Frequently asked questions
  • Can I feed my puppy with a home-made diet?

    The food that puppys receive throughout their first year must obviously provide energy and materials to build the skeleton, the muscles and all the new tissues. But nutrition doesn't stop there: it must also help puppys to develop a fully functioning nervous system and effective immune system. Any deficiency in essential nutrients (those who cannot be synthesized by the animal's body) during this very delicate period  may affect the dog's future health.

    Many recipes developed by veterinary nutritionists are available for owners who wish to prepare a nutritionally balanced home-made diet for their puppy. However, it is illusory to succeed in respecting all the required conditions because the nutritional balance of a household ration is subject to various hazards. The owner will always find it difficult to follow the recipe exactly, the necessary ingredients are not always available, and the nutritional composition of the ingredients can vary considerably depending on the origin of the product. When preparing a home-made diet, no laboratory analysis can verify the nutritional composition of the raw materials used! 

    Therefore, even when accompanied by the distribution of a mineral and vitamin supplement, home-made diets for dogs often show deficiencies in some essential nutrients.

  • Can I feed my puppy with a vegetarian diet?

    The dog is a carnivore, which means that certain nutrients he needs cannot be provided by a plant-based diet. Such diets can cause major nutritional deficiencies with serious consequences on health. For this reason, a puppy should never be fed a vegetarian diet.

  • Can I feed my puppy with raw meat diets?

    Raw meat diets (red meat or chicken) are often deficient in calcium and phosphorus. The Calcium/Phosphorus ratio is totally inappropriate for the canine species, especially in terms of bone growth. Such a diet can cause major nutritional deficiencies with serious consequences on health. For example, when fed exclusively a raw meat diet, the puppy is exposed to the risk of pathologic fractures following minor trauma.
