Let’s Talk Nutrition this National Puppy Day

With all these viral ‘holidays’ popping up, it’s only natural puppies would get their own because, let’s face it, there are few things cuter than a soft, wrinkly, curious little puppy. And while we know everything we love about them on the outside, it’s our responsibility as owners to keep them healthy on the inside. Much like babies, puppies require different nutrients for their development, so here are a few things to look for when feeding your baby…dog, that is.

DHA – DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, is an omega-3 fatty acid that is a primary component of the brain and its functionality, making it a key ingredient for brain development in young dogs.
Calcium – Calcium aids in strong bone development, giving puppies a strong nutritional foundation.
Antioxidants – Antioxidants counteract the damaging effects of oxidation in body tissue, which can release cancer-causing free radicals, which helps build a strong immune system.
Wholesome ingredients – Just like a human diet, the simpler the better; pay close attention to the ingredients on the side of the bag, the more familiar they are to you, the better they are for your pet. Read more about our ingredient benefits here.
