How Often Should I Feed My Dog?
A practical guideline is that puppies should be fed three times a day from weaning (3 to 6 weeks) to 4 months of age. After 4 months, they should be fed twice a day. Most dogs should continue to be fed twice a day throughout their life, although some pets do well with one feeding.
How Much Should I Give My Dog to Eat?
The amount to feed depends on the age, size, and activity level of the dog. Feeding guidelines, which list the daily recommended portion, are included on all of our packages. Start feeding with this amount and adjust according to your pet's needs. Remember to divide the portion accordingly if you feed more than once a day.
What Is The Best Way to Introduce a New Diet to My Dog?
When changing a dog's diet, it’s important to slowly introduce new food. Start by offering the dog's daily portion in a ratio of 25% new food to 75% current food. During the next three days, gradually increase the amount of new food and decrease the amount of the old food.
Is It Necessary to Feed Both Wet and Dry Food?
Wet food is an excellent treat that can be fed by itself or mixed with dry food. Although our wet dog foods are nutritionally complete and balanced, it is not necessary to offer wet food at every feeding. Our dry foods are formulated with high-quality protein sources such as chicken, lamb, or fish, and contain all of the essential nutrients pets need. The crunchy texture of dry food also promotes healthy teeth and gums and aids in overall good oral hygiene. In addition, our dry dog foods contain a dental enhancement to help block tartar buildup on teeth during and after meals.
Will My Dog Be Bored Eating the Same Food All the Time?
No. Boredom with food is a human trait. Dogs are creatures of habit and usually are happy with just one food. Dogs generally eat to meet their energy or nutritional needs. They have very short digestive systems, and if their diet is abruptly or constantly changed, digestive disturbances can occur. Also, constant changes can make a pet a finicky eater.
Is It All Right to Moisten Dry Food?
Adding water will not change the nutritional value of a dry pet food. However, once moisture is added, the food should be eaten relatively soon—and any uneaten portion discarded to avoid spoilage. Dry feeding our pet foods is usually encouraged because of the benefit to the pet's dental health.
