These feeding guidelines are suggested only, feeding amounts may vary by breed, activity level, temperament and climate.
Puppies Adjust feeding amounts to maintain steady growth and ideal body condition throughout your puppy’s growth period. Puppies that become larger Adult dogs will grow more slowly and for more months than small dogs. This product is meant to be fed to growing puppies and pregnant or nursing Adult dogs. Puppies should be fed 3 meals per day up to 6 months of age and then twice a day. Provide daily amounts of food divided into the smaller meals. Moisten food until just soft for the early weaning period. Pick up left over food and discard in order to maintain freshness. As puppies grow teeth and can bite dry food, reduce the amount of water added to the food. Amounts will depend on age, activity, environment and temperament. Helping to decrease dog obesity means keeping your puppy at ideal body condition throughout its growth and early Adulthood. Puppies that become small/medium size dogs (up to 70 lbs) can be transitioned to Natural Balance's All Life Stages Formulas at 9 - 12 months. Puppies that become larger size dogs (over 70 lbs) can be transitioned to Natural Balance's All Life Stage Formulas at 12 - 18 months.
Pregnant and Nursing Dogs Adjust feeding amounts in order to maintain ideal body condition. Feed multiple meals per day with daily amounts divided into smaller meals. Can be moistened. For pregnant dogs, minimal increase is needed during first 6 weeks of pregnancy. After 6 weeks, until whelping, increase amount of food up to 25% more than normal Adult maintenance amounts. For nursing dogs, begin increasing amount fed immediately after whelping. Depending on the size of the litter, the amounts needed to maintain ideal body condition will increase up to 50% more than normal Adult maintenance amounts.
Get your puppy off to a good start with a first and then regular veterinary visits. Keep fresh water available at all times.
When switching your pet's diet, we recommend transitioning from the current diet to any new Natural Balance Formula over a 5-7 day period. Replace 25% of the current diet with new Natural Balance Formula each day until they are fully transitioned. If you do not have any of your current formula to mix, reduce the amount of formula fed for the first few days, feeding smaller more frequent meals and increase over time. If your pet is more sensitive to change, please allow 10-14 days to fully transition onto the new formula.

RPAL has been invaluable to our group for the last 8 years by providing us access to high-quality foods, supplements, and supplies at a fraction of retail cost, RPAL helped us care for our fosters in a way that we could simply not afford otherwise. We always want to feed our foster pets premium foods and provide them with the best of everything. Without RPAL, we could never be able to do that on a consistent basis, for the numbers of rescued animals we are helping. RPAL literally is enabling us to save more pets and take better care of our fosters than we could possibly do on our own.”
