Small dogs typically live longer than larger dogs, but they also reach adulthood sooner. This means your small puppy needs the right energy content to help support its immune system – this develops gradually even though its body grows rapidly.

It provides a balanced intake of fibres to help facilitate intestinal transit and contribute to good stool quality. It’s also designed to meet the energy needs of very small breed puppies during the growth period. Puppies are more vulnerable than its adult counterparts; providing your puppy with food that’s especially tailored to its needs is highly recommended to help give it the best start in life and to support it as it grows.
