I do a 75% (old) to 25% (new) ratio for two days, then 50% to 50% for two days, and then 25% (old) to 75% (new) for two days. The 7th day is all new

But it depends on the dog and food, some dogs do fine cold turkey while others need 2 weeks to adjust. My dogs have always been fine with a 7 day switch
