IS THIS YOUR FIRST BAG OF ESSENTIALS? With the first bag of ESSENTIALS comes a nutritional lifestyle change. Gradually phase in ESSENTIALS over 4-7 days, or make the change from one day to the next which works equally well. The most important point is to adjust daily portions to suit your pet. Overfeeding will result in softer stools.
We therefore advise that you spend the first 2-3 weeks identifying the correct portion size. When your pet’s stools are solid, and your pet feels satisfied, you have found the correct portion size. All you have to do now is enjoy all the benefits of ESSENTIALS.
TIP: Start by feeding your pet 10% less than usual and adjusting from there. You are always welcome to contact us for feeding advice and guidance.

WORDS OF ADVICE When a dog is castrated or sterilized, its mental focus and hormone balance changes. This affects the dog’s nutritional needs. CONTOUR will give your dog a natural fuller feeling; reducing overeating which leads to obesity. Overweight dogs will lose weight on CONTOUR, assuming the owner follows our recommended serving quantities. Once the ideal weight is reached, continue serving at a slightly increased portion size.
