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 a bowl of lactose free milk once daily until puppy is 12 months old.



Ensure that your puppy always has access to clean drinking water.

Provide a separate bowl for water.

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.
