This is to ensure your dog’s digestive system has the opportunity to become accustomed to the new food.

Then increase the quantity of Harringtons food each day for 5-7 days until you are feeding 100% Harringtons.

We recommend that you contact your vet to discuss your dog’s body condition score and for advice on your dog's ideal weight. Our foods provide a medium energy diet which is an ideal maintenance food. To achieve weight loss, you may need to reduce the portion size of your dog’s daily feed and avoid giving treats. It is important that you also provide your dog with plenty of exercise. Remember, if you feed the right amount of food for the energy your dog is using, your dog will maintain the same weight. If you feed less than this your dog will lose weight, and if you feed more your dog will gain weight.
Our adult varieties are suitable for all dogs from the age of 8 weeks. The main difference between our puppy and adult varieties is that the puppy contains higher levels of protein to assist with the high growth rate associated with puppies. The time to change over from puppy to adult food depends on the breed and individual dog. Many people make this change when their dog is around ¾ expected adult size, once their growth rate has slowed down.
We recommend that if you feed an adult variety to a puppy you allow them to eat according to their appetite to ensure they receive enough calories and protein to grow at the correct rate.
