Adult Dogs: Food requirements will vary depending on breed, environment, temperament and stress factors. Working or show dogs will require additional amounts of food depending on their degree of activity or stress. Food intake should be adjusted to maintain optimum body condition.

Pregnancy And Nursing: Apex provides the extra nutrition needed for reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female’s good body condition. Food intake may increase up to four times the normal consumption rate.

Puppies: Puppies may begin eating Apex at about four weeks of age. Feed puppies all the moistened (with warm water, not hot) food they will consume three times a day until 6 months of age, then twice a day until 9 months of age. When feeding dry, Apex may be kept before the puppies at all times. The amount fed should be sufficient to maintain steady, optimal growth and weight, but not so much as to stimulate excessive growth and/or weight gain at an early age.


Apex 22-12 Wholesome Basics Dog Food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for ALL Life Stages, except for growth of large size dogs (70lbs. or more as an adult).
