Why take a chance? It really doesn't involved a large effort to transition. While the brand may be the same, percentages and specific ingredients may be different.

I would do a gradual transition especially if the protein source is different to be safe.

We did this exact change with Denver and transitioned him over the course of a week or so with no problems. I would do it gradually to make sure you don't throw off his/her tummy.

Are you moving to the SSS formula with salmon? If so, I did that exact switch, and I did it slowly because it was a change from chicken to salmon, and I wanted to make sure we had no issues.
