James Wellbeloved Puppy Turkey Rice is a naturally healthy complete dog food. As a white meat, turkey is full of goodness and is very gentle on the digestive tract. Turkey is a better white meat choice than chicken for a hypo-allergenic food because some dogs are known to have already developed a chicken hypersensitivity; a sensitivity to turkey is less likely because turkey is not used as much in pet food, so dogs will not have been over-exposed to it.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PUPPY AND JUNIOR FOOD? Puppy and junior food are both formulated for growing dogs. All puppies once weaned at around 6-7 weeks should be fed on James Wellbeloved puppy food. Depending on the adult size of the dog your puppy may benefit from being fed a junior food designed as a follow on food or medium and large breed dogs. It’s all to do with the age at which dogs mature. For example small dogs will be mature at 6 months and can gradually move onto their own small breed adult food then; whilst large dogs will continue to grow well into their second year and will benefit from being fed a large breed junior food. Check out our feeding guides for more details. HOW DO I KNOW WHEN MY PUPPY IS A ‘GROWN UP’ DOG? The age of maturity for dogs is related to their adult size. So your small terrier will be a grown up at around 6 months whilst a Great Dane will not mature until it is over 18 months old. It’s important to provide the puppy and junior foods your dog needs to ensure the correct rate of growth and a healthy adult life. Check out our feeding guides for more details.
