn't get him to leave the yard in the morning for a walk. I thought he was at the end of his life, turns out I just wasn't giving him what he needed to feel good.
