Helpful Tips

  • These amounts are a starting point only. Your pet may need less or more food to maintain proper weight. Adjust as needed. If you are unsure, ask your veterinarian.
  • For pregnant or nursing large breed dogs: Hill's® Science Diet® Puppy Original or Hill's® Science Diet® Lamb Meal & Rice Recipe are the recommended products.
  • Feeding this food for the first time? Mix increasing amounts of your pet's new food with decreasing amounts of the old food over a 7-day period.
  • Keep fresh water available at all times!
  • We recommend that you take your pet to the veterinarian at least twice a year for regular health check-ups.
  • Your pet's nutritional needs change with each lifestage. Continue to give him the same precise and balanced nutrition by transitioning your puppy to one of the Hill's® Science Diet® Adult dog foods once he reaches 1 year of age.
  • To prevent injuries, keep package out of reach of pets and children.
