Feeding your puppy

Good nutrition is always important for the health and well-being of your dog. But, as your vet will tell you, it is never more important than during the puppy period.

Starting your dog’s life with the best puppy food available, goes a long way towards insuring your dog’s future health.

As they grow, millions of nerve pathways are being formed and extended and bones and muscles grow and strengthen. Puppies grow quickly and so require a special diet to help their physical development. A specially formulated growth food is recommended containing carefully balanced levels of amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.

Which puppy food should I buy for my breed?

Of course, not all puppies develop at the same rate. A Great Dane takes over 12 months to reach full maturity whilst a terrier will get there in around 6 months. It is also worth considering the needs for each breed. For example, large and giant breeds have very special needs when it comes to the development of bones - a problem that can be responsive to nutrition.
