Large Breed Puppy Food
Teepee Large Breed Puppy Food is designed to support the many needs of your large breed puppy as it grows. Compared to an average sized puppy, large breed puppies have different nutritional requirements at different stages of their puppy development. A large breed puppy has a longer growth curve. This means they grow over a longer period. For example, a Jack Russell Terrier (a small breed of dog) would be fully grown by the time it reaches a year old. However a Labrador or German Shepherd would still be growing. In addition, these bigger dogs would have joints and bones that develop and strengthen over a longer period.
Depending on the breed, large breed puppy food can normally be fed up to about 15 months old. The larger the breed, the longer they will stay on large puppy food. For instance a Great Dane could stay on puppy food up to 2 years old. If you think your dog is at an age where it now needs adult food, take a look at our Teepee Adult Large Breed food: https://www.thepetexperience.co.uk/product/large-breed-dog-food/
Another key point about large breed puppies is they tend to have big mouths! Consequently, they can ingest big mouthfuls of food and swallow without chewing. This can increase the chances of bloat occurring which can be potentially fatal. However, our large breed puppy food has a large biscuit size: (+/- 1mm) 13mm x 12mm. This encourages proper chewing before swallowing. Meeting these different nutritional and physical requirements is part of what Teepee large breed puppy food is for.
Salmon is naturally rich in Omega 3 essential fatty acids. Omega oils have anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore they can be very beneficial for addressing skin and coat problems. In addition, Omega 3 is helpful for supporting developing joints as well as cognitive and visual development. Moreover, Salmon is an easily digestible forms of protein making it a naturally hypoallergenic ingredients.
Sweet Potato is used as an alternative to grain. Firstly, it is an excellent complex carbohydrate and it is also high in B Vitamins. Similarly, Asparagus is rich in vitamins A, C and K as well as folic acid. Consequently these all help contribute to general health & well-being as your puppy grows. Likewise, added prebiotics (FOS & MOS) can aid digestion by helping to promote the growth of ‘good’ digestive bacteria.
In short, Teepee large breed puppy food is a great way to feed a cost-effective, hypoallergenic diet. High quality ingredients and superior digestibility. As a result, feeding quantities are lower and there is less waste. In other words, less poo!
All bags of Teepee large breed puppy food come with suggested feeding quantities. However, these are purely a guide. For instance, the following factors can have an affect on feeding quantities:
- individual breed.
- metabolic rate.
- level of activity.
- age of the dog.
- sex of the dog.
- ambient living temperature etc.
As a result, adjust feeding quantities as necessary. No matter how good a food is, too much is no good! For example, over feeding will usually lead to poor digestion and soft poo. Not to mention weight gain. Similarly, too little will affect their ability to maintain a healthy bodyweight. Added L-Carnitine promotes the burning of fat for energy during growth to help weight management.
One final point. Your puppy’s daily feeding portions will need to be reduced as your puppy grows through adolescence. It is a bit counter intuitive…. Your puppy is getting bigger and heavier but yet you will need to start cutting back on their daily feeding amounts at a certain point. This is as a result of their growth curve starting to level. In other words, their rate of growth is slowing down and they are moving closer to being fully grown. For example, for an average large breed puppy this would be anytime from about 8 months onwards.
