In addition to being exceedingly adorable, the puppy stage is essential for their growth. Every part of them is expanding from their muscles and paws to their intellect and social abilities.
Throughout the early stages of life, your growing puppy requires intensive, intentional nutrition, and their dietary requirements differ significantly from those of adult dogs. Young pups need extra calories that are simple to digest and absorb. Moreover, they require higher doses of calcium for strong bones and teeth, protein for muscle growth, and fat overall (including the critical Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids).
Adolescent (young adult) dogs can procreate but are still growing and developing their physical prowess. These young dogs, who are frequently active, still require a high-calorie diet and an appropriate ratio of protein, fat, and vitamins that encourage growth.
