By the time most puppies reach adulthood, they will have increased their birth weight by 40 to 50 times. However, as there is a great variation in dog size, from tiny Chihuahuas at around 2 kg to Irish Wolfhounds at around 70 kg bodyweight, growth periods vary. Small breed dogs generally reach...

Nutritional requirements of growing puppies differ with age. In canine species, for the high differences of size, growth dynamics are very variable. Therefore it is necessary to take into account the specific requirements of the dog at each age. In particular the nutrition during growth plays an...
