It’s an exciting time!

Your family grows when you welcome a new puppy into your home. Before their first moment in your arms, you’re already stocked up with all the "puppy essentials" like new toys, a bed, blanket, pee pads, teething toys, treats, a crate, their first leash and collar, and (most importantly) puppy food.

Let's explore that last one a bit more.


Unpacking Puppy Food

You might think puppy food is a marketing ploy created in the boardrooms of big agencies to sell more dog food... Actually, not so much. A growing puppy has different needs than an adult or senior dog.

At just eight weeks old, your puppy has stopped feeding from her mother, and you’re now their trusted provider when it comes to...well, everything. What she eats and the nutrients she gets are arguably one of the most important aspects of her puppy development.

Feeding puppy and mother

The nutrients she got from her mother’s milk helped her grow to be the healthy puppy she came to you as, but what most people don’t think about is that your puppy still needs some of those vital nutrients after she makes your home her new one.


Leaving Mama Dog Behind 😢

Weaning a puppy off mother’s milk and onto puppy food is a critical step that should be done with extra care. It shouldn’t just be one quick jump from one to the other. This is simply because puppy food doesn’t contain all the nutrients mother’s milk has, like lactotransferrin, a powerful immunity factor that helps foster an impenetrable immune system.

When you don’t properly wean a puppy off her mother’s milk, she’s at risk of missing out on these nutrients and may not develop to her fullest potential.


How We Can Help

To help fill the gap between the weaning period and also provide vital nutrients to help aid skeletal, organ and muscular development, we crafted Puppy Gold. We want your puppy to have unparalleled health for her entire life.

With our Puppy Gold blend, we added both bioactive proteins and lactotransferrin to jump-start an impenetrable immune system, plus vital nutrients to assist in her growth, to ensure she starts off on the right paw.

A new puppy is an exciting time in your life (and theirs!), and ensuring they have everything they need to live a full and happy life is a lot to think about. From properly socializing, to vet visits and potty training, it’s no small feat to raise a puppy.

Take one stressor out of the process by making sure their nutrition needs are covered.
