Any advice on how to do the switch? Thanks!

I've had dogs that won't react to a immediate change in kibbles. In fact I've never had a dog that did have adverse reactions. I think it comes down to the sensitivity of that particular dog's stomach, which in your case may be reactive. But if she is refusing the kibble in the first place, I wouldn't bother easing into the new stuff if she enjoys it. Just my nonprofessional opinion though.
