What Should I Feed My Puppy?

So you have just made a wonderful decision, you have decided to welcome a puppy into your home. But how do you care for your new bundle of cute and cuddly joy? There are many things to consider and multiple decisions to be made. First up – food! What should you feed your puppy?

What Should I Feed My Puppy?

As you consider what type of food you should feed your new puppy, it is important to bear in mind the food they have been eating up to this point. When you collect your puppy ask what they are currently eating.  It’s important to keep them on this food for at least a week before you consider changing it. The most important thing to remember when feeding puppies is that their digestive systems are still developing – so they are prone to upset tummies. If you decide to switch your puppies food you should try an ultra-digestible feed, designed specifically for puppies. Changing your puppies food should be done gradually by mixing the old and new foods together.

How Often Should I Feed My Puppy?

You should feed your puppy 3 – 4 times a day so that their tummy doesn’t get overloaded. Divide the daily amount of food (the pack will tell you how much you should feed per day) into 3 – 4 portions and feed your puppy their meals at regular intervals. At 6 months, you can feed your pooch 2 – 3 times per day.
