Meat Protein vs. Meat Protein Meal

Many pet food companies promote their products as chicken or meat sources at significant levels. Such protein sources may be 75 percent water or more. So, when moisture is lost during the pet food production process, the level of actual meat remaining is substantially less.

For Native performance dog food, chicken or lamb is the preferred protein source and contains less than 10% water – meaning the level of actual meat remains high and is truthfully the first ingredient on the label after processing.

For Puppies

Puppies may start nibbling around 4-5 weeks of age. You may feed Native Level 3 dry, but moistening may enhance acceptance. If desired, self-feeding may be started at any age after weaning. If puppies are not self feeding, but on a schedule, feed them 3 times per day up to 6 months of age and 2 times per day from 6 months to 1 year of age. Provide plenty of fresh water.

For Pregnant Females

Using the feeding directions, offer 50% more food during pregnancy.

For Lactating Females

Using the feeding directions, offer 2-3 times the normal amount of food.
