How it works:
Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance Original Ultra Premium Dry Dog Fornula is made with all natural ingredients. Animal protein sources include real chicken meat, and lamb and salmon meals. Wholesome grains (brown rice and oatmeal) provide fiber and vitamin E. Taurine is an amino acid added into this food and research studies link Taurine to cardiovascular health in dogs. Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acid supplements help maintain your dog's skin and promote a shiny coat.
Puppies: From six weeks to six months, feed three times a day. You may want to add a small amount of canned dog food for ease of feeding. The amount of canned dog food can be gradually decreased as the puppy matures. After six months, it is recommended to feed twice daily.
Adult Dogs: Adult dogs should be fed either once or twice per day. When you first start feeding Natural Balance Ultra Premium Dry Dog Formula, we suggest to start with the amounts recommended in the table below. Energy requirements vary with environmental conditions, temperature and activity of your dog. The amount of food should always be adjusted to suit your dog's needs.
Pregnant Dogs: A pregnant dog requires little or no increase of food during the first 6 weeks of pregnancy. During the remaining 3 weeks, the demand for nutrients will gradually increase and the food intake should increase accordingly. During the 7th week, the food intake should increase by approximately 10% and by 20% during weeks 8 and 9.
Lactating Dogs: Lactation is the most nutritionally demanding period in your dog’s life. Immediately after whelping, the nutritional demand for the new mother increases by 50% compared to the maintenance level. Nutritional requirements are dependent on the size of the mother and the number of nursing puppies. So as not to overwhelm the digestive system, the lactating mother should be fed 3 or 4 times per day. As a guideline, we suggest the following schedule:
• After whelping, feed 50% above maintenance level—feed in 3 equal meals per day.
• During the second week, feed twice the maintenance level—feed in 3 or 4 equal meals per day.
• During the third week, feed three times the maintenance level—feed in 3 or 4 equal meals per day.
• During the sixth week gradually reduce the food intake back to twice the maintenance level—feed in 3 equal meals per day.
• During weeks 7 and 8, feed 20% above maintenance levels—feed in 2 equal meals per day.
Tip: When switching your dog's diet, the change should be made gradually, by replacing the current food with increasing portions of Natural Balance Ultra Premium Dry Dog Formula. The change should be completed after 5 to 7 days.
Suggested Feeding Amounts:
Cups per day (8 oz. cup)
Storage: Store in a cool and dry place.
