Life stages of dogs
Feeding through the stages
Gradually introduce your puppy to kibble over a week by mashing a little down with hot water to create a paste and cooling to room temperature. Gradually add less water until your puppy is eating the dry kibbles.
Always feed the recommended amount on pack. Over-feeding puppies may encourage an acceleration in growth, which can cause skeletal abnormalities where joints are not formed correctly. For example, osteoarthritis and hip dysplasia.
We know that puppies love food! So make sure you keep an eye on how fast they consume it! When dogs eat too fast, they can gulp down excessive amounts of air, causing expansion of the stomach and increasing the chances of bloat.
Follow the on-pack guidelines to ensure you are feeding the correct amount for the weight of your puppy. There should always be plenty of fresh clean water available for them to drink.
A complete puppy food should have:
• Smaller kibble for puppy-sized mouths and to make eating and digestion easier.
• A high level of digestible proteins (around 32%) to assist growth and muscle development.
• Extra calcium for strong bones and teeth.
