It is important to feed your dog at the proper intervals using the right amount of nutrients. Your puppy will need the right amount of nutrients to grow and become a healthy adult. Regular monitoring of your physical condition and adjusting the amount of feed according to your dog’s growth are extremely important for your dog’s health.
To help protect your dog’s health, we recommend the following simple steps to feed your dog:

You and your veterinarian
Your veterinarian is the best source of information about your dog’s health and well-being. A pet’s reaching the ideal weight and maintaining that weight not only reduces some health risks, but also allows your dog to live a more energetic, longer and healthier life. Therefore, regularly seek advice from your veterinarian about your dog’s weight.
Ask your veterinarian which of the following three methods is the best feeding method for your dog:
Unlimited Nutrition: There is always food for your dog’s consumption.
Limited-Time Nutrition: Only a limited period of time is available for your dog’s consumption.
Meal Style Nutrition: A moderate amount of food is available for your dog’s consumption every day at specified meal times.
Water: You should always provide your dog with enough drinking water. Failure to find water to drink for a long time will harm your dog’s health.
Homemade food & award biscuits: It may be tempting to give them a piece of your food as well, but feeding in this way does not give your dog a proper nutritional balance. Since giving too much can lead to weight gain or unbalanced diet, you should avoid giving home food.
The next step: When your dog reaches adulthood, the nutritional requirements will also be different. It will need to switch to an adult food that will provide special nutrients, vitamins and minerals in a correct, balanced way for age and race size. The age stage range should be adjusted to maximize your dog’s health, regardless of race or lifestyle.
