Has an upset stomach on a fresh diet?

During transition

When transitioning to a new food, it's natural for some dogs to have slightly upset stomachs, or even vomit (which is why the transition period is crucial!). 

As long as there is not a change in appetite or overall behavior, this is completely normal and not a cause for concern. You can skip your dog's next meal to give the bacteria in their digestive system a chance to adapt. 

If the vomiting persists, we recommend slowing your dog’s transition to give their systems time to adjust more gradually. An easy way to slow your dog's transition down on your own is to spend an extra day on the first phases of the transition. For example, the 25% NomNomNow meals mixed with 75% previous food is typically suggested for the first 4 meals during the transition period, but you can stay at 25% NomNomNow and 75% previous food for the first 6 meals (simply divide up your dog's 100% meal packs to make this possible). You can do the same with your 50% NomNomNow meal packs. By the time you and your dog reach the end of the 75% phase, your next week of food will arrive and you can either continue at 75% for an additional two meals, or move on to the full meal packs if your dog is no longer having stomach issues.

If vomiting persists for more than 3 days, we recommend speaking directly with your veterinarian. 

After transition

If for some reason your dog gets an upset stomach once transitioned to NomNomNow, it may be for a variety of reasons. We recommend either feeding a half portion at their next meal, or skipping a meal to give your dog's digestive bacteria a chance to reset.

If vomiting persists for more than 3 days, we recommend speaking directly with your veterinarian.
