If you are just starting your journey with Essentials, we suggest that you gradually phase in this tasty new food over the course of 4-7 days, or make the change from one day to the next which works equally well. We advise that you spend the first 2-3 weeks identifying the correct portion size, overfeeding will result in softer stools. When your dog’s stools are solid and they feel satisfied, you have found the correct portion size.
Always ensure fresh drinking water is available.
