Feeding Your Dogs....

Puppy 0-6 Months

When getting your first puppy, it can be a daunting experience. If you are moving your puppy onto our foods you need to gradually introduce the new food to the puppies current food over a 5-7 day period, this is done to avoid upset stomachs.

You can feed our puppy foods moist, we usually recommend doing this until they are at least 3-4 weeks old. To do this you can put hot water on the food, leave to soak and then mash the food down to a paste like texture, make sure the food is cool before serving and always ensure there is fresh drinking water down.

Always feed the recommended amount on the bag, over feeding puppies could encourage acceleration in growth which can result in skeletal abnormalities where joints are not formed correctly.

Make sure you keep an eye on how fast your puppies eat their food, eating too fast can cause bloating.

We also have our own Puppy Guide, which has tips and advice which will be of help. you can download this by clicking here

Junior 6-12 Months

When puppies reach the ages of 6 months plus, you can look at moving them onto an adult food, not all puppies require a higher protein level at 6 months however it is breed dependent (the larger the breed, the longer you should stay on puppy food)

However if you are looking at moving onto adult food, you again need to gradually introduce the new food into the puppies diet, over a 5-7 day period.

As puppies are still developing at this age, you still need to make sure they are not eating too fast, usually if the advice has been followed since an early age they won’t start now but it is always wise to keep an eye on them.

When working out what you need to feed your dog, don’t forget to take treats into account.

We have a wide range of adult foods starting with our Wonderdog Range which are diets formulated for active adult dogs, Then we have our Grain Free & Hypoallergenic Range which are diets formulated for dogs with sensitive stomachs or simply if they prefer a specific flavour.

Adult 12 Months+

A the age of 12 months, the majority of dogs are fully developed at this point, if you haven’t already moved from puppy food you should now.

As above, always ensure you gradually introduce the new food to the dogs current diet over a 5-7 day period.

We have a wide range of adult foods starting with our Wonderdog Range which are diets formulated for active adult dogs, Then we have our Grain Free & Hypoallergenic Range which are diets formulated for dogs with sensitive stomachs or simply if they prefer a specific flavour.

We have a handy, find a recipe tool which you can use to find the most suitable diet.

When working out what you need to feed your dogs, don’t forget to take treats into account.

As dogs get older you might want to look at feeding them a lower protein diet, we have a couple of diets which are suitable in this case.

Basic information on dog nutrition for dog owners who wish to know a little more.

The manufacture, production, recipes and labelling of dog food have developed greatly over the past 40 years. There are many differing opinions as to what was and what is now best for your dog’s wellbeing.

With 1 in 3 visits to the vets being digestion and food related as well as the associated bills you will inevitably try to balance the money you have available for daily feeding with the quality of the food you select.

Like many other industries dog food companies vary from micro producers up to multi-national global brands. Sneyd’s has manufactured and produced complete dry dog food from the beginning. It is our considered opinion that our products are optimised to be the best possible for your dog’s wellbeing and the resulting price per day is the lowest possible in the market for the recipes we produce.

Many people question why dog food companies put ash in dog food. This is as a result of seeing ash listed under the analysis section of a dog feed label. This analysis refers to a test carried out on the manufactured kibble where amongst other things the kibble is incinerated. The level of ash therefore reflects the minerals in the feed that can not be destroyed.

As far as Puppy food is concerned there is a lot of confusion about when to move a puppy from puppy to adult feed. Essentially puppy feed is balanced differently to adult feed. During its growth phase the puppy benefits from differing nutrient balances to aid growing bones and organs. Once the puppy has stopped growing it needs an adult feed that delivers nutrients balanced to simply “maintain” the animals physiology.
