Oven-Baked AvoDerm® Original Small Bites Formula with Beef Meal is not only slow-cooked and easy to digest but dogs love the taste. All our formulas provide healthy balanced nutrition for your dog. High quality ingredients ensure that you are providing the optimum nutrition your pet needs.

No Animal By-Products. No Corn. No Artificial Colors.

Oven-Baked AvoDerm® has vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant nutrients to help support your dog's immune function.

Oven-Baked AvoDerm® is formulated to be rich in high quality fats and oils with a balanced Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acid ratio. The right nutrients in the right proportions are indispensable to keeping your dog's skin healthy. Sometimes shortages or excesses of specific nutrients can lead to thin, rough coats. Avocado and avocado oil can help support the skin and coat from the inside out for the protection your pet needs.

Why Oven-Baking?
The oven-baking process takes a little longer than regularly prepared dog food, but it’s worth every extra minute because this slow-cooking process keeps the integrity of all our fine ingredients fully intact. Oven-Baked products are a great nutritional alternative for dogs with sensitive stomachs.

Available in 4.4 and 15 lb. bags.

Oven-Baked AvoDerm® Original Small Bites Formula with Beef Meal is slow-cooked to ensure your dog receives optimum nutrition from the high quality ingredients. Oven-Baked AvoDerm® is naturally formulated to be complete and balanced with added vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients for your puppies through adult dogs.

Start allowing puppies access to Oven-Baked AvoDerm® Original Small Bites Formula with Beef Meal about 3 weeks before weaning, the food can be moistened to help consumption. After weaning feed the puppy 3 to 4 times per day for the first 2 months, and then from 2 to 3 times per day until reaching adult size, and then 1 to 2 times per day. Expect to feed 1 1/2 to 2 times the adult feeding recommendation during the puppy's growing phase, adjust the daily amount fed so the puppy maintains a good body condition.

During pregnancy increase the feeding amount during the last 1/3 of pregnancy to 1 1/2 times the amount recommended as shown for the adult. Avoid excessive over feeding, maintaining a good body condition, while preparing for whelp and nursing.

A nursing female can expect to need 2 to 3 times as much food as recommended in the adult feeding guideline. Adjust the extra food given by the number of puppies and length of nursing. Try to maintain a good body condition, however with large numbers of puppies expect to have some loss in body fat for milk production.
