Protection Croque BASIC Excellent can be given dry. No preparation is needed. Always ensure there is fresh drinking water at room temperature available.

Switching from one extruded food to another

A. When you are switching from a different brand of extruded (expanded) kibble to ours, you can mix the foods for a while until you have switched over. Mix an increasing amount of the new food into the old over a period of 7 days until you have switched completely. Occasionally switching to another food may result in slightly different feces. However, this is completely harmless. You could also opt for switching using frozen raw meat (see switching guideline section C).

B. When you are switching your pet from pressed kibble to one of Prins's extruded (expanded) varieties, we recommend an instant changeover instead of a period of mixing. Occasionally switching to another food may result in slightly different feces. However, this is completely harmless. You could also opt for switching using frozen raw meat (see switching guideline section C). Pressed kibble is a condensed food with less volume than the extruded type. The recommended portions are therefore smaller, making this food easier on the stomach.

C. Switching to a new type of kibble is also possible by using frozen raw meat. In this case, offer your dog a frozen raw meat meal such as Prins TotalCare Super Active Complete for one week. This will ensure an optimal recovery of the intestinal flora. After a week of feeding only raw meat you can switch to the new kibble instantly, without a mixing period.

If your dog has never tried raw meat before, we recommend slighty cooking the meat for the first two days in order to give the digestive system some time to adjust. After two days you can serve the thawed meat at room temperature.

Has your food never tried kibble before and would you like to switch from raw meat meals to pressed or extruded kibble? Then you can follow the switching guideline in section B (an instant changeover).
