Feeding instructions:
Retriever® Bites & Bones Dog Food may be served moist or dry. Either way, it will provide your dog with complete, balanced nutrition. To serve moist, simply add one part warm water to four parts Retriever® Bites & Bones Dog Food. Stir until pieces become moistened. Feed while warm.

A dog should be maintained in good body condition and not allowed to become overweight. The food intake required to maintain good body condition will vary depending on age, activity level, environment as well as other factors. Consequently, the food requirement for each dog will vary, and should be adjusted accordingly. Use the standard chart below as a guide. Hardworking dogs or dogs exposed to cold weather may require 2-3 times these amounts.

Puppies: Puppies begin to eat solid food at 3-4 weeks of age. Add warm water to soften the food and after 8 weeks, mix with water or feed dry. Feed puppies all the moistened Retriever® Bites & Bones Dog Food they will consume at intervals throughout the day, or use the chart as a guide and feed approximately twice as much as suggested. If fed moistened, do not serve more than what the puppies will consume in a thirty-minute period to ensure product freshness. If fed dry, food may be kept before the puppies at all times. After one year of age, follow adult feeding instructions.

Pregnancy and Nursing: Retriever® Bites & Bones Dog Food provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female's good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.

Retriever® Bites & Bones Dog Food is formulated to meet the nutritional needs of normally active dogs. Quality ingredients are formulated in just the right amounts to provide everything dogs are known to need for complete and balanced nutrition - No supplements are necessary, even the most finicky dog will love the nutritious, crunchy nuggets.

Feeding Tip: Changes in your pet's feeding habits should be made gradually. When changing over to Retriever® Bites & Bones Dog Food, first substitute small amounts of Retriever® Bites & Bones Dog Food in place of your pet's current food. Then over the next week to 10 days, increase the amounts of Retriever® Bites & Bones Dog Food, while decreasing amounts of his other food, until your pet has 100% Retriever® Bites & Bones Dog Food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dog food, Great price, Great for dog coats I used to feed my dogs pedigree then tried the retriever bones n bits. My dogs LOVE it, my bank account loves it and there was an added bonus. After feeding it to my dogs for about a month I noticed how soft and shiney their coats got. Friend always comment on how great their coats look. Since then that is all I feed them. I have 5 dogs ranging in size from 35 lbs -90lbs. They all love it and I can feed them all for around 40.00 a month (2 fify lbs bags).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great dog food Was using Ol' Roy and the dogs were getting thin and their coats were awful. Switched to Pedigree and Purina. The price was outragous since we were going threw 100 lbs. a month. Decided to try this and have been using it now for about five years. Coats are beautiful, dogs are healthy. And I'm not paying as much a month as I was on the name brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent We switched from Pedigree and Beneful to using Retriever because of the price and the dogs love the food. Our one dog had allergies and the Retriever seems to help maintain his coat and skin condition. Best value out there.
