Your puppy’s first food

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

During a puppy’s first year, it’s very important that his food contain lots of fat and nutrients. Always choose a high quality food that says “puppy formula.  These foods contain important nutrients and fats that your puppy needs.  High quality foods are rich in carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, which many generic brands are lacking. If you’re debating whether to feed him wet or dry food, I would choose a moist, semi wet food at first. These foods contain the same important nutrients as the dry foods.  Treats are also important. They contain extra vitamins and nutrients for your puppy. Treats can also make his teeth and gums healthier and stronger. Give treats sparingly. They should not be the main portion of your puppy’s diet.

Remember, your pets count!
