Since Panda can’t have chicken based food, but he can have dehydrated chicken
That's odd. How was that determined?
| What does this do if it’s too rich a food? Will I end up with the same soft stools? Or will he be hyped up and too energetic to come down from that high? What can I expect if he reacts to too much protein? Could he be okay right away with it as long as I do a gentle transition? |
Every dog reacts to the proteins differently. Usually there is vomiting or diarrhea, mostly diarrhea. Gentle transition may help but there is no way to guarantee that it will... or if he'll be okay on this food.
FWIW, I'd personally be switching to a brand that isn't as rich, not switching between the formulas of the same brand. But that's just my opinion. From my experience, dogs that do poorly on TOTW don't do well on any of the forumulations. I've seen the same with EVO. I don't know enough people who use Acana but those two other brands are notorious for causing diarrhea from richness. Again, just my experience.
