    Not Recommended For:

    • Cats.
    • Obesity-prone non-lactating adults.
    • Puppies of large breeds (over 25 kg when adult) following weaning. After weaning, large breed puppies should be fed VetEssentials Puppy Large Breed.

     

    Additional Info:

    • During the last half of lactation, puppies can be weaned on to the same VetEssentials Puppy Mini food that is being fed to the bitch, which simplifies the weaning process.
    • The VetEssentials Puppy Mini formula is enriched with a high level of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an essential structural component of the brain which occurs naturally in mothers’ milk. Feeding VetEssentials Puppy Mini to pregnant and lactating bitches provides puppies with high levels of DHA before weaning. When also fed to puppies after weaning, additional DHA is supplied throughout the critical formation and development of brain and eyes.
    • VetEssentials Puppy Mini may be fed in combination with any canned formula of Science PlanTM Puppy.

  • Feeding Guide

    How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.

    DAILY FEEDING AMOUNTS

    These ranges are a starting point only because animals' needs vary. Adjust the feeding amount to maintain optimal body weight.

    PUPPIES

     VetEssentials Puppy Mini formula should be fed from weaning until maturity at 1 year old. The daily amount required by individual puppies may vary substantially. Therefore the amount should be adjusted to maintain optimal body weight and fed as 2-4 meals per day (the number may decrease with age).

    PREGNANCY

    The amount of VetEssentials Puppy Mini formula to feed pregnant bitches depends upon the stage of pregnancy. Often pregnancy is not recognised until the 4th or 5th week.
    LACTATION

    Lactating bitches should be fed unrestricted amounts of VetEssentials Puppy Mini (i.e. fed ad libitum) until weaning is completed.
