Adorable, fluffy, furry and of course hungry all the time! Can you blame it? No way! It is the growing stages which to be blamed and not your cute pup. Like the human babies, puppies too grow rapidly. The growth in regard to their bones, muscles, joints, internal organs and immune system; depends on proper nutrition.
Compared to fully grownup ones, the growing ones show omnivorous feeding trait. Thus, it is natural that their diet needs to be prepared with right amount of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and water to make it a complete and balanced food.
One has to pay attention to the fact that the amount of food a puppy needs varies during growth. It also depends on the pup’s breed, age, the level of activities, gender, environment and metabolism too.
At WoofYums, puppy food is planned particularly meeting the nutritional needs of young and still growing ones. The composition is quite different. It has almost twice the daily nutritional requirements compared to what a mature dog’s food demands. For instance puppy food contains about 30 percent protein, as well as the vitamins and minerals that are needed for a puppy to be healthy and to help in building a strong body.
Pet food is divided into three types: moist, semi-moist, and dry kibble. The perfect pick for your pup is dry type for its higher meat protein. For puppies younger than eight weeks, one needs to moisten dry food until it feels spongy. Moist puppy food is also easy to digest. However, as it is composed of 75 percent water, so it contains fewer nutrients. The best option is usually to feed your puppy a combined diet of dry kibble with moist ones. The diet chart at WoofYums comes handy as a guide and gives important tips like pups should be fed solid food starting at about four weeks. Even if they are on mother’s milk, they don’t get all the essential calories from it. Most puppies are weaned by six weeks. They should eat three times a day from weaning through four to six months. After six months, twice-a-day feedings are fine.
The categorization of small and large breed in the WoofYums feeding guide; helps in preparing the diet plan.
