Feeding Guidelines

Adjust food to maintain ideal body weight. Always provide fresh drinking water. 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 until 18 months (24 months for giant size dogs). Gestation/Lactation: During gestation, feed up to 2 times the amount shown for puppies 6 to 9 months. Feed lactating females as much food as they will eat to maintain weight. Amounts will differ depending on litter size. Every cup of our food is nutrient dense so your dog gets the right amount of calories in a complete and nutritious meal. To help maintain freshness, seal bag tightly and store in a cool, dry location.

Great Food!
favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite| Laur

I have a Rottie pup who has very sensitive skin, I tried a few didferent foods before arriving at this one and now I'm hooked! (and so is she!) This food has not only made her coat shiner and brighter but I can also see a difference in her body weight, she has now lost that 'puppy fat' & is a lean, healthy dog who is full of energy! I would recommend this food to anyone with a large breed puppy!

favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite| kalikool

i have 6 month rottweiler. have fed blue buffallo, wellness and nutro natural choice in the past. I first started him on natural choice but then tried blue and then wellness because people said they were "better" than nutro. he was doing well on blue and wellness but his stool just would not become solid.... it was always messy. i put him back on natural choice and he is doing well. of course every dog is different so what might be good for some might not be for others but for my dog it has been great. i always get asked "how do you make his coat so soft and shiney?".... but best of all... SOLID STOOL AGAIN!.
