MILLIES WOLFHEART - COMPLETE WORKING AND SPORTING DOG FOOD
Feeding your dog Millies Wolfheart
1. All Millies Wolfheart recipes have a high meat content and also a high protein (from meat/fish only protein) content as well. Both the Salmon and Hunter mix need to be introduced gradually with 25% Millies and 75% old food during the first day, providing stools are acceptable increase to 50% for day 2 then day 3 to 4 try 75% and then 100%.
All our other recipes can be introduced very quickly and in most cases we suggest 50/50 the first 24 hours then if everything is fine the following day switch to 100% [please contact the team if you are unsure for guidance ]
2. Be careful how much you feed, carefully measure the food for the first couple of times, try using a cup or a mug and weigh the contents. Once you have done this a couple of time you will know exactly how much is there.
3. Always follow the feeding guidelines on the website and always start with the minimal amount for your size of dog, as this food is high quality and packed full of all the nutrients your dog needs, you will find you only have to feed a fraction of what you used to feed your dog with lesser quality food.
4. For best results feed dry however if your dog prefers add a cup of warm water (tap water will be fine) to the food and let it sit for a couple of minutes, this will allow the gravy to form.
5. Do not be tempted to over feed your dog, as Millies is extremely rich you only need to feed small amounts. If you do over feed your dog you will find the stools will become softer and even very loose as the body tries to process the food too quickly. If you are finding the stools are too loose then simply reduce the amount you are feeding by at least 25 % for 4 days to see if the stools start to firm up.

6. For best results we recommend you feed your dog at least twice daily, simply divide the amount as stated on the website into two+ meals, and you will find your dog not only much happier but the stools will be a lot firmer as well.
7. Do not be put off with Millies as the first day or so you may find the stools to be a bit soft, this is quite normal as the body is simply adjusting to the new food.
8. Once the dog/s have been eating 100% Millies for at least 4 days, you may need to adjust the feeding amount, this is done by simply monitoring the stools and adjusting the feeding amount accordingly, should the stools become small and hard, or overly firm in any way (underfeeding) increase the feeding amount , but should the stools become large & soft, or turning loose (overfeeding) then decrease the feeding amount until the stool becomes well formed, not overly firm, and leaves nothing behind when you pick it up. At this point the feeding amount is correct.
Also please remember:- the majority of dog treats on the market tend to be of poor quality and may contain ingredients such as gluten and other problematic ingredients so eliminate these from the daily diet first if your dog suffers from loose stools.
