Recommended Daily Feeding Guide

Ideal daily feeding portions will vary for different dogs, depending on age, size, breed, environment and activity levels. Because Carna4 is so concentrated in high quality nutrients that are easily absorbed by your dog, you will need to feed 10% to 15% fewer cups per day than most other dry foods. The amounts shown below are guidelines only and you should carefully monitor your dog’s weight, until an ideal balance is found:

8 fl. oz. Cups per Day

Less than

6 mos.

50 5 1/2 4 3/8 2 1/4 2 3/4 2
For large dogs, add 50 lb serving plus 1/4 cup of food per 10 lb of bodyweight over 50 lb.

You may choose to add water to soften Carna4 Easy-Chew for puppies and older dogs with biting difficulties. Add ¼ cup water to one cup of Carna4 and let stand for a minute to create softer nuggets.

 

Feeding Instructions:

Transitioning to Carna4: It will take several days for your dog to adjust to the richer nutrients in Carna4. Start by mixing one part Carna4 to four parts of your dog’s old food. Gradually increase the proportion of Carna4 over 7-10 days until you are feeding all Carna4. Remember that you will feed slightly fewer cups of Carna4 than other dry foods.

Your dog may have larger stools in the early part of his or her transition period as the better quality fiber in Carna4 helps to clean out the colon. This is a normal and healthy effect and you will see the stools return to a normal size later in the transition..

Feeding Your Puppy: Feed small quantities in 3 or 4 feedings at the same times each day, reducing to twice per day after 6 months. Divide the total cups per day from the chart above by the number of feedings to determine how much to set out each time. After 20 minutes, remove any food remaining in the puppy’s bowl.

Pregnant or Nursing Dogs: Add up to 50% more food per day for pregnant dogs after the first 6 weeks. When nursing, the mother should be allowed to free feed throughout the day. She may eat 2 or 3 times as much as a normal adult during this time.

Remember to:

  • Provide your dog with plenty of fresh, clean drinking water at all times.
  • Bring your dog to the veterinarian regularly.
  • Give your dog play and exercise every day.

 

Satisfaction Guarantee:

We are sure your puppy or dog will love the fresh taste of Carna4 and you’ll love the peace of mind that comes with feeding your pet the safest, most nourishing complete pet food available. If you are not completely satisfied for any reason, please return the remainder of your package to your pet specialty retailer for a full refund or call Carna4 at 1-855-4Carna4.
