Like people us doggies need Protein, Fat, Carbohydrates, Vitamins, Minerals and Water in the correct quantities to stay fit and healthy. The quantities of nutrients needed vary with each life stage.

Choosing the correct type of food for your dog’s size and life stage is the first step to providing the best nutrition so below is a guide to knowing which life stage your dog is in. Life stages vary with size since lifespans do. i.e The smaller the dog the longer the life span and the faster the rate of growth

10 months- 8 years – Adult
8+ Senior

MEDIUM BREED

Nutrition and feeding is a big area so will be breaking it up into a few smaller sections so it’s easy to follow but feel free to ask any questions in the meantime
