Puppy Feeding Guidelines for Volhard Dog Nutrition (Updated information!) After a collaborative effort between Wendy Volhard (Founder of VDN), Jennifer Carter (VP of Marketing and Sales), and Brian & Lisa Berg (Owners of VDN), we’ve made a few updates to the Puppy Feeding Guidelines. We’ve heard from several sources that the previous instructions were a little confusing. We hope this new method will make it more understandable and easier to feed your precious pups!
PUPPY FEEDING GUIDELINES (7 weeks to 7 months through teething)
NDF2: Step 1: Weigh your puppy. Step 2: Double the amount of food designated for your puppy’s weight. ---Example: Puppy weighs 12 lbs - feed for a 25 lb dog. Step 3: Feed the amount of food calculated in Step 2, four times a day. ---Example: Puppy should be fed for a 25 lb dog which is 1⁄4 cup NDF2, 1⁄4 cup protein and 1⁄2 cup water. This equals 1 feeding. Step 4: Feed the amount identified in Step 3, four times a day; one meal at 8 am, one at noon, one at 4 pm and the last at 8 pm. ---Example: Daily amount equals 1 cup NDF2, 1 cup protein and 2 cups water. Step 5: Weigh your dog weekly to see change and/or weight gain. Gradually increase the amount you feed as your puppy grows. ---Example: Puppy’s weight increased to 20 lbs from 12 lbs at the start. You will now feed for a 40 lb dog. Follow steps above. When the puppy is finished teething, reduce feeding to three times a day and decrease the amount slightly so the dog maintains a healthy weight. Around 6 to 7 months, reduce to two feedings following the guidelines for the weight of your dog.
