Nutro introduces Natural Choice Young Adult Formula
Young Adult formula is made especially to meet the nutritional needs of puppies and dogs from 6 months to 2 years of age.
It really can! Over weight puppies grow up to be overweight dogs.
However, adult dog food isn't the solution, it lacks the proper amounts of key nutrients needed by growing puppies.
|Here I am during my teenage time!|
Nutro has developed Young Adult Formula to meet the needs of teenager puppies without excess calories that lead to obesity. The Young Adult Formula has the correct amounts of calcium and phosphorus to support bone growth; DHA and fish oils for brain development; whole grains for better nutrient absorption, and carefully balanced protein, carbohydrate, and fat ratios to meet energy needs without excess calories that cause extra weight.
Dogs need 50% fewer calories once they've been spayed or neutered, so be sure to reduce the amount of food after your dog has recovered from the procedure. Since most of us undergo the procedure around 6 months of age, it is the pawfect time to switch to young adult food. The calories are reduced so we can still eat enough to satisfy our appetites with fewer calories. I think most of us would prefer a cup of young adult food instead of a half cup of puppy food. I don't know if the lesser amount of puppy food would still meet a growing puppy's nutritional needs. As teenage puppies we still need the same amounts of nutrients as we did before for proper development, but we need fewer calories. Finally a food has been developed to meet these specific needs!
I am not a veterinarian or nutritionist, neither is Mom, but we did have the opportunity to speak with an excellent veterinarian about the needs of young adult dogs. Our talk with Dr. Werber was very informative. Below is a video of one of his recent TV appearances.
