Puppies may be introduced to our Weaning food from around 3 to 4 weeks of age. After they have fed from Mum, try tempting them with a little paste, gradually increasing the amount over a week to ten days, when you may wish to switch to our Puppy food.
Once the puppy has been weaned, start by feeding 4-6% of the puppy's ideal body weight per day, ideally spread over three or four meals per day. Once the puppy reaches around 5-6 months of age, you may reduce the number of feeds to twice per day, and gradually reduce the amount to be fed to around 2-3% by the time the dog has achieved full size.
Remember - smaller breed dogs mature much faster than bigger breeds. We therefore suggest that a terrier should be fed the adult quantity of Nutriment by the time they reach around 10 months of age - whereas a Great Dane puppy will still require 4-6% for the first 18 months.
