Puppy Diet Guide
What should I feed my puppy?
Ensuring your puppy has a complete well balanced diet will keep them happy and healthy.
Please follow our Puppy Diet Guide to ensure your puppy receives all the essential vitamins and nutrients that it needs to thrive.
Prime Chicken and Brown Rice is an excellent source of protein and can be purchased through Coles Supermarkets, Woolworths and online stores. Refer to our Puppy Feeding Chart for amounts depending on weight and age.
Prime 100 Chicken & Brown Rice Dog Food Roll 2kg
Lactose Free Milk
Some puppies can develop an intolerance or an allergy to certain ingredients in food. Dairy products that contain
lactose can be a prime source of trouble for your puppy so we recommend using Lactose Free Milk to avoid tummy upsets, rashes and loose stools.
Give your puppy 250-500ml of lactose free milk
into a bowl twice a day until puppy is 12 months old.
Ensure that your puppy always has access to clean drinking water.
Provide a separate bowl for water.
Dry Dog Food
Give your puppy 2-3 handfuls in a bowl each day around midday
If uneaten within a day discard.
We use Variety Shapes from Upmarket Pets
Raw Chicken and Beef Bones
From 12 weeks of age feed one raw chicken wing/drumstick/frame to your puppy every couple of days.
It is important to also give your dog beef bones on a regular basis for mantaining dental hygiene.
Never feed your dog chocolate or onions.
Both contain ingredients that are
HIGHLY TOXIC to dogs!
If you suspect your dog has eaten either of these contact your vet immediately.

How much should I feed my puppy?
Maintaining ideal body condition is key to encouraging proper growth in all puppies. View our Puppy Feeding Chart for amounts based on age and weight.
The indicated amounts are only a guideline.
If your puppy becomes overweight, a reduction of your puppy’s daily food intake may be appropriate.
As puppies near adulthood, their calorie needs may drop, and your puppy may begin leaving some food in the bowl. Don't misinterpret this as an indication of dislike for the food. Instead, begin offering less so your puppy doesn't overeat and stays in ideal body condition.
