FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS FOR ADULTS: Start with the suggested amount of Life’s Abundance per day. Use the “Suggested Daily Amount” as a guideline. You can increase or decrease the amount you feed by more or less depending on your dog’s weight and body condition. Be sure to keep fresh drinking water available at all times.

FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREGNANT OR NURSING DOGS: Start with “Suggested Daily Amount” in the table below during early pregnancy. Needs will likely increase as much as 50% in late pregnancy, and may as much as triple during heavy nursing periods. Keep food available for nursing bitches at all times.

FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS FOR PUPPIES: When ready to eat solid food, begin feeding moistened kibble and “free feed” until fully weaned, between 6-8 weeks old. After weaning, feed the “Suggested Daily Amount” of dry kibble according to weight and add at least 25% more. Individual Meal Feeding: From 8 weeks to 4 months, divide the daily amount and feed 3-4 meals in a 24 hour period. From 4-6 months, divide the daily amount and feed 2-3 meals in a 24 hour period. Free Feed: Measure the entire daily amount into a dish and allow your puppy to eat at will over the course of a 24 hour period. This method of feeding may lead to obesity. Food requirements may vary for individual puppies.
