Megs: The Food Transition – update

leave a comment »

Megs was balking at moving to the homemade food—eating some, but not enough. Her heart wasn’t in it.

After thinking it over, I realized that after 7 years of a 24/7 kibble buffet as her food, just getting her fully moved to canned food was quite a transition, and once she had made that, she deserved a chance to rest and solidify the new habit. So I’m now giving her canned food, no homemade, and we’re looking at the “95%” Evo line (95% duck, or turkey and chicken, or venison, or beef). The beef is of no interest to me, given the nature of US beef. Right now she’s having the venison and liking it a lot. I’ll also let her try the duck and the turkey and chicken. Whichever one she likes best will be her food for the next 2-3 weeks.

Then I will start by mixing a tiny bit of homemade into her regular canned food, and see how that goes.
