Is Puppy Food Really Necessary…….. Or Not?
So, is puppy food really necessary? This question gets asked a lot by first time puppy parents. They want the best food for their new puppy and can you blame them?
So is it necessary? Well, I guess you could say the answer to this question is "not really" BUT it does depend on the quality of dog food you will be feeding your puppy. Is it an all life stages dog food? One that is designed for both a puppy and adult dogs?
One exception when it comes to puppy foods is large breed puppies. They do have special nutritional needs, so it's always a good idea to find a large breed puppy food designed just for them.
If your puppy is not a large breed and you choose an all life stages dog food, make sure it is high quality, has been AAFCO approved and has a protein content of at least 26%
And be sure and read the dog food ingredient list. before you buy a food. The more educated and informed you are about dog foods, the healthier your new puppy will be!
