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.

This product is meant to be fed to growing puppies and pregnant or nursing adult dogs. Puppies should be fed 3 meals per day up to 6 months of age and then twice a day. Provide daily amounts of food divided into the smaller meals. Moisten food until just soft for the early weaning period. Pick up leftover food and discard in order to maintain freshness. As puppies grow teeth and can bite dry food, reduce the amount of water added to the food.

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 All Life Stages Formulas at 9–12 months. Puppies that become larger size dogs (over 70 lb) can be transitioned to Natural Balance's All Life Stage Formulas at 12–18 months.

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.

Get your puppy off to a good start with a first and then regular veterinary visits. Keep fresh water available at all times.
