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 split your 50% transition meals in half. For example, mix these now 25% NomNomNow meals with 75% of your previous food for as long as you think is best for your pup. You can continue to slowly increase the percentage of NomNomNow or move on to the 50% transition meal packs if your dog is no longer having stomach issues.

If you need further assistance, you can always reach us at 415-991-0669, or by emailing help@nomnomnow.com.

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 you need further assistance, you can always reach us at 415-991-0669, or by emailing help@nomnomnow.com.

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