Wellness Dry Dog Recipes
Whether you are looking for a food for your new puppy or for your long time companion it is important to understand the benefits of feeding your dog the best recipe to meet his/her needs. Wellness Natural Food for Pets offers a wide variety of foods to meet the needs of different life-stages and special needs dogs.
Dietary Needs of Small Breed Dogs
Many small breed dogs are very active and energetic. Due to higher metabolisms they require more calories per pound than larger breed puppies. They also require adequate levels of fiber to help regulate the absorption of glucose (sugars) from the digestive tract. (See chart below)
Small breed dogs are known to be more vulnerable to a condition known as hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Proper levels of fiber in the diet ensure a slow and steady absorption of glucose rather than all at once. The risk may increase if a puppy does not eat frequently during the day.
Wellness Small Breed Dry Dog Recipes
Wellness Super5Mix Small Breed Just For Puppy, Adult Health & Healthy Weight recipes along with Wellness CORE Grain-Free Small Breed Recipe are formulated to meet the unique dietary needs of small breed dogs.
Protein, fat and carbohydrates are balanced to meet the high energy needs of small breed dogs. Omega fatty acids are added to maintain healthy skin and coat and glucosamine and chondroitin in adult recipes for hip and joint health. The puppy recipe includes DHA for brain and eye development. Due to small breed dogs having smaller mouths, all Wellness Small Breed recipes are a smaller kibble size for easier consumption and digestion.
Transitioning to Wellness Dog Food
It is important to slowly transition your dog from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to the new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness by day 7.
