Is Your Puppy a Fussy Eater?

Advice for your medium breed puppy

Is your puppy a picky eater? … Have they stopped polishing off their meals with the same enthusiasm as they used to?


Don’t panic! … If your puppy is turning their nose up at their food, there are things you can do to help them get back on track




Weigh your puppy.





Check whether you are feeding your puppy the right amount. As a Junior, they should be eating 15g of food per 1kg of body weight.





If you are feeding more than recommended, gradually cut back on their feeding amounts to meet our recommended feeding guidelines.





Limit treats and extras. These tend to be high in fat and protein and will be very filling.






If your puppy is starting to lose their waistline and you can no longer feel their ribs, some smaller breeds may need to move across to one of our other adult diets.  If you think this is the case, then please get in touch with our nutrition team.



How to tell if your puppy is a healthy weight

You can check whether your puppy is a healthy weight with a simple test. Feel around their rib area. Can you feel their ribs? Can you see the outline of their ribcage? Your puppy’s last 2-3 ribs should be visible, especially when playing, twisting and turning.

If you can’t, it’s time to check your puppy’s weight and feeding amounts here
