Divide the amount shown into 2 to 3 feedings daily.

***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/110 g  of Nutrisource Small & Medium Breed Puppy Grain Free 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. 

Transition Instructions
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.
