Adult Dogs: The daily amount of food that adult dogs require is influenced by their environment, activity, size, and breed. The amount fed should be adjusted according to the dog’s appetite and body condition. Extremely active or hard-working dogs may require and consume 1 ½ to 3 times the amount of food indicated for their weight on the chart. Once per day feeding is adequate for adult dogs.
Puppies: Nursing puppies are ready to start nibbling on moistened solid food at 3-4 weeks of age. To serve moist, simply add one-part warm water to four parts Black Gold Explorer Puppy Recipe Dog Food. Stir until the pieces become moistened. Feed your dog while the food is still warm. Allow them to eat as much as they can consume in a 30-minute period. Nursing puppies should be fed at least 3-4 meals per day. After they are fully weaned (6-8 weeks), you can feed dry puppy food in 2-3 meals per day. Find the puppy’s approximate weight and age in the feeding chart to determine the amount of food you should feed daily. After one year, follow the feeding chart for adult dogs.
Pregnancy and Nursing: Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female’s good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.
Remember to provide plenty of fresh, clean water in a clean container at all times. For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.
