Transitioning to Wellness: It is important to slowly transition your puppy from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to the new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness by day 7.
How to Feed Your Puppy: As puppies grow up they need to learn when, where and how to eat. Depending on age, puppies need to be fed at the same time and in the same place 2 - 4 times per day. Food should be removed after 20 minutes, if not eaten. In the beginning, puppy's food can be moistened with a little warm water.
Determining Feeding Portions: Looking at the chart below, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your puppy per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Wellness believes in feeding dry and wet food in combination whenever possible to help increase the level of water in your puppy's diet.
Every puppy is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size, activity level, breed and environment. Your vet can help determine your puppy’s optimal daily caloric intake for healthy growth and weight. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust as needed.
RECOMMENDED FEEDING PORTIONS (Based on a standard 8 oz dry measuring cup)
||6-11 WKS (CUPS/DAY)
||3-4 MOS (CUPS/DAY)
||5-7 MOS (CUPS/DAY)
||8-12 MOS (CUPS/DAY)
Combination Feeding: If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount by 1/3 cup for every 6 oz of wet food.
For Pregnant or Nursing Dogs: When pregnant, feed up to 50% more food according to body weight at 12 mos. For nursing dogs, allow her to eat at will.
