Do I have to transition the mother dog to the puppy feed?
If your bitch is fed our Platinum feed and digests it well there is generally no need to switch her to our puppy feed.

How do I transition puppies after the suckling period?
Our MENU Chicken wet feed is very well suited to start feeding puppies after the suckling period.

Blending a small portion of the MENU Chicken wet feed with some lukewarm water and then offering the puppies the resulting puree as a „first meal“ has proven successful.

In the following days, you can gradually add more crumbled puppy dry feed to let the puree meal slowly peter out. Our Puppy dry feed is very easy to crush thanks to a residual moisture content of 18% and the puppies are quite keen on the resulting small pieces.

When can I start feeding the Puppy Chicken dry feed?
Your puppy will appreciate having something to chomp on starting by the fourth week of after birth. This is the right time to offer puppies solid feed and water in addition to the milk they get from their mother. You can also start to feed Platinum Puppy Chicken around the same time.
