Chicken and rice croquette formula – small breed (puppy)

Performatrin Prime Chicken and Rice Formulas for puppies are available for all breeds, small and large. Puppies have unique growth rates, and their daily energy and nutritional needs are different from adult dogs. During their growth period, puppies require a diet rich in proteins with omega and fatty acids to support brain and ocular system growth and development. This food is formulated to support your puppy’s growth and development and provide everything necessary to support their overall health.

Key Benefits:

  • Supports the development of lean muscle mass. Composed mainly of high-quality chicken.
  • A delicious, highly nutritious, and protein-rich recipe to support the puppy’s higher metabolic rate.
  • Protects dental health in three ways:
    • The kibble texture is formulated to help reduce plaque buildup. Simply by chewing, the texture acts like toothbrush bristles. With added fiber in the kibble, this texture keeps the puppy’s teeth clean.
    • Sodium hexametaphosphate reduces tartar buildup on the puppy’s teeth.
    • Omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids support the development of healthy skin.
  • Significant source of natural prebiotics.
  • Added blend of antioxidant nutrients.
  • Easy-to-digest ingredients for puppies.

Choosing Performatrin Prime puppy formulas provides the best conditions for the puppies’ development.

Your puppy's nutritional needs may differ from the feeding guide. Adjust the food quantities if necessary to maintain optimal physical condition. During the last three weeks of pregnancy and while nursing, mothers may need two to three times their normal daily food intake. When introducing Performatrin Prime for the first time, a gradual transition from your puppy's current food will minimize digestive upset. Over the first 5 to 10 days, gradually increase the proportion of Chicken and Rice Croquette Formula (Puppy) and decrease the proportion of your current puppy food. Keep fresh and clean drinking water available at all times. Store the food in a cool, dry place. Daily Feeding Guide:
