Dog Feeding Guide
It is better to introduce Super Premium foods by mixing with your dogs usual food and increasing the amount of Flint River Ranch over several days. It will take time for your dog to adjust to the rich, easy to digest, Super Premium quality. A sudden change in any food source may be a shock to your dogs digestive system. You may notice loose stool. If so reduce the amount being mixed with the old product until your dog adjusts.
Because the cracked Kibble is high density, you feed 20% - 25% less than other foods. Each serving delivers maximum nutrition without fillers, so you'll also notice a lower stool volume and less clean-up.
Feed your dog once or twice a day. Food requirements vary depending on climate, breed of dog and exercise activity. Feed an amount that will maintain your dog's weight.
Have plenty of fresh water available.
Premium food is very rich and has little in the way of useless fillers - during a change to a premium food, some pets may have a softer stool. A premium food will start cleaning the pet's digestive tract rather than just passing though the system. In time you will have a firmer, much smaller stool for easy clean-up.
Humans and pets both have to push away from the table. We find many pet owners that have switched to Flint River Ranch products still feeding the amount of food they formally fed. With concentrated Flint River Ranch super premium foods, it is best to feed at least 25% less. Pets, like humans, require a little adjustment over a period of time to the stomach and reduce their food intake. During this period of reducing the amount fed to a dog, add lightly cooked vegetables of all types - carrots, rice, broccoli, potatoes, celery, green beans and pasta. This is great for your dog's health.
Keep in mind, when you feed a diet that is low in protein and fat, sometimes the pet will eat more than they should in order to satisfy their taste buds. Improper feeding is the greatest cause of a pet being overweight (along with those extra treats from the dinner table), not the protein content or quality of the food.
DO THE TASTE TEST !
Show your dog how much you love him. Take two clean bowls. Place your regular dog food in one and the Flint River Ranch Food in the other. Watch what happens. YOUR DOG WILL TELL YOU WHICH THEY PREFER !
COMPARE - WITH THE "BLOAT" TEST
In one bowl place 1/4 cup Flint River oven-baked dog food. In a second bowl place an equal amount of any other dog food. Add warm water to cover and shake. Keep the food covered by adding water as needed. At the end of the day you will find that the Flint River Ranch food has broken down and has not expanded. Depending upon the brand of the second food, it may have expanded in bulk 2 to 3 times the original size. Many professionals believe food that expands can cause a serious bloat problem in your dog's stomach.
Proper diet is not only important for humans, it is the most basic aspect of a pet's lifestyle. Flint River Ranch food is formulated to help the animal's body to holistically heal itself through proper nutrition. Benefits are soon noticeable in the pet's shiny coat, healthy skin and energy level.
What is important is the type, not the amount , of the protein available in the pet's food. The secret to Flint River's great nutrition is how many nutrients are present in a pet's food and how efficiently they are utilized when digested.
