Puppy Nutrition with NHV's Vet Tech Johanna

Why is Puppy Diet Important?

A healthy diet can also help to build a healthy immune system.

Remember that your puppy’s diet when they’re young can set them up for a healthy life when they’re older, so paying attention to puppy diet is critical. Appropriate growth rates and lean body weight can help to avoid future joint disease and other medical conditions. NHV Pet Omega can help to support the joints and also encourages healthy skin and coat, among many other health benefits. Puppies have unique nutritional needs, different from adult dogs. They are active and playful and use a lot of energy to grow, which means they burn calories much faster than adult dogs. Because of this, they will need a balanced diet that provides them with the necessary calories, but not enough to make them overweight or too few that the calories are burned too fast.

A healthy diet can also help to build a healthy immune system. NHV Multi Essentials helps your puppy to adequately digest his food and metabolize energy and supply vitamins and minerals which are important for supporting good health.
