Daily Feeding Guide and Number of Packages Per Week
The amount in the chart below is the total amount to feed per day. If you feed your pet twice a day, divide this amount by 2 and feed that amount each time. Each pet is unique in their required caloric intake. Some factors include breed, activity level, age, genetics, and overall health. The recommended feeding guidelines below are just that, guidelines. We recommend you keep a close eye on your pet’s weight, weigh them frequently, and adjust as needed. If they gain weight, then you should feed the next lower amount. See Pet Weight for more information. If you have any questions about the amount to feed your pet, please contact us and we are happy to help.
Although most pets have no issues transitioning to OPK and many can eat 100% OPK at their next meal, some pets require a slower transition. Whenever you change to a new diet, it is best to err on the side of caution and transition your pet slowly. If your pet has a particularly sensitive stomach, or they develop sensitivities during the transition, then transition even more slowly than recommended. A suggested schedule is as follows:
First 3-7 days: 25% OPK, 75% old food
Next 3-7 days: 50% OPK, 50% old food
Next 3-7 days: 75% OPK, 25% old food
Next 3-7 days: 100% OPK!
