    Hi everyone

    I am looking to change my dog from Fish4dogs to Ziwipeak, but does anyone know how I go about this? I assume I do it gradually rather than just switch? Does anyone know whether they are digested differently i.e. should one be fed well before the other?

    Very confused, I'm sure I must be making it more difficult than it is.

    Thank you

    I feed Ziwipeak :thumbup: Changed from WW about a month ago. I just did the usual mix a bit more every day for a week. As far as I know there isn't an issue with digesting differently, and I feed it mixed with wet food (as do a lot of other people) and it seems fine.

    Oh brill, I was just planning on using it alone rather than mixed with anything once I have switched him - do you think that will be okay?

    It's a complete feed and so should be fine fed on it's own. Probably beneficial to add a bit of water to it but you dont have to. Loads feed 100% dry with no problems but I'm afraid I'm a wet food addict after lots of problems with kibble and would always advise using a bit of wet as well.:D

    Ziwi is a dehydrated raw so does digest at different rates to kibbles (same as raw) you can try doing it slowly or do cold turkey and possibly deal with a few loose stools!!

    Both their dry and wet are amazing foods I'm a raw feeder but will use ziwi once in a while if mornings out the freezer or were in a rush! It's fantastic I'm sureyou will notice huge changes!! Size of stools being one thing lol
