It is recommended that you keep your dog in ideal body condition and not allow your dog to become overweight. The exact amount of food your dog requires will need to be adjusted according to age, activity and environment. But a good place to start is with these guidelines for an average, active, adult dog fed once daily.

Remember, when changing your dog's food or diet allow 7 - 10 days to ease the transition from your dog’s current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more of the new until you are feeding the new food exclusively. This gradual transition is important and will help to avoid any dietary upsets.

Always provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.

For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.
