PUPPIES Feed up to two times per pound of body weight over adult levels.
PREGNANT FEMALES Minimal increase needed during the first six weeks. Weeks 7, 8, and 9 increase up to 25%.
LACTATING FEMALES Immediately after whelping, nutritional demand increases by 50% compared to maintenance levels. During peak lactation (around 4-5 weeks), increase feeding up to 300% of regular intake. Feed in three equal meals per day.
When switching your dog’s diet, we recommend that it should be done gradually over 5-7 days, increasing the amount each day with the present diet as a sudden change in diet may result in digestive disturbances.
See your veterinarian regularly. Keep fresh water available.
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 Zignature food entirely.
