FEEDING YOUR PUPPY - 0 TO 12 MONTHS

Your puppy’s diet is essential to help support their growth and development and build a healthy immune system. Here you’ll fnd our top tips on feeding your puppy - their needs, choosing the right food and giving your little bundle of fun all the nutrients they need to grow into a healthy, happy dog.

“EVERY DOG NEEDS A COMPLETE AND BALANCED DAILY DIET, FULL OF GOODNESS AND WHOLESOME INGREDIENTS”

PUPPIES GROW QUICKLY

Puppies grow quickly in the frst few months, so puppyhood is the most nutritionally demanding time in their life.

As a general rule a puppy’s nutritional needs can be divided into two main phases - the fast growth rate of the young puppy, followed at about fve months of age by the slightly slower rate of the adolescent.

Large and giant breed dogs have a slightly diferent growth pattern, reaching their Mature body size slightly later.

YOUR PUPPY’S NEEDS

Whatever their breed, because they are growing so fast, puppies have a higher requirement for protein, energy and calcium than an adult. In fact, from birth until they reach 50% of their adult weight, your puppy will have around double the daily energy requirements of an adult.

Along with their exercise, diet will have the greatest efect on your puppy’s bones and joints, and hence their size, shape, strength and ftness as an adult.

Young puppies need to be fed a diet that has been specially formulated for growth, so it’s important to choose a diet that is labeled as being ‘for puppies’.

All our puppy food here at Lily’s Kitchen have been developed specially to take account of your puppy’s development, and provide the best nutrition for them in a delicious way.

MAKE ANY CHANGES GRADUALLY

It’s a good idea to stick with the same food that your puppy arrived with, (the same that they had at the breeder), for at least the frst few weeks before gradually changing them onto a diet of your choice. This will lead to fewer tummy upsets!

Always make any dietary changes gradually. Sudden changes to the diet can cause tummy upsets. So, if you are either changing to a diferent recipe or changing to a new food, do so gradually over 4-5 days.
