How to switch food suddenly?
I found a puppy and I reported it with all the appropriate agencies but no one has reported a lost dog or come forward yet, its getting late and I can tell the poor pup is hungry.
Obviously I have no clue what food this little gal was on so I can't switch her food slowly. So how do I feed her without making her sick?
I can't find an actual method online for sudden food shift in a puppy and I guess I didn't think things through, I was trying to find her owner, so I forgot to ask the vet and now the office is closed. I'm hoping to find the owner asap but in the meantime what should I do to avoid digestive upset and diarrhea? Fasting? frequent small meals until she's used to the food? Rice?
She seems healthy and isn't super underweight and looks to be around 9-12 weeks old?
