What food do I feed my puppy?
Your puppy will need to be fed between 2 to 4 times daily, depending on age and breed. Fresh, clean water should be freely available to your puppy at all times.
We recommend a premium puppy food designed for your type of puppy. The following brands are excellent quality nutrition for your puppy:
- Hill’s Science Diet
- Royal Canin
- Advance (Australian made)
Your puppy can have both dry and canned food, all dry food or all canned food. The most important thing is to work out how much your puppy should have for its size and age per day.
If you have trouble with this, please contact us or visit the clinic for a chat. It is useful if you can bring in the food packet that you are using for accurate advice.
We recommend that your puppy gets fed a large part of its daily food in a treat toy, such as a Kong. This way, your puppy spends at least some of the time you are away entertaining itself by trying to get to its food.
Puppies do not need dairy in their diet. But if you are keen to offer some milk, there are dairy-free puppy alternatives available.
