Puppies are hands down one of my favorite stages of life to work with. Every breed is unique, each phase of puppy-hood brings something new, they’re fun, they’re cute, & their nutrition needs are very specific. No two puppies are identical and so that means we have to treat them & feed them as the individuals they are.
Puppy 1:1’s are a good fit for puppy owners who want to talk about something specific or who want to learn the about the nutritional needs of their puppy.
Client Onboarding Package
A welcome package outlining your formulation project details and timeframe.
I create a client portal where your documents are housed: All client forms, copies of emails, any medical records, laboratory analysis reports, medication information, etc. Careful documentation and reporting are needed to effectively track your pet’s nutritional health so any changes are uploaded here for future reference.
A Balanced Diet Formulation
Your puppy’s recipe(s) is formulated using canine nutrition guidelines recommended for your specific pup. The recipe that is formulated for your puppy will not be applicable to another puppy as the formulation is that specific.
I do not use chicken in formulations unless there is a specific reasons as it is a commonly problematic protein for dogs. Additionally, using better protein options allow for less additional ingredients.
Each recipe includes one minor adjustment to the type of ingredients used for fiber and or antioxidants, as anything further than that would cause the recipe to be imbalanced and require a complete reformulation.
Expanded Recipe Information for Growth
Formulations are created to optimally grow your puppy for up to the next 5 – 15 lbs., depending on the puppy and particular case details. Please note that the wider range of lbs. is for large and extra-large breed puppies. This is not possible with small or medium breed puppies as the growth is not as large-scale. Small and medium breed puppies receive kcals recipe information for the next 5 – 10 lbs. if the puppy is of a breed/breeds that weighs more than 10 lbs. as adults. Recipes cannot be applied to dogs they are not formulated for as they cannot be guaranteed to meet another dog’s needs.
I take the guesswork out of what to buy & how much to buy with a complete ingredients list that includes measurements for your balanced recipe. You can take this with you to the store or have it next to you for online shopping and use it to buy the amount you need based on your meal or batch size.
Gut Support Information
It is crucial to provide gut support to growing puppies. Even more with some breeds. As part of your package, you receive gut support information specific to your puppy.
1:1 Video Meeting or Phone Call
We will have a 1:1 call together to discuss the recipe formulation(s) and I can answer questions for you pertaining to feeding your puppy.
