Puppy feeding guide by breed
Dogs come in all shapes and sizes, so to keep your pup in tip-top shape you’ll need to tailor their diet to things like their breed, age, weight and dietary needs. After all, you don’t want to be feeding your Toy Poodle the same amount of food as a German Shepherd!
To help you keep your furry friend fit and healthy, we’ve put together this helpful puppy feeding guide.
Start your pup off on the right paw!
Here at Hypro Premium we serve dogs all over the country – especially those with very unique quirks and dietary needs. So it’s safe to say that we know dogs! We also know that each pup has to be fed the right dog food according to their breed, age, weight and other factors.
Because of this, it’s very easy for owners – especially if you have a new dog – to get lost in all the conflicting information out there. So to make things easy, here’s what you should be focusing on most when working out the best feeding plan for your pet.
Consider your puppy’s breed, age and energy levels
Unlike cats, there is an incredibly diverse range of sizes when it comes to dog breeds. So buying one type of dry food for a large breed may not be appropriate for a smaller breed.
For those bringing new puppies home, it’s also essential to buy dog food for puppies instead of adult food. This is because young pups have different dietary needs during the first few months of their lives. They also require different serving sizes depending on their current weight.
Speaking of weight, this is undoubtedly the most important consideration for most pet owners. Whether your pooch is a little pudgy, or you need to add more food to their diet to counteract the amount of exercise they are doing every day, knowing your pet’s weight will directly influence how much dry food you need to feed them.
Which Hypro Premium product is right for your dog?
To help you wrap your head around the type and amount of food you should be feeding your pet, here are some examples of Hypro Premium dry foods that have been designed for different types of pets:
- Hypro Premium Chicken & Duck: This high-quality dry food is has been specially formulated to help maintain the health and wellbeing of all adult dogs. That means any breed will do, just like our Kangaroo & Lamb and Ocean Fish varieties. The only thing you need to make sure of is the amount of food your pet eats according to their weight range.
- Hypro Premium Kangaroo & Turkey: Working dogs like Border Collies, Kelpies and Blue Heelers often need a different diet than pets of similar breeds and weight ranges. Why? Because they are exercising for hours on end every day, so they need more food to keep their diets balanced. This premium dog food is made specifically for working dogs, so you can trust your working mate is getting the nutrition they need each day.
- Hypro Premium Turkey & Lamb: This delicious dry food blend is designed for puppies (all breeds) and adult dogs that are whelping. It’s high in protein from meat (73%) and the rest is made up of nutritious fruits and vegetables to help your pup grow up big and strong!
