Ask your veterinarian for specific feeding instructions for your pet. Daily Feeding Recommendations are only a guide and a place to start. Grams are the most accurate form of measurement; cups are estimated from grams.

For best results:

– Gradually transition to this new food for 7 days or more.

– Exclusively feed the recommended Prescription Diet dry and wet foods.

– Keep fresh water available at all times.

– Have your veterinarian monitor your pet's condition.

– To prevent suffocation, keep the packaging out of the reach of pets & children.
