Serve as is or rehydrate by adding warm water. If your dog does not drink plenty of water at mealtime, we recommend rehydrating. To rehydrate, crumble and add 1/4 cup of water for every two patties. When feeding dry, always make sure your dog drinks ample fresh water at mealtime.
Optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size, breed, and activity level. Please refer to the feeding chart below as an initial recommendation and adjust food amount as needed to reach desired weight goal.
When transitioning from a cooked food such as kibble, you should go slowly, typically transitioning over 7-10 days. Most people start with the following guideline and then adjust the timeframe as needed:
Days 1-3: 25% Stella & Chewy's along with 75% current diet Days 4-6: 50% Stella & Chewy' along with 50% current diet Days 7-9: 75% Stella & Chewy's along with 25% current diet Days 10-Forward: 100% Stella & Chewy's
It’s important to remember that some digestive upset is normal during a transition —this typically shows up in diarrhea, constipation or (very rarely) vomiting. This will eventually subside as your pet adjusts to the new food.
DAILY FEEDING GUIDELINES FOR ADULT DOGS
Puppies may need up to twice the amount of food as listed for an adult dog. For pregnant and nursing dogs, please check with your veterinarian as requirements vary depending on the number of puppies and stage of lactation. Fresh water should be available at all times. Optimal feeding mounts may vary with age, size, breed and activity level. Please use the feeding guidelines as an initial recommendation and adjust food amount as needed to reach desired weight goal.
