This food is specifically indicated for pregnant and lactating dogs of a medium size breed, and their pups during weaning. The food will strengthen their immune systems and digests easily. Medium Starter for Mother and Babydog is nutrient dense and has higher energy levels, fit for a mother-to-be who needs to keep herself and her pups going. Take into account however, that mom cannot eat large portions of food at once – there’s simply not enough space left in her body. Starter Mother and Babydog food is rather porridgy and can be given in smaller, more frequent portions to adapt to her feeding needs – which is 2 to 3 times the amount of her usual energy intake.
Puppies can be fed semi-solid food from three to four weeks of age. Puppies are now developed enough to need less maternal milk and take in more and more solid food. Puppies will imitate their mother’s feeding behaviour. At the same time, the mother dog’s energy requirements will decrease, meaning she needs less food.
The food’s soft consistency is also what makes it suitable for weaning pups. Apart from the elements found in the formula that is also found in their mother’s milk, the food is a perfect transition food from milk to solids.
For weaning puppies aged 4 to 8 weeks.
