This table is intended as a guide only and exact feeding amounts should be varied according to your puppy's breed, sex, and condition and activity levels. Puppies should be fed 3-4 times per day.

Technical Focus

Minerals

Minerals are inorganic elements, e.g. calcium and phosphorus, which are essential for the body's metabolic processes. Only about 4% of a dogs total body weight comprises of mineral matter; however, like the vitamins the presence of these elements in dog food is essential for life. Not only do they provide skeletal support but they are also involved in a whole array of essential functions like nerve transmission and muscle function.

To make matters even more complicated each mineral interrelates with the others in absorption, metabolism and function. When puppies and young dogs are growing rapidly it is therefore absolutely essential that this balance of minerals is correct for early bone and tissue development and organ function.
