Food Suggestions for Your Basset Hound
In our experience with Basset Hounds, we have found that a grain free diet works best with their bodies, leaving them less itchy and much healthier.
When changing food, always make it gradual. Taking place over 10-14 days and starting with more of the old food and slowly introducing the new. Example: 1/4 of the new to 3/4 of the old, replacing the old with the new every few days. If your basset experiences any soft stool, add a tablespoon of mashed sweet potato or pumpkin puree (unsweetened). This helps aid the digestion and firm the stool. Often you won't know or have access to what food your new basset has previously been eating so we recommend adding some sweet potato or pumpkin to their food for a few days.
