Weaning Paste - 3 weeks to 6 weeks
Nutriment’s weaning paste is our raw dog food solution for weaning puppies. Made from one ingredient - 100% human-grade quality raw chicken - it is ideal for gently introducing young puppies to solid food.
Nutriment’s weaning made is made from one simple ingredient – chicken. Raw, high-quality chicken is the perfect ingredient for weaning puppies as it’s gentle on the digestive system, whilst providing protein and other nutrients to support growth and development.
From Milk to Food
After the initial feeding from mum, which generally lasts around three to four weeks, we suggest introducing our raw weaning paste. Offering a small amount at feeding time is a great way to encourage the transition from milk to solid puppy raw dog food. Generally, this process takes place between weeks three and six of a puppy’s life, but this can vary depending on the dog.
From the age of six weeks, you can transition your puppy onto our puppy formula, which is packed with all the essential nutrition to promote healthy growth and development in young dogs.

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.

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.
