There are various types of Puppy Food available on the market, and it’s entirely up to you which one you choose to feed to your puppy. The two most popular choices of food are either wet food or dry food, but there are also a few alternative options such as the raw food diet, which are now becoming more, and more popular.
Dry Puppy Food is easily available at most pet supply stores, and it comes in many varieties. Many owners decide to use dry Puppy Food because there is little or no odor and it tends to create less of a mess! Dry food is also easy to store, and when purchased in large quantities can often work out to be the cheapest option. If you do decide to use dry Puppy Food, it is advisable to make sure the food you are using has all the necessary vitamins your puppy needs such as protein, vitamins, minerals, fats, and carbohydrates. It may be necessary to add a little hot water while your puppy is being weaned onto the dry food, so the puppy gets used to the consistency.
Wet Puppy Food is also readily available and as with the dry feed can be suited to your pocket. However, some people prefer using wet puppy feed as not only does it look more edible in either the meaty variety and pate variety it also has a stronger odor which some owners say is more interesting for the puppy. Which ever variety of wet food you choose, tins, pouches, premium or bargain, you must ensure that the food is suitable for puppies and have the correct vitamins for your puppies needs.
