    Indications:

    • Puppies of small and medium breeds from weaning
      until 1 year old
    • Pregnant and lactating bitches

     

     

    Not Recommended For:

    • Cats
    • Obesity-prone non-lactating adults
    • Puppies of large breeds (over 25 kg when adult) following weaning. After weaning, large breed puppies should be fed Science Plan™ Puppy Healthy Development™ Large Breed.

     

    Additional Info:

    • During the last half of lactation, puppies can be weaned on to the same Science Plan™ Puppy food that is being fed to the bitch, which simplifies the weaning process.
    • Science Plan™ Puppy Healthy Development™ formulas are enriched with a high level of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an essential structural component of the brain which occurs naturally in mothers' milk. All Science Plan™ Puppy Healthy  Development™ formulas (other than Large Breed) can be fed to pregnant and lactating bitches and will provide puppies with a high level of DHA before weaning. When the appropriate Science Plan™ Puppy formula is also fed to puppies after weaning, additional DHA is supplied throughout the critical formation and development of brain and eyes.

  • How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.

    These amounts are a starting point only because animals’ needs vary. Adjust the feeding amount to maintain optimal body weight.

     

    PUPPIES

    Science PlanTM Puppy formulas should be fed from weaning until maturity at 1 year old. The daily amount required by individual puppies typically varies by ±16% (e.g. a 4 month old, 4 kg puppy may require between 105 and 145 grams of these Science PlanTM Puppy Healthy DevelopmentTM dry formulas per day).  Therefore these amounts should be adjusted to maintain optimal body weight, and fed as 2 - 4 meals per day (the number may decrease with age). 

     

    PREGNANCY

    The amount of these Science PlanTM Puppy formulas to feed to pregnant bitches depends upon the stage of pregnancy.  Often pregnancy is not recognised until the 4th or 5th week.

     

    LACTATION

    Lactating bitches should be fed unrestricted amounts of Science PlanTM Puppy or Science PlanTM Puppy Healthy DevelopmentTM Mini (i.e. fed ad libitum) until weaning is completed.
