Puppy time is important for the rest of your dog's life, this is where it grows and develops. It is important that your puppy grows as it should and at the right pace, therefore we recommend that you give your puppy puppy food and not Barf food, as this can quickly go wrong. There will be plenty of time to drive Barf when your dog is an adult and remember that Barf makes great demands on its owner.
A food for puppies is what is called growth food, which is balanced to achieve optimal bone development and fluid in the puppy's first year. This is done by ensuring the puppy food has the right amount of nutrients that are adapted to puppies.
Here at Us with pets, you will therefore also find a wide range of quality puppy food, which ensures your puppy the best possible conditions.

How a puppy's nutritional needs are different from ours
In a study of homemade dog food, 90% of the food was found to have a nutritional imbalance that is insufficient for dogs* • Each breed has its own nutritional needs. Cooking for your dog is not the same as cooking for your children and yourself. Puppies' nutritional needs are different from humans. • Food that is not properly balanced to meet the puppy's needs can lead to health problems.
The transition from puppy food to adult food
Now that your puppy is almost an adult dog, you should consider changing its food from regular puppy food to adult food that suits the dog's needs.
New food should be introduced gradually, even if your puppy seems to like it. This reduces the likelihood of your dog developing an upset stomach. the changes in the food. Changes to the food affect different animals in different ways, so it is important to carefully monitor the transition from puppy food. Dogs are generally creatures of habit. Your dog may need help changing his food, especially if he/she is used to only having one type of food. Another reason could also be that your dog already eats a varied diet, that the vet has recommended a special diet for clinical reasons (such as allergies, kidney disease or the need to lose weight).
You can try some of the following suggestions to make the transition between the two types of feed easier:
- Gradually introduce the new feed over 7 days.
- Increase the amount of the new food approx. 10% every day, mixed in the old food. Increase the amount of the new food approx. 10% every day until you only feed the new food.
- Avoid feeding cold food.
- If necessary, change the texture of the canned food by adding a little warm water to soften and mix the old food with the new food.
- Don't feel tempted to add "human food" to the new diet. Most dogs end up eating only the "human food" and this can become a bad habit in the long run.
- Always have a bowl of clean, fresh water ready.
- No dog should starve while new food is being introduced.
- If it is very difficult to change your dog's food, talk to your vet and see what advice he/she can give you. If your dog needs to change its food due to the treatment of an illness, it is very important to follow the advice you have received from the vet. Appetite can be affected by the disease, so talk to your vet about any advice for your dog.
