Feeding Instructions

FIRST-TIME FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS

Switching to a plant-protein-based product must be done gradually. There are two ways to switch:

Option 1: gradually shift from the old product to the new - start by mixing the old food (to which your pet is already accustomed) with the new plant-protein-based kibble at a 1:4 ratio:

  • 1 part plant-based kibble: 4 parts old product

Then during the following two weeks gradually increase the proportion of plant-protein-based products. At the end of the second week, you should not be adding the old product.

Option 2: adding some extras - start by mixing 1 teaspoon of flaked nutritional yeast, margarine, or vegetable oil into each cup of the plant-based product.

Then during the following two weeks gradually reduce nutritional yeast, margarine, or vegetable oil to zero. Pets adapt to the new plant-protein-based product with no added flavor after 1-2 weeks.

PUPPIES
Puppies can be started on Gourmet Fondue Delicious Cheese Flavor as early as they begin to nibble at solid foods (usually 3 to 4 weeks of age). Until 6 months of age, puppies should be fed all of the moistened dog food they will consume at intervals throughout the day. If fed dry, the dog food may be kept before puppies at all times.

ADULT DOGS
Feed dry or mixed with water. If mixed with liquid, we suggest one part of liquid to one part of dry dog food. Your dog should be fed what he or she normally eats in a day.
The following rations are recommended for adult dogs with normal activity; however, portions will be slightly higher or lower, depending on your dog’s daily activity.

WATER
Provide clean water at all times.

*standard 8-oz cup
*** We recommend adding water in a 1:1 ratio. See the Hydration section.

Transition Tips

Gradual transition is the key to a successful transition.

Start by mixing 1 part of new food and 4 parts of old food.

During the next 2 weeks, gradually increase the amount of new food to 100%.

Older pets and picky eaters may need longer time and extra care to completely switch.

Digestive Enzymes can be used to harden up stool during transition.

Nutritional Yeast has a cheesy flavour, which cats and dogs love.

More transition tips on this page.

Hydration

Provide ample water to cats and dogs, and especially male cats due to their urinary anatomy.

Water aids with digestion and helps to avoid urinary issues. Water flushes out pathogens, heavy metals, and harmful drugs. 

Soak dry kibble in water to make moist food with 1:1 ratio (1 part kibble to 1 part water), and wait for at least 30 min before serving.

Use distilled water whenever possible.

Incorporate wet canned food for better hydration. Mix wet food with dry kibble to increase moisture level.

Use an electric water fountain to entice pets to drink more water.

Care Instructions

Store in a dark, cool place, tightly sealed.

For canned food: after opening, remove remaining leftovers and put into an airtight container for up to 3 days, keep it in the fridge. It can also be portioned out and frozen for later use or served as a frosty treat!

Brush your furry friends' teeth regularly.

Offer dental treats after moist food or add several dry kibbles to help scrape off the plague.

Monitor pH of your pet's urine - more info on this page.
