Royal Canin Medium Breed Puppy
The growth stage of puppies ends at about twelve months. Puppies increase their body weight by 40 to 50 times in their first year. Therefore they need twice as much energy as an adult dog to satisfy this intensive metabolic activity. Optimal calcium levels are critical, since both deficiency and excess can have adverse effects, for skeletal development, which is not completed before the age of 12 months. It takes 12 months for a Medium-sized puppy to reach adult weight. This crucial growth stage requires a very high-energy food, that takes into account the underdeveloped digestive ability.
· Sodium tripolyphosphate and specialized kibbles help to reduce dental plaque and limit tartar formation.
· A puppy's digestive abilities develop slowly with age. Prebiotics such as fructo-oligosaccharides and mannan-oligosaccharides, beneficial fiber from beet pulp and insoluble minerals help make digestion easier for the MEDIUM puppy's sensitive stomach.
· Nutrients like mannan-oligosaccharides and antioxidants (vitamins E and C, taurine and lutein) help support the puppys natural immune system.
· High levels of EPA and DHA from anchovy oil promote the healthy development of the puppys brain and nervous system.
· Specially balanced levels of calcium and phosphorus ensure optimal bone growth and healthy teeth.
