DIETARY ADVICE

7-8 AM                   2/3 Cup Royal Canin (Maxi Junior Formula).  1Tbls of Champ Puppy (this product of food is available at your                                  supermarket).

12-1pm                   As per breakfast meal but you can substitute Champ Puppy for canned fish eg. sardines or similar.

5-6pm                     Same as breakfast but you can substitute Champ Puppy  for raw mince or Butch wag dog roll or boiled

                               poached  or scrambled egg.

9-10pm                   Same as the morning meal, but by the time your puppy is 10 weeks old, you can replace this meal with a Tux                                 biscuit or a slice of whole meal bread.

 

 

By the time your puppy is 6 months old he will only need two meals a day and then one meal from about 12 months onwards.

When your puppy is about 3-4 months old you can if you wish, start feeding  raw chicken necks, they love these and they are full of calcium.

All puppies grow at a different rate and these feeding notes are given as a guide only. Gradually increase puppy’s meal approx 20gms per week.

Keep an eye on your puppy’s weight and check with the instructions on the bag to ensure you are feeding the correct amount.
