These feeding guidelines are suggested only. Feeding amounts may vary by breed, activity level, temperament and climate. Amounts are recommended for an average dog with normal activity. Adjust feeding guideline according to your dog’s age, activity level, and environment.
Adult dogs should be fed either once or twice a day. When you first start feeding Natural Balance® Vegetarian Dry Dog Formula, we suggest starting with the amounts recommended in the table. The amount of food should always be adjusted to suit your dog’s needs.
WORKING DOGS
Based on the work your dog will be asked to perform, the nutritional requirements will vary accordingly. As the workload increases, the demand for protein and fat increases proportionally. Dogs in hard training will generally require twice the maintenance levels.
OLDER DOGS
As your dog begins to age, his energy expenditure will decrease. Decreasing the amount of food accordingly will allow for the maintenance of proper body weight for a less active dog.
FEEDING MANAGEMENT
We recommend that you do not add vitamins, minerals, or any other supplements, except upon the advice of a veterinarian. When switching your dog's diet, the change should be made gradually by replacing the current food with increasing portions of Natural Balance® Vegetarian Dry Dog Formula. The change should be completed after 5 to 7 days. The maintenance of proper body weight is most important for your dog's health. Consult your veterinarian for specific weight recommendations for your dog.
Remember, fresh clean water should be available at all times!
