PREGNANT AND NURSING DOGS: Adjust feeding amounts in order to maintain ideal body condition. Feed multiple meals per day with daily amounts divided into smaller meals. Can be moistened. For pregnant dogs, minimal increase is needed during first 6 weeks of pregnancy. After 6 weeks, until whelping, increase amount of food up to 25% more than normal adult maintenance amounts. For nursing dogs, begin increasing amount fed immediately after whelping. Depending on the size of the litter, the amounts needed to maintain ideal body condition will increase up to 50% more than normal adult maintenance amounts.
PUPPIES: Adjust feeding amounts to maintain steady growth and ideal body condition throughout your puppy’s growth period. Puppies that become larger adult dogs will grow more slowly and for more months than small dogs. Feed large breed puppies (greater than 70 lbs. as an adult) 15% less than amount listed in chart.
Amounts will depend on age, activity, environment and temperament. Helping to decrease dog obesity means keeping your puppy at ideal body condition throughout its growth and early adulthood.
Puppies that become small/medium size dogs (up to 70 LB) can be transitioned to Natural Balance’s Adult Maintenance Dog Food Formulas at 9-12 months. Puppies that become larger size dogs (over 70 LB) can be transitioned to Natural Balance’s Adult Maintenance Dog Food Formulas at 12-18 months.
Keep clean water available at all times.
