Natural Balance is pleased to announce the re-introduction of Duck Meal to our Ultra Dry formulas. As promised, after 18 months of searching for high quality Duck Meal to meet our rigorous standards, we have secured a consistent supply at the quality level we require. In March 2009, we removed Duck Meal from our products because of a shortage in Duck Meal at the quantity and quality needed to meet our standards. We are happy to be able to once again have this ingredient, as it will enhance the already outstanding performance of this product.

Since this is a slight change, we recommend a gradual introduction by replacing the current food with increasing portions of the new Ultra Formulas with Duck Meal. The change should be over a 5 to 7 day weaning period. We have fed this formula to our own Natural Balance pets and have had great results.

The Adult Adult dogs should be fed either once or twice per day.

Minimal increase needed during first 6 weeks.

Immediately after whelping, the nutritional demand increases by 50% compared to maintenance levels. Feed in 3 equal meals per day.

Working Dogs Based on the work your dog will be asked to perform, the nutritional requirements will vary accordingly. As the work load increases, the demand for protein and fat increases proportionally. Dogs in hard training will generally require twice the maintenance levels.

The Older Dog As your dog begins to age, his energy expenditure will decrease. Decreasing the amount of food accordingly will allow for the maintenance of proper body weight for less active dog.
