Using the chart, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your puppy per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every puppy is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust when needed. Dry and wet food in combination will help to increase the level of water in your puppy's diet. If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount by 1/2 cup for every 6 oz. of wet food.

Transitioning: Gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Classic Puppy Recipe each day.
