REAL QUALITY AND VALUE FOR MONEY
Great Barko has been formulated to meet or exceed the nutritional specifications recommended by the National Research Council, Academy of Sciences, U.S.A. By weight Great Barko is higher in protein and contains considerably less water than either fresh meat or canned dog food and is balanced for other essential nutrients such as fat, fibre, calcium, phosphorus, vitamins and minerals.
Introduce Great Barko gradually and increase the amount fed over a number of days. Great Barko is a dense food and will weigh more per cup than many other foods. This can initially lead to over consumption, to avoid this it is recommended that Great Barko be fed by weight and not by volume.
These feeding recommendations are a guide only and will vary depending on activity level, breed and weather conditions. As a general guide small dogs will consume approximately 1.5% of bodyweight and large dogs around 1% of bodyweight. Very active dogs may require up to twice the normal amount and lactating bitches two to three times the normal amount. Adjust the amount fed based upon the body condition of your dog.
Ensure cool, fresh water is available at all times. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
