How long does it take to adjust to a new food?

I have been feeding my 5 month old english bulldog the dog food for approx. 1 month now. His stool is still very soft. How long does it take for a dog to adjust to the new food? I was mixing it with his old food for a while but have stopped.  
Since Flint River Ranch is so different from store brands, it usually takes a couple of weeks for a dog to adjust. That's why we recommend making any dietary change very gradually. Since your dog is still experiencing soft stools, his bowels may be perpetuating their own irritation. Slippery Elm is a very soothing natural treatment that is good for any intestinal upset and that can break this cycle.
