It is strongly advised that you do not switch your puppy's food within the first 30-days of transitioning into their new home. Transitioning to a new environment, leaving behind his/her litter-mates and being around new people is stressful to new puppies and their delicate immune systems. NuVet Plus® works as an immune system builder during this crucial transition period.
