The basis of a long and active dog life is a species-appropriate, balanced nutrition during the important phase of growth and development. Smaller breed puppies tend to reach adulthood by 10-12 months, but large breed puppies keep on growing up until they are 15 months old. In order to grow into a healthy adult dog, your puppy needs a specialised food to meet their various nutritional needs. When deciding on a food for your large breed junior dog, you should take the extended growth phase in to consideration, and avoid diets with excessive energy and mineral contents. 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. Pregnant and lactating dogs have similar nutritional needs as puppies, so also benefit from a diet with increased energy, protein, vitamins and minerals. Concept for Life Large Junior is a dry dog food formulated to suit the needs of large breed puppies up to 15 months of age.
