How much should I feed my dog?
For an average adult dog – 200-300g per 10kg per day.
For puppies – 400-600g per 10kg per day.
Some dogs will have higher energy requirements (e.g. working dogs) and will need to be fed more, and some dogs (e.g. overweight dogs or low energy dogs) will need to be fed less – this is a general feeding guide. The marked increments on the packaging are only a guide and may vary during the production process.
To ensure an accurate feeding amount we encourage you to weigh the portion prior to feeding.

What is an elimination diet?
An elimination diet is where a veterinary professional places a dog, or cat, on a ‘novel’ single protein diet such as Sk-D200 Crocodile & Tapioca for a period of 8-10 weeks (or as directed), if the dogs indications have improved, the veterinarian will challenge the dog or cat with another protein to see if a reaction occurs (allergic reaction). After this time, the dog should only have proteins that they do not react to.
My dog is losing weight on an elimination diet, what should I do?
If your dog is losing weight on an elimination diet you may need to increase the amount being fed. We suggest speaking with your veterinarian to confirm the amounts.
Are SPD™ rolls suitable for cats?
Yes, as the rolls are fortified with taurine and contain a high percentage of meat (about 80%) they are suitable for cats to eat (with the exception of Chicken and Brown Rice, which contains crushed bone not suited to felines; and the Pea and Hemp roll which is non-meat based). SPD™ rolls can be combined with a cat’s dry food as a ‘topper’ to an already complete and balanced meal, unless otherwise directed by a veterinarian.
