Category: Puppy Food

Feeding growing puppies appropriately for their proper development is essential.  While many adult dog foods are formulated to be adequate for puppies, I think we can all agree that adequate isn’t good enough.  Furthermore, small and large breed puppies have more specific requirements.  For example, large breed puppy food is lower is calories and fat to prevent dogs from growing too fast and causing orthopedic problems later in life.  Small breed puppy food is higher in protein and calories than regular puppy food because those little guys go from babies to adults in 8 months!

You won’t go wrong feeding puppy food to your small or large breed puppy.  But you can do better by choosing a diet specially formulated to meet their unique needs.  Medium size dogs will do great on regular puppy food because it was basically designed for them.
