Best dog food for puppies
One of the first questions asked by the owner of a puppy - "What is the best dog food for puppies?". This is a question that is difficult to answered as the digestive system of canines at any age is extremely sensitive, and even more so in young puppies.
In this crucial period of growth, there are some very important things happening. So, these are:
- The growth of bones, joints, muscles and internal organs;
- Cognitive development and brain growth;
- The development of the immune system.
To choose the best food for your puppy, you should be able to make informed decisions. This requires you need to know the different types of food available and the pros and cons thereof.
Here are the four main types of food the puppies are as follows:
- Dry food;
- semi-moist food;
- tinned food;
- homemade puppy food.
It is important to note that a puppy needs a stable diet, so try not to chop and change the foods, and if you do decide to switch to a new type of food, or even a new brand, do so gradually in order to give the small canine's digestive system a chance to adapt to the new food.
