Read the food labels on puppy pet food

Nutrition is very important to a new puppy and your puppy trusts you to make good choices.

Bones and muscles are still growing while your puppy is growing and when he or she is an adult the puppy's nutritional needs will alter in order to keep strong and in good health.

Tinned dog pet food is full of these ingredients but can be a minefield. The first ingredient is the main ingredient and you will be able to keep a check on how much your puppy is eating.

Keep an eye on the lower ingredients on the label to make sure there is a balance of food your puppy is eating.

Dry food can be eaten at one meal and tinned food at another. However, do not use a mixer unless mixing with wet food.

A variety of food is good nutrition for your puppy and can be cost effective if you keep an eye on the amount of proteins, carbohydrates and fats consumed daily.
