Benefits of Rotational Feeding for your Dog

Dogs often find themselves munching on the same kibble day in and day out. However, this monotonous routine could lead to boredom and flavour fatigue. Thankfully, more and more pet parents are embracing a more diverse approach to feeding their furry companions through rotational feeding.

What is rotational feeding?

Rotational feeding involves regularly switching (or rotating) between different diets. Whether it's on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, or simply transitioning from one bag to the next, the goal remains the same: to offer variety to your dog's mealtime.

Rotational Feeding Schedule Example:

Week 1-2: Chicken-based wet food

Week 3-4: Insect-based kibble

Week 5-6: Fish-based stew

Week 7-8: Insect-based kibble

Why should you consider rotational feeding for your pup?

Limits boredom

It keeps things interesting for your furry friend. Just as humans enjoy a diverse menu, dogs thrive on variety. Whether you're changing up the protein, flavour, or texture, a rotational diet can stave off flavor fatigue and inject excitement into meal times.

Boost their gut health

Rotational feeding promotes diversity in your dog's gut bacteria. By exposing them to a range of proteins and ingredients, you can enrich their microbiome and support overall digestive health.

Give a variety of nutrients

Additionally, a varied diet offers a broader spectrum of nutrients. From amino acids to fatty acids and antioxidants, rotational feeding may allow for a more diverse nutrient intake from different ingredients.

How do you go about implementing a rotational diet?

Transitioning to a rotational feeding schedule is a breeze and akin to switching to a new food. Consider incorporating hypoallergenic proteins into your rotation, such as insect protein. Not only does insect protein offer a unique nutritional profile, including high quality amino acids, prebiotic fibre for gut health and medium-chain fatty acids for immune support, but it's also less likely to trigger allergies compared to traditional proteins, so no need to worry if your dog is prone to allergies.

How to feed a rotational diet for dogs


One effective approach is to rotate your dog's food monthly or when finishing a bag. This minimizes the risk of food spoilage by avoiding multiple open bags or containers at once.

Rotational feeding is a simple yet effective way to enhance your dog's mealtime experience while promoting overall health and well-being. With the combined health and sustainability benefits of insect protein, it is the perfect diet to include in your pup's rotation!
