This article was brought to us by NutriSource. Their Good 4 Life System eases the transition to rotational feeding for dogs. The Come-pooch toppers, which are packed with postbiotics, promote digestive support.
Imagine opening your cabinet every evening to find the exact same prepackaged meal that you had the previous week. Even if the food tastes great, it sounds boring. There’s a chance that Bingo might feel deprived of food. Rotational feeding can spice up the life of your pup (every girl, every boy). ).
What is Rotational Feeding?
Rotational diets work exactly as they sound. You rotate your dog’s food (protein, format, etc.) You want to make sure everything is fresh for your floofer. This is all about fur-iety and has many benefits.
A balanced diet will provide your dog with more vitamins and less itchy skin. Balanced diets can reduce the risk of allergies. Too many of one type of protein or another active ingredient can cause inflammation and irritation of the gut. Variation in protein forms and food formats (kibble, raw, wet) can increase your dog’s tolerance to dietary changes. Variation in food format (kibble, wet, raw, etc.) can increase your dog’s tolerance for dietary changes. ).
How do you start rotational feeding?
The general rule of thumb is to slow down when you introduce new foods into your pup’s diet. You shouldn’t be able to rotate faster than the tennis ball launcher. You can start by adding a little bit of new food to the old. Watch out for stomach problems. Pet parents love that the NutriSource line offers a smoother transition (and less smelly) thanks to the Good 4 Life System (prebiotics and probiotics), which provides good food for your pet’s gut. Rotational feeding is easy when you add in the Come-pooch a toppers that contain activated postbiotics.
You don’t have to stick with the same premium brand of pet foods. Just look for new formulas within that brand. If your pup is a NutriSource chicken fan, you might consider buying a bag of Element Series trout or Element Series. Keep it in the rotation if he is able to tolerate it. Big kibble dood? To encourage interest, you can use Come-pooch a as a topping.
Pro tip: It doesn’t need to be fresh at all. Otherwise, you might end up with 7 bags of kibble that aren’t sealed. Instead, start rotating the bag as soon as you reach the end.
Just like our two-legged friends, dogs are hungry for variety in food, protein, and nutrients. You can use Come-pooch a toppers to make your dog’s life easier. This will make rotational feeding easier and keep your dog interested during mealtime.

The bottom line is that a happier puppy will have less stomach upset. Woofhoo!
