Whether you have a new puppy or the dog you've loved for years, caring for your dog properly ensures many happy years together. As you care for your dog, even the little things - perfectly selected food, exercise and love - can make a big difference. We want to be a part of your dog's happy, healthy life, so we're here to share information on proper nutrition, fitness and special needs.
Knowing the age of your dog is important in choosing their nutrition. If you have a dog and aren't sure of his exact age, your veterinarian can help estimate that for you.
Adult dogs include dogs of the following ages:
- 1 to 7 years old for small and medium breeds
- 1 to 5 years old for large breeds and
- 1 to 4 years old for giant breeds
As you care for your dog, it's important to remember that his needs change as he grows. Caring for your dog according to his lifestage means you're giving him the best care.
