Puppy nutrition

Proper nutrition is another part of helping your puppy get the best start in life. Puppies need a balanced diet that includes all the essential nutrients for growth and development. Proper nutrition is vital for puppies because it helps them to grow strong bones and muscles and provides the energy necessary for play and learning.

There are many premium-grade commercial foods that meet the exact nutritional requirements of growing puppies. Although brands vary in quality, premium brands generally provide higher- quality ingredients. Therefore, we recommend you feed your puppy premium-grade puppy food.

Remember: Providing the proper nutrition for a new puppy will ensure they get the healthy start they need to grow into a happy and healthy adult dog. Talk to our veterinary team for advice on the appropriate nutrition for your puppy.


Maintaining a healthy weight for your puppy is extremely important for their overall health and well-being. Keeping your puppy at their ideal weight helps to keep their bones, joints, and muscles strong and healthy. In addition, keeping your puppy at their ideal weight can help reduce the risk of serious health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and types of cancer.

Monitor your puppy’s weight regularly and work with your veterinary healthcare team to make adjustments to ensure they stay at their ideal weight. By doing so, you can help your puppy stay healthy and happy.

Remember: A trip to the vet for a weight check can be a perfect opportunity to keep track of your puppy’s weight whilst also ensuring a positive vet experience with lots of treats and cuddles from our team.
