In her last trimester and when nursing, your dog may need up to three times her normal amount of energy. She also needs extra nutrients to nourish her fast growing puppies.
A mother dog needs extra high quality, nutritious dog food. This needs to be rich in energy and with a balanced nutrient content. This ensures that she has enough nourishment for both the puppies and herself.
For pregnant or nursing dogs of large and giant breeds, we recommend Puppy Medium Breed to ensure that the dog gets enough energy and calcium.
Puppies from breeds with an adult weight over 25 kg need Puppy Large & Giant Breed. The reason for this is simply that this product is designed to prevent the puppies from growing too fast.
With our Puppy food weaning is simple. Because your nursing dog is fed with puppy food, the puppies can simply copy their mother when they are ready to start eating food. It’s a natural step for them, and one that will ensure that everyone receives the extra nutrients that they need.
If your dog has a health condition when pregnant or nursing, another food might be better suited to meet its individual needs:
Just ask your vet or vet nurse and they will guide you to the right food for your dog and the correct amount to feed.
