Rotational Feeding For Fussy Dogs

Are you giving your dog the exact same food day after day after day? It can not only lead to boredom but also limit the spectrum of nutrients and even increase their risk of food sensitivities. 

Rotational feeding is switching up your pup’s menu on a regular basis to broaden their palate and incorporate more nutrients into their diet. It’s easy to start doing but should be done safely.

Benefits Of Rotational Feeding 

Keeps your dog excited

Dogs often become fussy about their food when they get bored with it.

Boredom can also make them eat non-food items like dirt or garbage, which could be dangerous. 

Switching up your puppy’s food keeps them open to new foods and makes mealtimes more exciting.

Diversifies the gut bacteria 

There are a plethora of microorganisms in your little furball’s gut that are helping him digest his food properly. 

So, when you change up your pet’s diet and include different types of foods containing fiber and probiotics, you increase their longevity.

Allows nutritional variety

Rotational feeding means your fur baby will be able to take in a wide range of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants. Moreover, a varied diet reduces the risk of your dog developing food sensitivities later in life.

Change Their Protein Sources

For our dog Abby, we switch between chicken and eggs on a regular basis. We do two boiled eggs in her dinner for two days and then a palmful of chicken for the next two days. This goes on for six days of the week, and then we skip the protein altogether on Sunday to give her tummy a little break.

Alternating between grain-inclusive and grain-free

Going completely grain-free is never advised unless your dog is allergic to grains. We switch between red rice, white rice, and ragi flour for a grain-inclusive meal. We do boiled veggies and yogurt for a grain-free meal.

Alternating between dry and wet foods

We keep things interesting for our dog by providing an assortment of different textures at mealtime. We give her dry kibble 1-2 times a week and home-cooked food the rest of the days. When we travel with our dog , we keep different types of dry food for uncertain times.

How To Do It?

Here is a general timetable to transition your dog’s diet: 

  • Day 1: Replace 25% of the old food with the new food. (Ex. – Swap only the protein)
  • Day 3: Replace 50% of the old food with the new food. (Ex. – Swap the grain for veggies)
  • Day 5: Replace 75% of the old food with the new food. (Ex. – Bring in new protein and new grain)
  • Day 7: Fully transition 100% of the old food to the new food.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
