I know to switch to new food gradually over a week or so, but does this also apply to changing flavors WITHIN a certain brand, ie Nature's Variety lamb to beef or salmon?

You know... you'd think it would be okay.. however I have found that it's best to introduce any thing new gradually.

From what I understand, different preservatives are used in different meats, which could be a problem going from red meat to fish. Also, there would be a lot more oil and much less fat in the salmon formulas. when I switch varieties within the same brand, I still try to do it over 5-7 days.

Thanks to both of you - that's what I thought, just wanted to make sure I wasn't being over cautious.
