While your playful pup is growing, it is essential that it receives specially formulated food.
Puppies need more calories and more food than an equivalent weight adult dog. The growing puppy needs a higher plane of nutrition to fuel his rapid development and to provide the boundless energy, which is so typical of puppies.
Additionally, certain nutrients, such as calcium and phosphorus, need to be closely controlled to ensure good skeletal development, particularly in large and giant breeds of dogs. Its one of the reasons puppy nutrition is quite a complex issue.
Fortunately, feeding your puppy need not be as complicated as it sounds. Puppy and growth foods, which are specially formulated for their needs take all the guess-work out of rearing a healthy puppy and provide a balanced and concentrated diet which your pup will enjoy and thrive on.
