Your lowbie pet merely needs to be in a full round of combat to qualify for leveling experience. So yes your set up would work fine.

Yeah I've made the mistake of swapping my lowbie out on first turn without keeping it in that one round, then swapping out.
The other interesting thing you can try, if you can time things just right, is to NOT swap in the lowbie and have the two carry pets dead as the battle ends (i.e. against the Pandaren Water Spirit, both my carry pets usually end up dead at the end of the last round due to Whirlpool/Geyser). The lowbie pet will still gain experience as it's the only one alive.
