Transitioning

Switching over from a diet of regular dog food to an all-natural one can take a bit of getting used to for your dog, so we’re here to make sure that everything goes smoothly.

We recommend starting off by gradually adding their new Butternut Box food to whatever they’re currently eating across a number of days. To help you do this, we include a 7-day transition plan in their first box of food which allows their digestion to get used to the super fresh meals over the first week of their new diet. There are new flavours, textures and ingredients to explore!

Look out for the pouches labeled Day 1 - Day 6 in their first box, and simply mix these into your dog’s existing food. You can decrease the amount of their old food in their bowl as you add more Butternut Box every day.

Once the 7 days are up, your dog will be transitioned over Butternut Box. Waggy tails all round. They now need their full-sized meals to move on to, which is why we send out 14 days’ worth of food in their trial box. We like to think we’ve thought of everything!
