To get started, Pedigree asked that I get some baseline information on Butch. Before starting a switch to Pedigree , here is how he rated on the Four Universal Needs:
Skin & coat: shiny and soft, though I have noticed some flakes recently
Oral care: pearly white teeth
Digestion: regular bowl movements with healthy consistency
Immunity (how often Butch gets sick): never
Transitioning a dog to a new food should be done carefully and slowly. For the first 2 days, you should insert 25% of the new food into the dog's current dry food. For days 3-4, 50% of the new food should be in the dish. For days 5-6, 75% of the food should be the new food, and beyond 7 days the entire food can be the new food.
My first impression of the Pedigree food we received was that the size of the actual food is huge compared to what he has been eating. He had no trouble acclimating to the new food. He had no gas problems and seemed to prefer the taste of the new food over his old food. In fact, I caught him and my bulldog puppy trying to break into the bag after the first feeding!

I wrote this review while participating in an Ambassador campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Pedigree and received dog food to facilitate my reviews and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
