Each Kit is designed for one dog and will last approximately: 2 months for Large/Giant breeds, 3 months for Medium Breeds and 4 months for Small Breeds. Length of time a kit lasts depends on the amount used, frequency and number of dogs it's fed. Please discuss the program you are interested in using, with a veterinarian who is knowledgeable about canine nutrition, prior to implementing a program.
These feed program are not to be used in lieu of veterinarian advice, diagnosis or treatment.The Blackwatch Feed Programs are for individuals who have purchased puppies from Blackwatch and Owlwatch Kennels, and Blackwatch Nutritionals LLC and GreatDaneLady.com is not responsible for abuse of misuse of a feed program.
In Preparation For Using A Supplement Kit
Before you purchase one of the supplement kits, please go to the Articles page and do a word search on the specific problem that you are interested in, so you have the background information for that kit. For example, if you have an HOD puppy, find the Feed Program for HOD and read it before purchasing the products and understand why they are needed for your dog and how to use them.

* Breeders Wholesale Kits were developed
so breeders can purchase Puppy Kits before the puppies go into their
new homes. Since the kits will last a couple of months it gets the
new puppy owners in the habit of feeding the puppy the way you want
it done, as stated in your sales
contract. Minimum order is 3 kits.
Important Kit Info:
Each kit is designed for "one" pet with an approximate 2 - 4 months supply of supplements depending on the size of the dog. You can order on line at www.firstchoicenaturals.com or call in your order to 765-287-8288 . To purchase Breeders Kits wholesale OR wholesale case prices on supplements, need to call First Choice Naturals directly- as they can not be purchased online.
As an educator for 34 years, I feel it is important that you know why I use certain supplements and foods for my dogs, if you choose to try the same feeding protocols. Education is the key to developing the "wellness habit" for your pet. That said, you need to take the time to read my feed programs in total, depending on the kit you are purchasing.
You have two options for starting or reordering
It is very important to me that YOU know why each of these supplements are in the programs, so PLEASE take the time to print out and read and have on hand for a reference. An instruction sheet will come with each kit purchased from First Choice Naturals. Click on the links below to locate the feed program.
NOTE: In some of the Kits there will be a liquid joint support called Level 5000 Joint Supplement substituted for Liquid Health Level 5000 . This is equal in quality to Liquid Health Level 5000 that is listed in the feed programs. They are both excellent products and have used both in feed trials and they work.
Feeding Instructions - Read Before
I recommend using Precise and Precise Plus foods.
Transition to New Food
*so as not to disrupt the growth cycle and throw them into a HOD.Transition pet to a new diet using the 4 in 1 Probiotic or Eagle Transition Powder to prevent loose stools.Introduce all supplements 3-4 days apart to avoid loose stools & detoxifying too rapidly.
How To Mix The Dog Food and Supplements:
REMEMBER TO INTRODUCE EACH NEW SUPPLEMENT 2-3 DAYS APART
1 - Put kibble in a bowl
5 - Add Meat & Water & OxE-Drops-
(and any other liquid that might be in your program) In a one cup
measuring cup - add tepid temperature water and a tablespoon or 2
of Eagle Holistic canned meat - You want it moist like a gravy but
not sloppy and you don't want the kibble floating in water. Getting
your dog to eat food with water on it is very important, it helps
prevent over consumption of water and helps prevent bladder irritations
which leads to infections. Puppies are prone to this in particular
so it is important.
7 - Honest Kitchen Raw - this needs to be re-hydrated so add water to it ahead of time and let it soak up, or you can add a little to your water with canned Eagle and let it soak up for a few minutes. I prefer to mix ahead of time and put in a Glad container in the refrigerator then use a couple of spoonfuls to top dress the kibble.
Commercial foods need to be fed with moisture so dogs don't over consume water after a meal, and so the kibble does not pull moisture from the dogs system in order to break down properly. Use "tepid" temperature water, never hot or warm and never soak your food as it breaks down and destroys nutrients. Do not microwave, soak or use hot or very warm water on your kibble. It will destroy the integrity of the friendly yogurt type cultures in your 4 in 1 Probiotics and the fragile vitamins/minerals and amino acids on your high quality kibble.
Amount: Here is an AMOUNT TO FEED CHART for large/giant breed puppies - their calories really have to be regulated under 10 months of age. Print out chart for reference.
Treats: You can use fresh fruit, berries (they love them frozen)
- no grapes or raisins!! - for
treats and they won't add lots of calories to the diet. If you use
a holistic cookie/treat break it up into very small pieces so the
do not get too many calories extra a day. It is the act of reward
that is important, not the size of it.
Collars: Do not leave your dog unattended with a collar on, or send him out in the yard to play with another dog with their collars on - many dogs die from strangulation when their teeth get caught up in another dogs collar or the collar caught on a fence. Use a break away collar from Premier Pets if you want a collar on the dog in the house or yard.
