switching food for 8 year old Sheltie

Post by Bobbie » Fri May 24, 2019 12:46 pm

I rescued Shannon, an 8 yr. old female. I've had her 3 months now and I'm trying to give her better food. She came eating Iams. I have been trying to slowly transition her to Taste of the Wild for about a week. It gives her a partial loose stool, but nothing too bad. She also eats all but what new food I added, and then goes back later and eats the 'new' food too. Does anyone think Taste of Wild food has too much protein for and 8yr. old? Is it too late in her life to try to change foods? Also,the kibble is smaller in size than Iams. Should I give her less food because its more dense? I love this sweet dog and would appreciate any advice.
