Feeding Guide

Daily Feeding Guide

Helpful Tips

  • For puppies/pregnant dogs: begin by feeding the suggested daily amount. Your pet may need less or more food to maintain proper weight. Adjust as needed. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian.
  • For nursing dogs: keep food available at all times.
  • Feeding this food for the first time? Mix increasing amounts of your pet's new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period.
  • When using with canned food, decrease the amount of dry food to avoid overfeeding.
  • Keep fresh water available at all times!
  • We recommend that you take your pet to the veterinarian at least twice a year for regular health check-ups.
  • Your pet's nutritional needs change with each lifestage. Continue to give him the same precise and balanced nutrition by transitioning your puppy to one of the Hill's® Science Diet® adult dog foods once he reaches 1 year of age.
  • Science Diet is available in a wide variety of dry and canned foods and treats for your puppy's unique needs.
