Feeding Instructions:

Proud Paws Ultra-Select 27/15 Dog & Puppy Food may be served moist or dry.  Either way, it will provide your dog with complete, balanced nutrition.  To serve moist, simply add one part warm water to four parts Proud Paws Ultra-Select 27/15 Dog & Puppy Food and stir until chunks become moistened; feed while warm.  If fed moistened, do not serve more than what the dog will consume in a thirty-minute period to ensure product freshness.

 

A dog should be maintained in good body condition and not allowed to become overweight.  The food intake required to maintain good body condition will vary depending on age, activity level, environment, and other stress factors.  Consequently, the food requirement for each dog will vary, and should be adjusted accordingly.  Use the standard chart below as a guide.  Pregnant, nursing, and hardworking dogs or dogs exposed to cold weather may require 2-3 times these amounts. 

 

When high activity or other factors require high feed intake, twice a day feeding is recommended.  However, for most normally active dogs over one year old, once a day feeding is usually sufficient.

 


For Puppies:

Puppies begin to eat solid food at 3-4 weeks of age. Add warm water to soften the food and after 8 weeks, mix with water or feed dry.  Feed pups all the moistened Proud Paws Ultra-Select 27/15 Dog & Puppy Food they will consume at intervals throughout the day, or use the chart below as a guide.  If fed moistened, do not serve more than what the pups will consume in a thirty-minute period to ensure product freshness.  If fed dry, food may be kept before the pups at all times.  After one year, follow adult feeding instructions.

Feeding Tip:

Changes in your pet's feeding habits should be made gradually.  When changing over to Proud Paws Ultra-Select 27/15 Dog & Puppy Food, first substitute small amounts of Proud Paws in place of your pet's current food.  Then over the next week to 10 days, increase the amount of Proud Paws, while decreasing the amount of his other food, until your pet is consuming only Proud Paws Ultra-Select 27/15 Dog & Puppy Food.

 

Remember to provide plenty of fresh, clean water in a clean container at all times.  Regular veterinarian visits are recommended to ensure your dog's good health.
