Q. What kind of food is recommended for a puppy Labrador and how often should I feed him?
ONLY NATURAL PET TEAM
A. Puppy food is designed specifically for the nutritional needs of young and still growing dogs, with twice the daily nutritional requirements that a mature dog needs.
Puppies are growing and developing rapidly -- in their bones, muscles, joints, internal organs and immune system, to name but a few of the developmental needs that are being met by nutrition. A well balanced puppy food contains those nutrients that a puppy specifically need for this purpose, nutrients that are not necessary once the puppy has finished growing into a dog and that are not added to adult formula dog foods. For example, to build a strong body, puppy food contains about 30 percent protein, as well as the vitamins and minerals that are needed for a puppy to be healthy.
A. If possible, feed three times per day. If that can't go along with your schedule, do two feedings per day.
I suggest you look for a puppy food with meat as the main ingredient. You can tell the main ingredient by looking at the label of the bag of food and reading the first ingredient listed. If it's corn, I would recommend looking for a different food. I would also avoid chicken as the main ingredient.
The bag of food will list how much to feed in one day. Remember to read this information carefully and divide the total per day among your meal times.
