A unique nutritional solution meeting the needs of the mother and her puppies during the first 5 stages of life: gestation, birth, lactation, weaning and growth up to 8 weeks. During the critical growth phase, the puppy's vulnerable immune system and digestive system are still developing. SMALL STARTER supports the mother and puppy's immune defenses with a special complex of antioxidants, and promotes optimal digestion with highly digestible ingredients, and prebiotics such as butyrate.
• During the end of gestation and through lactation, the mother's energy and nutritional needs change. SMALL STARTER helps to satisfy the mother's increased energy needs during this time, through a high energy (4255 kcal/kg) and fat (20.5%) content.
• Puppies require targeted nutritional support during the delicate transition from milk to solid food. SMALL STARTER helps to promote an easy transition to solid food and optimal stool quality through a highly digestible formula, including highly digestible proteins called low indigestible proteins (LIPs), as well as prebiotics and highly digestible carbohydrates.
• The mother may be fussy or even refuse to eat during gestation and lactation, while her puppies may have a difficult time adjusting to eating a solid kibble. SMALL STARTER is easily re-hydrated to help stimulate the mother’s fussy appetite, and to help her puppies transition to solid kibble with ease while being a highly palatable formula.
