Changes in your pet’s feeding habits should be made gradually. We recommend the following when transitioning to a new food.
Days 1-3: 25% Select • 75% old food
Days 4-6: 50% Select • 50% old food
Days 7-9: 75% Select • 25% old food
Days 10+: 100% Select
Food requirements will vary depending on breed, environment, temperament and stress factors. Working or show dogs will require additional amounts of food depending on their degree of activity or stress. Food intake should be adjusted to maintain optimum body condition.
Puppies may begin eating Select at about four weeks of age. Feed puppies all the moistened (with warm water, not hot) food they will consume three times a day until 6 months of age, then twice a day until 9 months of age. When feeding dry, Select may be kept before the puppies at all times. The amount fed should be sufficient to maintain steady, optimal growth and weight, but not so much as to stimulate excessive growth and/or weight gain at an early age.
Pregnancy and Nursing:
Select provides the extra nutrition needed for reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female’s good body condition. Food intake may increase up to four times the normal consumption amount.
ALWAYS KEEP FRESH, CLEAN WATER AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES
Schedule regular veterinarian visits for optimum health of all your animals.
