(Based on a standard 8 oz dry measuring cup)
Every dog is a little different so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size, activity level, breed and environment. Divide the total cups per day by the number of times you feed your dog per day. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust as needed.
|Weight (lbs)||Cups per day|
|6 - 10||¼ - 1¼|
|20 - 35||1¼ - 1¾|
|35 - 50||1¾ - 2¼|
|50 - 65||2¼ - 2¾|
|65 - 80||2¾ - 3¼|
|80 - 95||3¼ - 3¾|
|95 - 115||3¾ - 4¼|
Dogs over 115 lbs: Add 1/4 cup per additional 10 lbs.
Combination Feeding: If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount fed by ½ cup, for every 6 oz of wet food.
Calorie Content: This food contains 3,660 kcal per kilogram or 421 kcal per cup ME (metabolizable energy) on an as fed basis (calculated).
This food is formulated for adult, non-reproducing dogs over one year old as puppies and pregnant or nursing mothers have special nutritional requirements. It is important to slowly transition your dog from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness® each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness® CORE® by day 7.
CORE is highly palatable so your dog may tend to eat more of this food. Watch initially to see if you need to adjust regular eating patterns. Give your dog access to clean, cool fresh water at all times and feed Wellness® CORE® wet food in combination whenever possible, to increase the level of water in your dog's diet. Nutrition is the foundation of wellbeing, but be sure to give your dog plenty of love, exercise and see your veterinarian regularly!
