It is about to get a little more expensive to have a dog. Just like every other industry, the dog food industry is dealing with a shortage that will likely affect the prices that you pay.

According to reports, the pet food supply chain is also feeling the crunch these days.

Consumer demand is also affecting the way food is made, shipped and sold.

If you own a dog or have done some grocery shopping over the last couple of weeks, you probably have seen some of the shelves that are empty or depleted inventory? You may want to try to find it elsewhere. Like most dog owners, it is all about routine when it comes to getting dog food. But we are lucky to have many locally owned pet supply stores as well as some larger farm supply stores. Tractor Supply seems to be a very popular place and the prices are reasonable. Check ahead to make sure that they carry the brand you want. If you need to switch brands, there is some advice from veterinarians. The AKC website states:

Any time you decide to change your dog’s food, you should transition to the new diet gradually in order to give your dog’s system time to adjust to the change. Ideally, these transitions should happen over 5-7 days. During this transition, you will gradually incorporate more and more of the new food by mixing it with your dog’s current diet.
