Once the puppy has been weaned, start by feeding 4-6% of the puppy's ideal body weight per day, ideally spread over three or four meals per day.
Once the puppy reaches around 5-6 months of age, you may reduce the number of feeds to twice per day, and gradually reduce the amount to be fed to around 2-3% by the time the dog has achieved full size.
Remember - smaller breed dogs mature much faster than bigger breeds. We therefore suggest that a terrier should be fed the adult quantity of Nutriment by the time they reach around 10 months of age - whereas a Great Dane puppy will still require 4-6% for the first 18 months.
*Nutriment foods are intended to be fed to your dog raw, to mimic the raw meat, bones, fruit and vegetables the animal would eat naturally in the wild.
To defrost the product, we suggest leaving somewhere cool (not warm) overnight. If you forget to take food out to defrost, you may microwave it on defrost, but be careful NOT to allow the food to cook.
If the food is still partially frozen at feeding time, add some warm water from a kettle and allow to sit for five minutes.
You should therefore never cook our products before feeding to your pet
