Your Dog is Unique!

Just like humans every dog is different when it comes to their dietary needs, this means your pets feeding requirements will vary depending on their breed, environment, age and activity. The below table and the information on the bag is to be used as a starting point, it is important to monitor your dogs weight and adjust their rations as needed. 

As it takes time for your dogs digestive system to adapt to the different nutrient levels in a new food it is important to transition your dog correctly from one food to the next to reduce the chance of your pet having an upset stomach. We suggest you take 7 days to transition your dog from the old food to the new food. Start with the majority of the old food and a small amount of the new food on day one and slowly increase the proportion of the new food while decreasing the old food until you are feeding 100% of the new food on day 7. 

We also recommend feeding your dog twice daily and ensure that your dog always has fresh, clean water available to drink. 

† Use a standard 8-oz. measuring cup. A standard 8 oz. measuring cup holds 3.47 oz. of NATURAL CHOICE Adult Lamb Meal & Rice. Serve dry or lightly moistened.  

Note: The following guidelines are for adult dogs and should be adjusted as needed to maintain optimum weight and condition. Feed your dog according to the level of activity. When feeding NATURAL CHOICE Dog Food for the first time, we suggest you blend increasing amounts of NATURAL CHOICE Small Bites Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Dog Food with your old food for 6 days.

This is the only food my Beagle can eat without having allergy/irritation problems. I haven't tried it so can't comment on the taste, but Woody thinks it is terrific. I don't think he tastes it either - he just inhales it!

Yes, I'd recommend this product to a friend

I have struggled for 6 months to find a food that agrees with my French Bulldog's super sensitive digestive system. Nutro was recommended to me by a fellow Frenchie owner and after about a month on this food, my dog is doing really well. Fingers crossed!
