The main growth and development phase for medium-sized breeds predominantly takes place during the first six months of your puppyâs life. In order to grow into a healthy adult dog, you should avoid diets with excessive calcium, as well as feeding your puppy too much or too little at mealtimes. A healthy diet should contain a balanced mix of vital nutrients, as well as an adapted content of essential carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals, all of which help your puppy to lead a long and healthy life. Pregnant and lactating dogs have similar nutritional needs as puppies, so also benefit from a diet with increased energy, protein, vitamins and minerals.
