Owning a puppy is a huge responsibility as many dog owners will testify to! Every puppy owner wants to give their puppy the best start in life, and without a doubt one of the most important decisions is nutrition. What should you feed your puppy? There is so much to choose from that decisions on what to feed your puppy can seem overwhelming. The first thing to remember is that not all dog food is created equally. In general, a lower price dog food may mean that the protein sources eg the cuts of meat used in the food are of a lesser quality than a higher priced dog food. On the flip side, an expensive dog food doesn’t necessarily mean that the quality of food on offer is the best on the market either. So how do you decide? At this stage of your pup’s young life, a dog food using a quality protein source fed consistently, little and often is key.
Nature’s Harvest Puppy is a gently steamed complete wet food for younger dogs made with chicken & brown rice. It’s a simple formula that won’t upset your puppy’s delicate and growing stomach. Our protein source, chicken, is of human grade which means that the chicken used in our Nature’s Harvest Puppy food can also be eaten by humans too. It’s not uncommon for some dog foods to be made with parts of protein sources that are not for human consumption.
Why chicken? We’ve chosen chicken with its high vitamin, protein and fat content because most dogs can digest poultry easily.
Why brown rice? We use brown rice to add fibre which aids in the binding of the food, allowing for a firm stool which is always good if you are the one doing the picking up!
Why steam? Steaming allows the food to cook gently over a longer period keeping the food moist without destroying all the nutrients within.
Nature’s Harvest Puppy does not contain any meat or vegetable nasties, fillers, artificial flavours, colours or preservatives that are often found in other pet foods. These can cause allergies in young dogs that lead to unnecessary health problems in later life.
We boost our recipes with glucosamine & chondroitin to support the growth of your pup’s joints, natural rubbed herbs and vitamin C to promote antioxidant properties that protects cells from damage from free radicals (nasty, invisible molecules) present in the environment, as well as adding yeast extract which strengthens your puppies’ immune system. We also add good fats such as omega 3 and 6 which are important for the maintenance of healthy skin and glossy coats.
Nature’s Harvest Puppy Chicken & Brown Rice is available in single trays of 395g or 10 tray packs.

Many puppies need a little “crunch” in their food, something to get their teeth into while they are growing. Our Nature’s Harvest Wheat Gluten Free Mixer is an ideal accompaniment to Nature’s Harvest Puppy.
