When compared to the same brand's adult dog food, puppy food often has more protein and is fortified with vitamins, minerals, and lipids necessary for development.
It's more likely to include the supplemental nutrients a puppy requires until it reaches full maturity.
Puppy recipes designed for large breeds slow down their growth so that their joints and skeletons can mature properly.
Puppies require a lot of food, but they shouldn't overeat. When you look down at them, you should be able to see their waist and feel their ribs.
If your puppy has a very large or small appetite, you may need to increase or decrease the recommended feeding amount on the dog food bag.
Your puppy is usually eating three or four times a day by the time he or she is 8 to 12 weeks old.
The protein, fat, and calorie content of your diet, whichever one you pick, should not be overemphasized.
