It’s vital that you follow instructions for feeding Puppies.

They grow very quickly and need more food (and more nutrients) during the first 12 months.

Pups 2-3 months will typically need twice the daily adult requirement (giants up to 4 times as much).  At 3-4 months they need three times as much and by 4-6 months, twice as much as an adult dog of the same weight.  From 7-15 months their needs will slowly reduce toward the typical adult requirement.

The DAILY PORTION needs to be spread into frequent small meals - typically 4 meals for very young pups, reducing to two daily meals by 6 months of age.

See our guide for typical feeding amounts.
