Understanding your puppy’s nutritional needs
Puppy-specific dietary demands
Every pet owner wants to give their beloved dog the best chance at optimal growth. To do so, we must grasp the unique nutritional requirements that set puppies apart from their adult counterparts. When it comes to choosing the ideal diet for your growing pup, four nutritional cornerstones come into play: protein, fat, calcium, and digestible carbohydrates.
Be careful, though! Puppies require a robust dose of all nutrients, but too much of a good thing can spell trouble. For small to medium breeds, excess energy can pave the path to obesity, while large and giant breeds might grapple with abnormal skeletal development.
So, whether you’re giving your dog fresh food or yummy treats, make sure to pay attention to the nutritional information of your dog’s chow and consult your veterinarian about your pet’s specific diet.
Your assurance of balanced nourishment
In your quest for puppy food brands, the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) serves as a guiding light. AAFCO sets rigorous nutrient standards for pet food, ensuring a complete and balanced diet. Your puppy’s well-being hinges on selecting food that meets AAFCO’s nutrient guidelines or has undergone feeding trials adhering to AAFCO’s meticulous standards.
The National Research Council (NRC) has also released the Nutrient Requirements of Dogs and Cats, a textbook with the recommended dietary guidelines for pets.
As an AAFCO and NRC compliant brand, Frontier Pets assures pet owners that their dogs are in good hands. By selecting our puppy growth food options, you can be confident that your pet is getting a balanced pup diet that ticks all the boxes.
