Serve dry or slightly moistened in a clean bowl. Use this chart as an initial guide and adjust accordingly. Feed twice daily. Always provide fresh clean water.
Pregnant females, increase feed intake beginning week 7 of gestation up to 25%. Lactating females increase feeding up to 50%, feeding a minimum of 3 times per day. Feeding requirements vary depending on breed and litter size. Monitor body condition of pregnant and lactating females and adjust feed accordingly.
When transitioning to our dry food from another brand, we typically recommend a 7-day transition period. Begin by introducing a small amount of FirstMate with the old food on the first day. Gradually increase the amount of the new food, decreasing the amount of the old food over the course of a week until they are eating exclusively FirstMate.
