Native® Puppy is formulated to provide the quality nutrition required for growing puppies. The specific balance of protein and energy helps to support the controlled healthy growth desired in medium to large breed performance canines. For toy or small breeds with higher energy needs, consider feeding Native Level 3 or 4. Native Puppy is also suitable for adult dogs with light to moderate activity levels, including seniors and those that are pregnant or lactating.
NutriVantage® Nutrition Optimizer® for dogs is an exclusive blend of organic macromolecules, trace minerals, antioxidants, and chelating agents.

Your dog is part of the family – and you want your dog to enjoy a long, healthy life at your side.

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 meal 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.

Puppies may start nibbling around 4-5 weeks of age. You may feed Native Puppy 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.
Using the feeding directions, offer 50% more food during pregnancy.
Using the feeding directions, offer 2-3 times the normal amount of food.
