The Benefits of Nutriment's Puppy Starter Packs
Along with regular exercise, vaccinations, grooming and bedding, a good quality source of food is essential for young pups. Rather than buying lots of separate types of food, choosing a well-balanced, nutrient rich option such as Nutriment's puppy starter pack means you're able to feed your pup quality food without constantly having to go shopping. For breeders, filling up multiple food bowls is easy with the handy 500 gram packs and each portion contains enough moisture, protein and fat to give each puppy enough nutrients to stay healthy and active.
Custom made for young dogs
After the initial weaning period is over, breeders often use a paste to get their young dogs used to eating solid food. This is when they feed a weaning paste (up to 6 weeks). Our puppy starter packs are designed for the next stage in the dog's development and each portion of food is enriched with vitamins to help fuel their growing bodies. As any puppy breeder will tell you, young dogs are often very active and use a great deal of energy, so it's important to make sure they have enough sustenance. With Nutriment's raw food products, there's nothing artificial included, so you can have the peace of mind that comes with giving your dogs the best available diet.
How Long Should I Use Puppy Starter Packs For?
Generally, vets recommend that you use puppy food for one year, before switching to standard adult dog food. There is, however, no rule with raw feeding as puppies gain the additional nutrients through being fed 4 to 6% of their current ideal bodyweight, compared to adults at 2 to 3%. In the first year of a dog's life, a significant amount of growth and development takes place, which means that diet (and correct portions) is critical. If animals don't get the nutrients their bodies need in the early stages of their lives, this can lead to potential health problems. We suggest transitioning up to our 'adult' formulas at 6 months, latest. Ideally you can introduce the other formulas sooner for a wider variety of tastes, textures and nutrient profiles. The only thing to remember is growing puppies still need the higher quantity of food.
How much should I feed my puppy?
Puppies usually need to be fed 3 times a day up to 6 months, so it's a good idea to separate the allocated days food in to smaller, equal portions. As they get older and begin to grow, the number of feeding times per day can be reduced to two and the amount of food they eat in each sitting can be steadily increased. It is recommended to do this slowly as large portion sizes can potentially lead to excess weight gain. When your puppy is fully grown you will then need to gradually reduce the amount fed to 2 to 3% of their current ideal bodyweight.

Minimum guidelines by F.E.D.I.A.F. Adult Late Growth 1/1
Puppies should be fed 5-6% of their growing body weight and Adult dogs should be fed 2-3% of their ideal body weight.
This is only a guide. Some dogs may need, more or less to maintain proper weight. We recommend feeding any dogs over the age of 6 months twice a day. Depending on the breed of your puppy depends on the age they can move to adult formula, larger puppies can move over sooner, but still feed puppy rations until they are fully grown.
With puppies between 3 – 6 weeks old, you can start on our weaning paste. Just like with babies, you want to introduce plain and simple foods first. Our weaning paste is ground to a paste that will have fine bits of bone, which is great for puppies' teeth and easy for them to digest. The weaning paste is only intended as a supplement to the mother's milk. They should be allowed to suckle first then offer the weaning paste.
After 6 weeks, you can start introducing our puppy food which is still very fine and a simple, bland food. By the time they reach 4 months, you can start introducing the normal formulas.
