How Long Should You Feed A Puppy PUPPY FOOD?

Wednesday, October 30, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

PUPPIES EATINGA puppy needs a higher level of nutrients than what’s available in regular dog food.  Because of these special needs, your puppy should be on a high quality puppy food for the first year and up to 18 months for the giant breeds. Most dog food manufacturers offer a special formula for puppies that is higher in protein. (Protein should be between 28 and 30%)  and enriched with the fat soluble and water soluble vitamins, minerals, fats, and other essentials for your growing puppy needs.  Always check with your vet for the best type of food and check the back of the bag for the proper quantity. Remove uneaten food after about 15 or 20 minutes and make sure that you feed your pup at least three times a day if he’s under six months, two times from six to twelve months and then once after a year.
