Assisi Animal Sanctuary is Northern Ireland's largest independent animal welfare charity providing shelter for up to 200 companion animals - cats, dogs and rabbits.
Feeding a puppy the correct diet is essential to ensure its optimum physical development. At Assisi we feed our puppies on a very good quality, nutritional food that can be purchased at many pet stores. Our puppies get three meals per day.
Obviously smaller dogs require less food than larger dogs. It’s a question of monitoring your pup. If your puppy is regularly leaving a lot of food in its bowl, you may be offering too much food.
A dog is the right weight when you can feel their ribs, but can’t see them.
