As with all foods, please introduce a new food to your dog gradually. One way of doing this is to start by giving the dried food in very small quantities - either mixed with their existing food or as small training treats - and to gradually increase the amount of the new food slowly over a couple of weeks to minimise the risk of any tummy issues. Fresh water should be available at all times.
The table below gives general guidance for portion sizes based on a dog's weight. Please note that this a guide only and every individual dog is different due to age, health and activity levels. Innocent Hound's Air-dried Complete Dog Food is suitable for dogs from 12 months of age.
Innocent Hound's Air-Dried Complete Foods are nutrient dense and volume efficient which means that the volume and weight of this food required each day is relatively low compared to many other types of dog food. For example, Theo weighs 5kg and eats 110g of Innocent Hound British Lamb Casserole each day (he is very active), whereas when he would usually need around 275g of wet food each day.
