Puppies begin to eat solid food at 3-4 weeks of age. Keep Lone Star® Puppy Food available to your puppies at all times. If water is
added, use no more than one part warm (not hot) liquid to three parts Puppy Food, changing frequently to ensure freshness. After
weaning at six to eight weeks of age, puppies will normally eat dry or moistened food at will. Feed very young puppies three times a
day, older puppies twice a day. Use the recommended daily feeding chart provided as a guide. Feed to maintain ideal body condition.
Slight appetite changes and occasional digestive upsets are normal in puppies. If upsets become severe or linger longer than a day
or two, contact your veterinarian.
Lone Star® Puppy Food is easy to feed. No need to add anything for taste or nutrition.
GESTATION & LACTATION: Lone Star® Puppy Food provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female’s good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation.
SWITCHING TO LONE STAR PUPPY FOOD: Changes in your pet’s feeding habits should be made gradually. When changing over to Lone Star® Puppy Food, first substitute small amounts of dog’s current food. Then over the next week to 10 days, increase the amounts of Puppy Food while decreasing amounts of the other food, until your pet’s diet contains 100% Puppy Food.
WATER: Provide your puppy with plenty of fresh water in a clean container daily. For your pet’s health, see your veterinarian regularly. Store in a cool dry place. Wash hands after handling dog food.
