For dogs over 100 lbs: add 1/4 cup per additional 10 lbs.

Divide the total per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level. Please use the information in the chart as an initial recommendation only and adjust when needed.

Dry and wet food in combination will help increase the level of water in your dog's diet. If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount by 1/2 cup for every 6 oz of wet food.

Transition Instructions

When switching your dog's diet, we recommend that it be done gradually over a 5-7 day period.�
