NutriSource Small Bites High Plains Select Grain Free Dry Dog Food
NutriSoruce’s Grain Free Small Bites High Plains Select is an all-life-stages, chicken-free, potato-free, pea-free dry dog food that features smaller kibble pieces to better suit your small-breed puppy or adult dog. This diet includes USA-sourced beef, farm-raised trout, USA-sourced turkey, and menhaden fish meal. Garbanzo beans, red lentils, and green lentils provide sources of protein, fiber, and low-glycemic carbohydrates, which help to stabilize blood sugar levels and prevent excess weight gain. This highly palatable diet is slightly higher in protein, fat, and calories than most other diets in NutriSource’s selection, making it a great option for puppies and active adult dogs who have sensitivities or allergies to grains, chicken, potatoes, or peas!

|**Amount of food consumed will vary based on activity level, age, breed, and environment. Standard 8-oz/250 cc measuring cup holds approximately 3.9 oz/111 g of Nutrisource® Small Bites High Plains Select Dog Food. At 5-7 months and again at about 12 months, your puppy will automatically reduce the amount consumed. This is due to a natural reduction in growth rate and the reduced need for calories. Consult your veterinarian if you believe your dog is too thin or overweight. Remember it is important to have clean, fresh water available for your dog at all times.|
It takes time to transition your pet to a new food without having digestive upset. Over the course of one to two weeks, you should gradually switch from the old food to the new. Start with a 75% old to 25% new mix, then 50:50, and finally 25:75, until you have switched to NutriSource food entirely.
