At 12 weeks your puppy should be eating solid food and should be fed to appetite as much as they want.
We believe the best way to feed a puppy is with a diet that their bodies were designed to consume. This means meat from protein (not cereals and grains) and essential vitamins from vegetables and fruits. This will help support essential brain, bone and teeth development as part of overall health.
All Applaws recipes have been carefully crafted with natural ingredients. We only use the finest cuts of chicken or fish in our wet food products and the only vitamins and minerals in the product are those which exist naturally. Our dry food contains extremely high levels of meat at 50% of the recipe and is cereal and grain free.
We recommend the best way to reproduce your dog’s natural diet in pre-prepared food is by feeding a complete dry food alongside a complementary wet food. We suggest a ratio of 60% wet complementary food to 40% dry complete food for a diet brimming with nutrition. Your puppy may like to have up to 8 smaller meals a day and some of these may be in the middle of the night! We recommend a bowl of Applaws complete dry food be left out 24 hours a day. You can then top up throughout the day using Applaws wet dog food.
Puppies have sensitive stomachs so it’s important to make any changes to their diet slowly. We suggest you switch them onto any new food gradually over 10-14 days, slowly increasing the volume bit by bit.
Be sure to always leave fresh water out for your puppy.
If your puppy has special requirements or you are unsure about any aspect of feeding your puppy, we always recommend you consult with your vet.
