Feeding Your New Puppy – Canine Nutrition

Diet is the bricks and mortar of health. This applies to dogs as well as humans. Putting a little thought into what you feed your dog can pay big dividends with their improved health over their lifetime. However, choosing which puppy food is the most beneficial isn’t always easy.

Feeding your new puppy properly is one of the most important things you can do to make sure your puppy grows into a healthy adult dog. Choosing the right puppy food is one of the first things to consider, as pups have nutritional needs that are different than those of adult dogs. Choosing a food which is formulated for growth is necessary.

FourFriends Super Premium Gluten Free ‘Puppy’ provides nutrients in perfect balance for normal growth and development. The 42% chicken meat gives a high protein content for the correct development of their muscles. It also contains Aloe Vera as standard which is well known for supporting the immune system and is excellent for digestion. Salmon oil is added to the recipe which contributes to the intake of healthy omega fatty acids. Fatty acids are important for the brain, sight and central nervous system as your puppy is growing.

In our high protein Puppy food, 75% of the total protein comes from animal origin. FourFriends puppy food is also wheat gluten free.   

Your new puppy should eat three to four times daily. Use the feeding guidelines on the food label as a starting point to determine how much to feed your puppy. Split up the daily portion into three or four equal parts and feed each portion as spate meals. The feeding guidelines provide a starting point but you’ll need to monitor your dog’s particular needs and adjust accordingly.

Don't be tempted to overfeed your puppy as too much could either upset their tummy or put pressure on their frame if they gain too much weight in a short period of time. Neither of these are good for your puppy’s health, so take care when planning their meals.
