The expert pet food franchise recently shared a blog post letting readers know some important facts about a puppy’s growth and development.

In the words of Trophy Pet Foods, “When you take on a puppy’s health and wellbeing, its nutrition is a huge part of your responsibility. Nutrition covers everything that contributes to your puppy’s growth and development, specifically her bones, teeth, healthy vision, coat, organs, joints, and muscles.” The pet food franchise then detailed the five most important things to know:

  • The “puppy stage” differs from breed to breed - Even after the rapid growth has ended, “many breeds continue to grow for up to two years”. As Trophy explained, “Larger breeds have a longer growth period and so should remain on specially formulated growth food for the entire time.”

  • There are six essential nutrients that your puppy needs - These nutrients are carbohydrates, proteins, fat, vitamins, minerals and water. The first five are all found “in good ‘complete’ puppy food” and water, separately provided by you, should always be fresh and always be available.

  • Feeding your puppy the right amount matters - “Most of us are not always fully accurate with feeding and can often be prompted to alter quantities if we notice our pet getting a little fatter or looking too slim. We don’t have this luxury with a pup as we don’t know what their end shape will be. To avoid any doubt, scales are your best friend – keep weighing and feeding in line with the recommended amounts.”

  • Treats should make up 10% or less of your puppy’s diet - In moderation, “Creating good habits with highly nutritional treats means [puppies] are less likely to beg for food or associate human food with their own. There is a mountain of treats to choose from so check the labels carefully, never feed rawhide and consider baking your own!”

  • DHA is vital for your puppy’s neurological and retinol function - DHA, or omega 3 essential fatty acid, “provides the good fats your puppy needs for brain and eye development [and] aids its central nervous system”. Plus, DHA can ease allergies.
