Product Description

Small breed puppies have higher metabolisms, sensitive skin, developing teeth and are often finicky eaters. They require the right energy and nutrients from their food in order to support rapid growth. Because finding the right food is crucial to their overall development, we’ve formulated a natural diet for their specific needs. Made with real, farm-raised chicken, this healthy, natural small breed puppy food contains targeted levels of protein, DHA, minerals, and the right balance of calcium and phosphorus. Its unique kibble shape is designed to reduce tartar and plaque buildup. Plus, our premium puppy food never uses artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and is packed with a taste your small breed puppy will enjoy.

Feeding Guidelines

These are the recommended feeding ranges for puppies. These guidelines should be adjusted as needed to obtain optimum weight.

Puppies: From 3 to 5 weeks of age, moisten food and feed frequently. From 6 weeks of age, feed the suggested amount in three meals per day until 6 months of age, then twice daily until 12 months.

Pregnant/Lactating Bitches: During pregnancy, offer 50% more and during lactation offer at least two to three times more than the amount shown for puppies 29 to 52 weeks of age.

Keep fresh drinking water available at all times, provide plenty of exercise and see your veterinarian regularly. Serve dry or lightly moistened. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing in a cool, dry location.
