Congratulations on expecting a new litter. For pregnant and lactating dogs or cats, it is important they consume enough food for their own needs and to nourish their future offspring. The typical increase in consumption can range from 25% to 50% more than their usual level. Because their caloric requirements increase dramatically, you should consult the feeding guidelines for a pregnant/lactating pet. We recommend consulting your veterinarian for specific feeding guidelines for your pet.​
