Feeding Guide For Little Bites

TREATS / TOPPERS: If using Big Dog Little Bites as treats or toppers, integrate into your dog’s diet taking their total energy requirements into account.

MEALS: If using Big Dog Little Bites as your dog’s primary source of nutrition, feed 3 Little Bites per kg of body weight daily.

For puppies under 12 months, pregnant or lactating dogs or working active dogs with higher energy requirement, double the daily serve size.

For dogs 5 kg and over, consider Big Dog Big Bites or Big Dog raw patties for an economical feeding option for larger daily feeding amounts.

How to Rehydrate

To rehydrate Big Dog Freeze Dried Little Bites into healthy raw food simply add room-temperature water to the Bites, crumble and mix. For each Little Bite add 6 mL of water to reconstitute (a metric teaspoon is approx. 5 mL).

Watch this video to see how easy rehydrating freeze dried food is!

When using as treats or not rehydrating freeze-dried food, remember to have plenty of fresh drinking water available for your dog.
