FEEDING DIRECTIONS FOR YOUR PET
You will feed less Brothers than other dog foods because it is a balanced source of concentrated nutrition without the extra carbs (potatoes, sweet potatoes, and grains) found in other dog foods.
Brothers superior nutrition is the result of optimum amounts of high quality calories and nutrients intricately balanced in relation to each other and to the whole.
Food calories are not created equal - 400 calories of other dog foods does not begin to compare to 400 calories of Brothers superior nutrition. Brothers has 30% to 36% human grade protein, added Digestive Enzymes, Selective Prebiotics, Encapsulated Probiotics, low glycemic Cassava Root as a carbohydrate binder (instead of grain, potato, or sweet potato), and the intricate balancing of nutrients to each other and to the whole.
We suggest you feed the recommended amount of Brothers to begin with, regardless of how much you were feeding of the old dog food, and adjust slowly from there. Overfeeding can cause a soft stool or diarrhea and is a sign to cut back on the amount of Brothers you are feeding.
When switching to Brothers Complete we recommend mixing Brothers Complete with the old food for a few days to as much as a week. Every dog is different and tolerates change at his or her own level but usually the worst that happens if the change is too fast is a loose stool. Below are the suggested daily feeding recommendations. The amount one feeds his or her dog varies with age, activity level, and environment, so it is best to monitor your dog regularly to determine the ideal feeding amount.
SUGGESTED DAILY RECOMMENDATIONS
Dog's Weight Amount of Food Per Day (cups)
6 LBS 1/4 Cup / Day
12 LBS 1/2 Cup / Day
25 LBS 1 Cup / Day
50 LBS 2 Cups / Day
75 LBS 2 1/2 to 3 Cups / Day
100 LBS 3 1/4 to 4 Cups / Day
Puppies can require as much as 50% to 100% more food during growth. It is important not to overfeed large breed puppies that will exceed 60-75 pounds when fully grown to allow their joints to form sufficiently before they must support the extra weight. You should be able to feel their ribs but not see them. Check their weight at least once a week and adjust to maintain an ideal weight.
