When transitioning to our higher fiber diet, some noticeable changes in stool value may occur. This reflects a more healthy digestive tract. We recommend that transitioning be done over a five day period. Be sure that a bowl of fresh water is always available to your pet.
As your pet is consuming a higher fiber diet, it is normal to observe an increased consumption of drinking water on a regular basis. Water is an essential nutrient and is very important to overall health.
