For dogs over 100 lbs: Add 1/3 cup per additional 10 lbs.
Using the chart above, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every dog 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. Puppies and pregnant or nursing females may consume two to three times the recommended daily amounts. Dry and wet food in combination will help to increase the level of water in your dog'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 57 day period, increasing the amount of Merrick Grain Free Real Venison + Chickpeas Recipe Dog Food each day.
