Premium Dog Food Made in Germany
Product description

For familiarisation with solid food during hand-rearing

An optimally composed puppy diet is the best foundation for healthy development. The food needs to be extremely easy to digest during the weaning phase and during familiarisation with solid food. So Happy Dog Puppy Starter contains very well tolerated lamb and highly-digestible rice in a recipe with 30 % protein and 16 % fat that is perfectly matched to the needs of puppies. Based on the Happy Dog Natural Life Concept®, puppies are supplied with all they need to benefit their bodies holistically, giving them a care-free start to a long and healthy life.

The fine granule structure is ideal for the initial familiarisation with solid food and for problem-free and gentle feeding in a puppy’s weaning phase from 21 days. Mix with water or puppy milk (Happy Dog Puppy Milk) to create a thin porridge that puppies will eat enthusiastically. Happy Dog Puppy Starter Lamb & Rice also dissolves very easily. The porridge is ready to feed after just 3 minutes.

From 5 to 6 weeks, the food is gradually changed over to a suitable Happy Dog Puppy product.

Complete feed for puppies from 4 to 6 weeks.
