Feeding guide in grams per day
Example: A breed with an expected adult weight of 10 kg. If the puppy weighs 3 kg (and therefore has not reached half of the adult weight), the daily requirement will be approximately 350 g SPECIFIC™ CPW Puppy All Breeds. When it weighs 6 kg (51-100% of the adult weight), the puppy requires approximately 440 g a day.
During lactation, the energy requirement depends on the number of puppies. For 2, 4 and 8 puppies, the increase in the energy requirement is 1.5, 2 and 3 times the requirement of a normal adult dog.
The daily individual requirement may vary depending on factors such as breed, environment, season and activity etc. It is therefore advisable to continue monitoring condition and body weight, adjusting the amount fed accordingly.
