Introducing a New Food: Although it is very likely that your pet will start eating Tropical Carnival right away, we recommend that a three-week food transition period be practiced for optimum results. Week 1: Mix 1/4 of the Tropical Carnival Natural Food to 3/4 of the current food and repeat for one week. Week 2: Mix 1/2 of the Tropical Carnival Natural food with 1/2 of the current food and repeat for one week. Week 3: Mix 3/4 of the Tropical Carnival Natural food with 1/4 of the current food and repeat for one week. Week 4: The transition is complete and you can supply only Tropical Carnival Natural food to your pet as their main diet. For optimal freshness, store in a cool, dry area before and after opening. Refrigerate for extended storage. Fresh, clean drinking water should be available at all times.
