Default Changed the girls food..

So not long ago i posted a thread about how i was moving the girls onto ziwipeak as ive heard such good stuff about it!
I ordered a bag of the Lamb flavoured dry food and i also got a can of lamb flavoured meat as both my girls love a bit of both foods.
Ive been gradually introducing it into their other food and watching their poo`s just incase they go a bit loose..
Both girls have been fine, but this afternoon i noticed Pennys look like it had a bit of mucus in...it was formed but maybe a bit on the soft side to what hers normally are, would this just be a side effect of her diet change?
Her and Lola are perfectly fine no sickness or any other side effects just this.

Also while im talking about the ziwipeak.. This evening was the first full meal id given them as ive gradually introduced it to them but i fed Penny about 15 pieces of Ziwi and the smallest teaspoon on meat mixed in with it.. is this enough or too much?? Pennys weight is 3.8lb
I done the same with Lola but she had 20 pieces of ziwi she weighs 5.6lbs.
Thanks for reading..

You will have to go by their body conditions -- Ziwi is an easy to over feed food, so I would stick with what you are doing right now and alter appropriately as you monitor their weight. Ziwi is a great food and I think you will like it

So happy theyre enjoying it! Im curious to see what mine think, I emailed the company yesterday about trying some samples.
I wouldnt worry about Pennys poop, a little mucous just means she has some irritation which can definitely happen when you switch up their diet. Id just keep an eye on them and you should see it clear up soon.
Maybe try a search on the forum for ZP portions? I think someone posted pics of how much their chis get, they dont need much of it.
