  • How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.

    DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS

    These ranges are a starting point only because animals' needs vary.1 Adjust the feeding amount to maintain optimal body weight.

    PUPPIES

     VetEssentials™ Puppy Mini formula should be fed from weaning until maturity at 1 year old. The daily amount required by individual puppies may vary substantially. Therefore the amount should be adjusted to maintain optimal body weight, and fed as 2-4 meals per day (the number may decrease with age).

    PREGNANCY

    The amount of  VetEssentials™  Puppy Mini formula to feed pregnant bitches depends upon the stage of pregnancy. Often pregnancy is not recognized until the 4th or 5th week. LACTATION

    Lactating bitches should be fed unrestricted amounts of  VetEssentials™ Puppy Mini (i.e. fed  ad libitum) until weaning is completed.
