How should I transition food

I have a 13 week old puppy that I'm switching for purina one large breed puppy to blue buffalo large breed puppy. I'm feeding him two cups in the morning and two in the evening, about how much bb should I start to add at first?

I like to go 20% for 3 days, and increase by 20% every three days to insure an easy transition.

You should also compare calorie counts on the 2 foods and adjust your total volume so it's a comparable amount of nutrition.

Also should I add anything to his food once I get him switched over to blue buffalo? Like salmon oil or anything?
