Bringing home a new puppy is a rewarding and exciting experience. What a lot of people don’t talk about is how it’s also confusing, especially if you’re a first-time puppy parent. Most common puppy care questions will hit you as you’re pushing your cart down the pet aisle. You’ll see tons of different dog foods and each one claims it’s the best. You can’t simply feed a puppy any dog food; their stomachs are sensitive and some puppy foods aren’t made with quality ingredients. Not only that, but puppies require a different diet than adult dogs. Puppy food has nutrition that encourages healthy growth. Not only do you need to pick the right brand, but you’ll need to figure out your puppy’s feeding schedule. Starting your puppy off with the right nutrition will help prevent health issues down the road.
