Adjust food to maintain ideal body weight. Always provide fresh drinking water. Puppies up to 6 months: Feed suggested daily amount in 3-4 meals per day. 6 months to adult: Feed in 2-3 meals per day. 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.

My Puppy Loves his Nutro
favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite| kimber

Our Puppy Toby loves his Nutro puppy food. He gets so excited when it is time to eat. He has never had diarrhea or any problem while on this food. It keeps him regular and is gentle on his stomach. He will soon be moving onto adult food and I expect a smooth transition according to the lady at the pet store, who also uses Nutro for her dog. We also use this puppy food for treats while training him. I'm so glad it has fish oil in it. I've read alot about how healthy it is for canines and adults alike for their brain development and heart health.

Penny Lane Loves it!
favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite| PennyLaneLab

Our little yellow lab was such a gift from day one! Rescued from a puppy mill by a local agency with her siblings, she was the last one standing on adoption day, tiny with huge paws and simply adorable. We saw her and fell in love! On our way home we stopped at the pet store and the helpful clerk recommended Nutro small bites. I've never heard of it, afterall most commercial or "big box stores" don't carry it. We gave her chicken formula (small bites for her tiny mouth) a try. The result: Our little gal is "regular", happy, energetic, smart and has soft, shiny, light yellow fur that always draws a lot of attention! This food helped give our girl the vital nutrients she was lacking from her sad situation, making our once undernourished Penny Lane the healthy, yellow lab puppy she deserves to be. I do want to say that we ran out of dog food and in desperate need, I stopped by a retailer near my work and picked up some mid-priced puppy chow. we used it for 3 days and noticed her "Potty" was hard, black and entailed an almost painful process for our Penny. My husband and I knew it was the food and were seriously shocked how dog food could make such a difference in not only the well-being and health, but the attitude of our pup. We threw the old food away. For us, Nutro is the only dog food going forward. I'm excited to know that I am feeding her the best and love the way the food will grow WITH her. I would recommend it to absolutely anyone and everyone! Oh and I just wanted to add, if your puppy is a finicky eater - TRY THIS! We never had to water it down, add gravy or beg her to eat - SHE LOVES IT!
