How to feed a puppy from 3 months

So your puppy has already begun to eat solid and his teeth are starting to come out.

His diet should attend to other circumstances besides age, such as the size of his breed.



Feed a large-sized puppy:

Large-sized puppies need slow growth to help prevent orthopedic problems, such as hip dysplasia. Whichever brand of food you choose, do not overvalue the levels of protein, fat and calories it contains since the development of the puppies of these breeds can be prolonged until 2 years of age. There is no hurry at this stage. The best is to adjust to the nutrients and the amount recommended by the manufacturer.


Feed a medium-sized puppy:

Medium-sized puppies have slightly higher metabolic rates than large-sized puppies. This means that a medium-sized puppy will reach its adult weight in about 12 months.

Medium-sized breeds also need a low-calorie diet because they are also prone to hip dysplasia. To ensure that your puppy is receiving optimal nutrition to protect and maintain health and well-being, include animal protein in his diet, as this will help your puppy create new body tissue.

In short, it is important to give a food according to its medium size so that his metabolism receives the right measure of nutrients.


Feed a small-sized puppy

Small-sized dogs eat more compared to those of large-size because the metabolism of small-sized is faster and they need a higher calorie intake.

Keep in mind that at the age of 10 months most of the small breed puppies will have completed their development.

Another special feature of puppies of small breeds to consider is the size of their mouths and stomachs. Therefore, when choosing a food for your puppy, make sure that your animal can chew the croquette without difficulty.
