  • Feeding Guide

    How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.

    Provide specific feeding instructions for your patient.
    Daily Feeding Recommendations are only a guide and a place to start.
    Grams are the most accurate form of measurement; cups are estimated from grams.
    Monitoring your patient's condition will assure the nutritional recommendation provides the best results.
    Gradually transition to this new food for 7 days or more. Some dogs may need longer than 7 days to transition to a new food. Be patient and consistent.
    Reinforce with clients to feed Prescription Diet dry food, canned food, & treats exclusively.

    Avoid transitioning to the new food during periods of illness or hospitalization. A food aversion may develop, causing decreased acceptance of the food when the dog is feeling better.
