Performatrin ® Puppy Large Breed Formula Dog Food
Puppies have varied nutritional need, depending on their expected mature weight. Large breed puppies, including those of mixed ancestry, have different daily energy and nutrient requirements, as well as growth patterns, than their smaller cousins. A large breed puppy’s growth phase is significantly longer than a small breed puppy’s and its weight increase, between birth and full maturity, is much more than that of a small breed. If a large breed puppy grows too fast, he may have uneven bone growth – often leading to a weaker skeletal structure and painful joints in later life. Now you can feed your puppy an advanced super-premium diet designed especially with your large breed’s size and specific needs in mind.

This formula is 100% complete, balanced nutrition and makes dining a delicious experience for your puppy. Make all food changes gradually. Always provide access to clean, fresh water.
