These guideline amounts are a starting point and your dog may need more food depending upon age, activity and temperament. This represents the total recommended volume of food per day. You should divide the total recommended feeding amount by the number of times you feed your dog per day to get the actual portion size per feeding. When switching to Ol' Blue from another dog food, gradually mix the foods together for a minimum of three days, increasing the amount of Ol' Blue each day until the ration consists entirely of the new food.
*Not recognized as an essential nutrient by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles.
The small bites variety of Ol' Blue is a stellar example of the benefits of dealing with small companies whose decison makers are accessible and amiable to customer suggestions. In the summer of 2012 we were petitioned by a county animal shelter who loved our food but were unable to feed it to their small dogs and puppies due to kibble size. To accomodate their needs we developed the Ol' Blue small bites. In addition to its size (1/3 of our traditional kibble), the food meets all of the AAFCO nutritional recommendations for puppies. In addition to all of our standard ingredients, the small bites formula contains chelated minerals, a digestibility supplement, and a palatability enhancer to encourage intake. We've had great success with a variety of breeds including pugs, poodles, cocker spaniels, min pins, chihauhaus, and terriers. We always welcome suggestions and input from our customers as we strive to best meet the needs of their pets. Availble in 25 lb bags as well as the traditional 50 lb bag.
