    Pepper has been on Friskies pate her whole life. I was wondering if it might be a good idea to try to switch her food to Fancy Feast instead? Just to see if her numbers come down more. If that sounds like a good idea, what flavors do your sugar babies enjoy the most?

    They are both good. I would give her whatever she likes.

    Hi. I want to try fancy feast for a day or two just to see if he will keep it down. Right now I know that he will probably eat a chicken flavor since he is keeping pieces of cooked chicken down and the other day I think he liked the white fish one. I want to transition him without causing more diarrhea, any suggestions on how I would d that?

    Slowly will be best. Maybe start with 1/4 Fancy Feast and 3/4 Glycobalance. Keep that for a day or two then 1/3 FF to 23 Glyc. for a day or two, then 1/2 and 1/2 and so on until he's completely switched.

    I meant fractions of the total meal amount, not cups. If you're just starting, put 1/4 of the total amount (whatever that is) of the meal as Fancy Feast and the other 3/4 of the total as Glycobalance. If his meal amount is a half cup total, eyeball about 1/4 of that total and make it Fancy Feast. Make up the other 3/4 of the half cup total as Glycobalance. Make sense?
