PREGNANT FEMALES Minimal increase needed during first 6 weeks. Weeks 7, 8, and 9 increase up to 25%.
LACTATING FEMALES Immediately after whelping, nutritional demand increases by 50% compared to maintenance levels. During peak lactation (around 4-5 weeks), increase feeding up to 300% of regular intake. Feed in 3 equal meals per day.
When switching your dog’s diet, we recommend that it should be done gradually over 5-7 days, increasing the amount each day with the present diet as sudden change in diet may result in digestive disturbances.
See your veterinarian regularly. Keep fresh water available.
