Feeding Guidelines
These are the recommended feeding ranges for puppies. These guidelines should be adjusted as needed to obtain optimum weight.

Puppies: From 3 to 5 weeks of age, moisten food and feed frequently. From 6 weeks of age, feed the suggested amount in three meals per day until 6 months of age, then twice daily.

Pregnant/Lactating Bitches: During pregnancy, offer 50% more and during lactation offer at least two to three times more than the amount shown for puppies over 12 months of age.

Keep fresh drinking water available at all times, provide plenty of exercise and see your veterinarian regularly. Serve dry or lightly moistened. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing in a cool, dry location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST DOG FOOD EVER!! My husky lab mix Is growing so big and strong with a beautiful healthy soft coat! The price isn't horrible but I don't even question it because it is worth every penny. My vet is so impressed and never questions his health. I'm so glad I found this food for my fur baby!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome coat! I've been feeding my puppy with this since he was 2 months old, his coat is shiny, always soft, it's awesome! YES, his feces are a little bit stinky.. that's the bad part, but I highly recommend this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dog's Digestive system Loves this food! We started out with Blue, and soon discovered they made changes to the food which did not agree with our new puppy's sensitve stomach... we switched over to Nutro Natural Choice. This was the 3rd switch that really worked and now i have a healthy and happy Golden Retriever. It is difficult to truly determine what is in the dog food (aside from what is listed on the bag)...and we need to assume that it has what is needed to keep your dog vital. I would recommend firstly....what works for your dogs digestive system. and Nutro Natural Choice worked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Great Dane loves his food! Our 13 week old Great Dane loves this food! He is always excited to eat, and finishes his bowl in seconds. His stools are solid and are usually pretty clean. His coat is shiny and very soft. I have always only given Nutro to my dogs, and they have been very healthy. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best kibble for our GSD pup This is the kibble that our pup was on when we picked her up from the breeder. We gradually switched her to Fromm Large Breed Puppy formula, but that gave her diarrhea. We then switched her back to this kibble and have never looked back. Her coat is very shiny and she has firm stools. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Benefits Everyone! Our 5 month old golden retriever puppy has loved this product since she could eat solid food. Her stool has never been runny and people are always complementing her extremely soft and shiny coat. Our family swears by Nutro Natural Choice.
