How to Introduce Your Pet to Natural Foods
Because Horizon Legacy Grain-Free is concentrated for better nutrition, palatability and digestibility, you will actually feed from 20% - 40% less than other foods. Your pet's breath will improve dramatically, you'll have less waste to scoop and, in the case of cats, litter box odors will decrease dramatically (something the whole family will get excited about).
We believe Horizon Legacy Grain-Free is a vastly superior food and that after using it for four to six weeks, you will see a positive difference in your dogs and cats, including sleeker coats, brighter eyes, cleaner breath and increased energy.
Because this food is so different from the majority of pet foods on the market, we recommend that you introduce it to your pets slowly, especially for cats. Over the course of about 7 to 10 days, add a little Horizon to your pet's regular food, each day increasing the amount of Horizon Legacy Grain-Free and decreasing the amount of the other food until you've switched the food completely. Example: first two or three days, mix 3/4 of your regular food and 1/4 of the Horizon Legacy Grain-Free; next two or three days, mix 1/2 of your regular food and 1/2 of the Horizon Legacy Grain-Free; then for two or three days, mix 1/4 of your regular food and 3/4 of the Horizon Legacy Grain-Free. Then all Horizon Legacy Grain-Free!
After you've switched completely, don't forget to add fresh fruits, vegetables and meats periodically...in between meals, as snacks!
BecauseHorizon Legacy Grain-Free foods are all natural and formulated to help the animal's body heal itself, it starts a cleansing process. Bio-available vitamins, Chelated minerals and nutrients are first digested in the stomach - then absorbed into the blood through the intestinal walls. For this reason,Horizon Legacy Grain-Free encourages that any diet change to an all-natural food be made over a period of time to allow the cleansing process to take place slowly. This is very important, as any abrupt diet change will upset a cat's stomach and often cause diarrhea. A gradual change is an ideal way to introduce your cat to Flint River Ranch and achieve optimal results.
