I did a lot of internet searching in the first couple of weeks we brought Duke home. I’d forgotten what it was like to have a puppy! What food to buy was my number one concern and I was overwhelmed with all the information out there. One fact that I read over and over was that when I introduced a new food I was to change it over slowly. Meaning the first week of the switch I only gave him 1/4 amount of new food mixed with 3/4 old food. I slowly let the puppy stomach adjust. I will admit that we had 1 or 2 days of soft stools as I was switching, but now we are at 100% new food and I feel as though he is happy and healthy and growing like a weed!
You remember last month when I introduced Nature’s Variety? Well, we (Hubby, Duke and I) like it so much that we continue to use the Instinct Raw Boost for Puppies in the Large Breed formula. The old food the previous owners gave us is history and this is the path we’ve chosen from now on. This variety brings you grain-free kibble plus freeze dried raw pieces together in the same bag – the perfect combination of convenience and nutrition to give your puppy the best health you can.
- Grain-free and gluten-free formula
- High protein kibble with freeze-dried raw pieces
- Probiotics for a healthy digestive system
- Omega 3 and 6 for healthy skin and coat
- Antioxidants for a healthy immune system
- Natural DHA for eye and brain development
- Ideal levels of calcium and phosphorus for developing bones and teeth
I want to show you those freeze-dried raw pieces – I can tell he loves those best!
Duke is now 4.5 months old and he has not chewed up the whole house yet! I do have a nice list of items I’ve had to re-buy though – computer charger, sunglasses, googles, toys, cups, even clothes that he has ripped with his teeth.
Here are his new favorite toys from Chewy.com and you can tell exactly what he is thinking in this picture – yes you gave me new toys and I’m going to bring all three under the table to chew at the same time.
Those stuffed ones are really fun because they have crinkle sounds or squeaks. Yes just like baby toys!
Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost can be found at Chewy.com
You can put it on monthly autoship and save 5%. This is great because I remember what it is like to try and lift those bags into your cart at the store – then the car – then home. Make it easy on yourself and your back!
