*Not recognized as an essential nutrient by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles

TruFood Puppy Chicken & Chicken Liver Recipe is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for growth and gestation/lactation including growth of large size dogs (70 lbs or more as an adult).

This food is formulated for puppies and pregnant or nursing mothers who 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® TruFood® each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness TruFood by day 7.

Nutrition is the foundation of wellbeing, but be sure to give your dog plenty of fresh water, love and exercise and visit your veterinarian regularly!

Combination Feeding

If feeding with Wellness wet food, reduce dry amount by ⅓ cup (34 g) for every 6 oz (170 g) of wet food.

For Pregnant or Nursing Dogs 

Since DHA is transferred to puppies in mother’s milk, we recommend feeding this during pregnancy and nursing. When pregnant, feed up to 50% more food according to body weight for 12 mos. For nursing dogs, allow her to eat at will.

Every puppy is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size, activity level, breed and environment. Please use feeding guidelines as an initial recommendation and adjust as needed.
