Switching flavors of dog food

If you stick to the same brand of dog food (Frohms) but want to try different flavors, do you have to introduce the new flavor gradually, or can you switch right away, like you can with cats?

I would still introduce gradually

some dogs do well with switching right away and others do not..

We do it gradually, too. It's not the brand so much as the switch in ingredients that can cause upset, and new flavors (even within the same brand) usually have new ingredients.

Thanks, I'll do it gradually, then, I wasn't sure if it could do any harm by switching right away.
