NUTRO Puppy Lamb Rice Recipe 

Limited Ingredient Diet Puppy FoodLamb & Rice Recipe

Puppies need a nutrient-rich, healthy puppy food with ingredients that help nourish growth. That’s why we use real Australian and New Zealand lamb and whole brown rice in our limited ingredient diet natural puppy food. It’s important that puppies get the optimal nutrition without added ingredients that could cause digestive problems. Our exclusive SMART START® Formula includes omega-3 fatty acids — EPA and DHA — which are essential for healthy growth and development. And, like all of our natural puppy food, this formula is fortified with vitamins, minerals and the perfect blend of nutrients. We guarantee a soft, shiny coat that makes a difference you can see.

Feeding Guidelines
These are the recommended feeding ranges for puppies. These guidelines should be adjusted as needed to obtain optimum weight.

Puppies: From 3 to 5 weeks of age, moisten food and feed frequently. From 6 weeks of age, feed the suggested amount in three meals per day until 6 months of age, then twice daily until 12 months.

Pregnant/Lactating Bitches:: During pregnancy, offer 50% more and during lactation offer at least two to three times more than the amount shown for puppies 29 to 52 weeks of age.

Keep fresh drinking water available at all times, provide plenty of exercise and see your veterinarian regularly. Serve dry or lightly moistened. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing in a cool, dry location.
