Giving your small breed puppy the best start in life
For both people and their pets, the best way to build a long, happy life is on a solid foundation of good health. And building that foundation is what those first months of life are all about. Small and toy breed puppies are on a mission to grow. It's their only mission and it's very important. They're forming building blocks that will set up their bodies to last a lifetime. And the food they eat largely determines whether they get off to a great start or face a higher risk of health problems down the road. Here are four key priorities when choosing your puppy's food:
- Puppies need nutrition that will meet the specific needs of a developing body, allowing it to grow healthy and strong at just the right speed - not too fast and not too slow
- Puppies need high quality protein to support optimal bone and muscle growth.
- Antioxidants are important for building a healthy immune system that small and toy breeds will need to support a long life expectancy
- The addition of natural DHA in your puppy's food can give an extra boost to brain and vision development and help develop a smarter, more trainable pet
All of the above are the primary focus of Science Diet® Puppy Small & Toy Breed Dog Food.
