Nutrapooch Feeding Guidelines

 

First Month Feeding Guidelines

While your dog acclimates to a new diet we suggest feeding a fractional diet of Nutrapooch and your dog’s old food. You may feed as follows:

  • Week 1: 1/4 Nutrapooch & 3/4 Old Food
  • Week 2: 1/2 Nutrapooch & 1/2 Old Food
  • Week 3: 3/4 Nutrapooch & 1/4 Old Food
  • Week 4: 100% Nutrapooch

Example for 50lb dog:

  • Week 1:  7.5 tablespoons of Nutrapooch per day
  • Week 2: 15 tablespoons of Nutrapooch per day
  • Week 3: 22.5 tablespoon of Nutrapooch per day
  • Week 4: 30 tablespoons (full meal) of Nutrapooch per day

Your first food delivery will cover your first two weeks of feeding according to this guideline, and your second delivery will cover weeks 3 and 4. After the first month you will move to our Full Time Feeding guidelines. If you feel your dog has acclimated well before the final week, you may switch over to full feeding sooner. If that’s the case please reach out to us at info@nutrapooch.com and request full meal delivery for weeks 3 and 4.

Topper Feeding Guidelines

The Nutrapooch NutraBoost Topper is meant to be fed as a supplement to a regular meal. With your subscription we provide you with enough NutraBoost Topper to last a full two weeks if you feed 1/4 Nutrapooch with each full meal.

Example for 50lb dog: Feed 7.5 tablespoons (about a quarter pound) each day to supplement current diet

Bone Feeding

Our Raw Meaty Marrow Bones are perfect for dental health and mental stimulation for your dog. Always monitor your dog when they chew bones. Smaller dogs, and dogs that are not used to raw bones or marrow bones may experience stomach upset when feeding the first time. When feeding your dog a Raw Meaty Marrow Bone it is recommended to monitor their intake.

Full Time Feeding Guidelines

For regular daily feeding we suggest feeding twice per day. Feeding guidelines are for weight maintenance. You may feed your dog slightly less if you are trying to cut down their weight, and feed slightly more if trying to add weight.

Daily Feeding

Feed 6 Tablespoons (3oz) for every 10lbs of weight.
Example: A 20lb dog would be feed 12 tablespoons per day, or 6 tablespoons per meal if fed twice per day.

1 tablespoon is equal to 1/2oz of food.

10lb = 6 tablespoons/day
20lb = 12 tablespoons/day
30lb = 18 tablespoons/day
40lb = 24 tablespoons/day
50lb = 30 tablespoons/day (1lb of food per day)
60lb = 36 tablespoons/day
70lb = 42 tablespoons/day
80lb = 48 tablespoons/day
90lb = 54 tablespoons/day
100lb = 60 tablespoons/day (2lbs of food per day)

Bone Broth Feeding

Feed 1-2 tablespoons of bone broth with a meal once per day.

Veggie Mix Feeding

Feed 1-2 tablespoons a day for dogs up to 25lbs.  For dogs 25-50lbs feed 2-3 tablespoons per day.  For dogs 50lbs+ feed 4-5 tablespoons per day.
