OTHER BENEFUL® DRY DOG FOOD FEEDING TIPS
FEEDING FOR REPRODUCTION* Beneful® dry dog food provides reproducing females the extra nutrition they need during gestation and lactation. Note that you may need to adjust the intake amount as needed to maintain her good body condition. This may mean doubling or even quadrupling her intake during lactation.
SWITCHING TO BENEFUL® Transition your dog from their previous food to Beneful® slowly to avoid dietary upsets. Make the change over 7-10 days, gradually adding more Beneful® and less of the previous food to your dog's dish each day.
PROVIDING FRESH WATER For your dog's health, don't forget to provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily and to see your veterinarian regularly, for a healthy and happy pet.
