If you’ve brought home a pup, you would already know how quickly they grow. One day they’re these tiny, palm-sized furballs, and the next, you’ll find that they barely fit into your lap. While not every dog breed grows at the same pace, all of them reach maturity at 24 months.
The nutrition they receive during this growth period determines how healthy and strong your canine companion will be. This post talks about the best food brands for puppies in India that will help your pup grow healthy and strong!
Be it adult or puppy food, Royal Canin is a French brand with a mission to make high-quality pet food accessible to everyone. This brand uses chicken for the meat requirement in their dog food products, along with ingredients with high antioxidant content, both of which are healthy for your pup’s growth.
Within the dry food range, you have four choices depending on the growing body weight of your pup:
Starter Mini (10 kilograms)
Starter Medium (11-25 kilograms)
Puppy Maxi (26-44 kilograms)
Puppy Giant (45 kilograms)
Do you carefully look for nutritious ingredients in dog food before deciding to buy? Then you would be happy with what you see in Drools. Drools claims to offer 100% real chicken with “nutrition in every single bite”.
