Terri I am trying to reply to you re. Intermittent feeding

Customer Question

Terri I am trying to reply to you re. Intermittent feeding but for some reason I am unable to. I was planning to switch her from Royal Canin to Iams completely as it is cheaper. If she tolerates it well, can I do that? Reading the cans, Iams is a bit oilier (Iams, crude fat 6.0%, Royal Canin 5.3%)

Thanks! What is the best way to do the transition?

Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.
BUT it must be done slowly to avoid diarrhea
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I am thinking of doing it:

80% royal canin, 20% Iams for 3 days

60% royal canin 40% iams for 3 days

40% royal canin 60%iams for 2 days

Sounds good? Too fast?
