Since 1926, The Nutro Company has been a leader in natural pet food with unmatched nutrition, taste and quality. We prepare each batch ourselves, 100% produced in our own U.S. facilities to ensure that all of what we&*#396;ve learned goes into every bag of Natural Choice dog food. Which includes using only the highest-quality natural ingredients, fortified with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to create formulas that deliver premium natural nutrition that's targeted to your dog's unique needs. We include real chicken as our first ingredient, as well as other wholesome natural ingredients, such as whole brown rice and sunflower oil, to please even the most selective palates, guaranteed. Small breed puppies not only spend the majority of their time indoors, but are also groomed frequently. This lifestyle lends itself to skin sensitivity. Our patented levels of Linoleic Acid, Zinc and B Vitamins provide a moisture barrier for skin & coat nourishment. Our puppy product has been precisely formulated with targeted levels of protein and fat to keep up with the higher energy needs of a small breed puppy. Small breed puppies have a high requirement for energy and nutrients from food in order to support their rapid growth rate. Our SMART START Formula with DHA and balanced minerals supports a small breed puppy's growth and development. Developing puppies need the right balance of calcium and phosphorus to build strong teeth for life.
Feeding guidelines: These are the recommended feeding ranges for puppies. These guidelines should be adjusted as needed to obtain optimum weight. Puppies: From 3 to 5 weeks of age, moisten food and feed frequently. From 6 weeks of age, feed the suggested amount in three meals per day until 6 months of age, then twice daily until 12 months. Pregnant Bitches: During pregnancy, offer 50% more than the amount shown for puppies 29-52 weeks of age. Lactating Bitches: Offer at least two to three times the amount shown for puppies 29-52 weeks of age. If feeding Nutro Natural Choice Dog Food for the first time, we suggest you blend increasing amounts of Nutro Natural Choice Small Breed Puppy Chicken & Whole Brown Rice Formula Dog Food with your old food for 6 days. Keep fresh drinking water available at all times, provide plenty of exercise and see your veterinarian regularly. Serve dry or lightly moistened. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing in a cool, dry location. Note: 1 cup = 1 standard 8 oz. measuring cup.
