As much as you may want your puppy to stay the same size forever, your little pooch is going to grow up quickly in this critical first year of life. Your four-legged friend is going to need the right nutrients in her food to help her thrive. As a result, starting your puppy off with the right food is important to her development for a long and healthy life.
What Food is Best for Puppies?
Good nutrition provides the building blocks for growth. Like any growing child, your puppy’s body has very specific nutritional needs to help her grow. This requires a good mix of key puppy food nutrients that each support a different part of your puppy’s development.
- Fresh Protein & Amino Acids – Support a strong immune system and build muscles
- Vitamins and Minerals – Help puppies develop a strong immune system, nerve activity, muscle growth, and proper metabolism
- Fiber and Carbohydrates – Provide puppies with energy and support healthy digestion
- Omega Fatty Acids – Help puppies develop healthy skin and a thick, shiny coat
Cooked Gently in Small Batches
While you can read through a puppy food’s ingredient list to identify if it contains these important components, it’s also important that your puppy food utilizes these key nutrients.
Many dog food brands use a process called extrusion to make their products. This process subjects the food to high temperatures and high pressures that can damage the nutrients your pup needs to thrive. At Bil-Jac, we slow-cook our dog food, in small batches, to protect the heat-sensitive nutrients found in high-quality chicken and organ meat. In turn, our puppy food can provide the nutritional excellence your newest best friend deserves.
Bil-Jac also uses 25 lbs. of fresh chicken to make a 30 lb bag of our Puppy Food Formulas. This helps to provide the protein your puppy needs to be healthy, and also provides a taste that puppies love!
Match the Puppy Formula to Your Pup
The size and breed of your puppy plays an important role in which formula you should choose. That’s why Bil-Jac offers a trio of specially formulated puppy foods for best friends of all shapes and sizes:
