How Long Should I Use Puppy Starter Packs For?
Generally, vets recommend that you use puppy food for one year, before switching to standard adult dog food. There is, however, no rule with raw feeding as puppies gain the additional nutrients through being fed 4 to 6% of their current ideal bodyweight, compared to adults at 2 to 3%.
In the first year of a dog's life, a significant amount of growth and development takes place, which means that diet (and correct portions) is critical. If animals don't get the nutrients their bodies need in the early stages of their lives, this can lead to potential health problems.
We suggest transitioning up to Adult Formula's at 6 months, latest. Ideally you can introduce the other formulas sooner for a wider variety of tastes, textures and nutrient profiles. The only thing to remember is growing puppies still need the higher quantity of food.
How much should I feed my puppy?
Puppies usually need to be fed 3 times a day up to 6 months, so it's a good idea to separate the allocated days food into smaller, equal portions. As they get older and begin to grow, the number of feeding times per day can be reduced to two and the amount of food they eat in each sitting can be steadily increased. It is recommended to do this slowly as large portion sizes can potentially lead to excess weight gain..
When your puppy is fully grown you will then need to gradually reduce the amount fed to 2 to 3% of their current ideal bodyweight.
