FEEDING MANAGEMENT

When switching your dog’s diet, we recommend transitioning from the current diet to our Fat Dogs® Formula over a 10 day period. Replace 10% of the current diet with our Fat Dogs® Low Calorie Dry Dog Formula each day until they are fully transitioned. If you do not have any of your current formula to mix, reduce the amount of Fat Dogs® Formula fed for the first few days, feeding smaller more frequent meals and increase over time. Do not free feed.

Remember, fresh clean water should be available at all times!
