Puppies aged up to two months should be fed with meals, which are in our terminology are known as Mini Starter. This meal is essential for the basic growth of the puppy. It is basically given to puppies which weigh from 1-10 Kgs. The Mini starter meal is equally essential for the female dog, at the end of gestation and when they are lactating.
Even after agreeing to the nutrient potential offered by Mini Starter, it is amazing that how the same food can ideally be suitable for both newborn and adult dog. The reality is that Royal Canin Starter food has been inspired by professional birth research programme that meets the nutritional needs of both of the female dogs as well as their newborn puppies.
More about Mini Starter
Mini starter is available in 1 kg, 3 kg and 8.5 Kg packets. It has tiny kibbles. If given to pregnant female dogs, then healthy pups are born. Initially, it should be soaked to make gruel at first. When the pups are grown enough, then it can be directly given to them since they are tiny, triangular shaped pieces of kibbles.
Overall, mini starter is 100% complete and balanced nutrient solution and its satisfaction is guaranteed by ROYAL CANIN.
