A healthy life begins with healthy food. That’s why Wellness CORE offers balanced food tailored specially to support your puppy’s healthy growth and development.
Some facts about puppy teeth and how Whimzees can help:
BALANCE IS IMPORTANT
Puppies have different nutritional needs than adult dogs. To supply their growing bodies with energy and nutrients, it’s vital that they receive complete and balanced food. Wellness CORE contains all the essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and superfoods needed to get your little one ready for all the great adventures life has in store.
GRAIN-FREE, RICH IN MEAT
Proteins are the building blocks of muscles and fuel organ development. The meat proteins contained in Wellness CORE Puppy provide all the essential amino acids needed for a strong body and healthy skin & coat. Carbohydrates provide the energy a puppy needs to play, run and be a happy little dog. Over time, some dogs develop a hypersensitivity to certain types of carbohydrates, such as wheat and corn. Wellness CORE Puppy leaves out these ingredients and uses only grain-free, hypoallergenic carbohydrates.
FROM SMALL TO LARGE
Small dog breeds grow at a different pace than large breeds, and their nutritional needs are different. Small and medium breeds are fully grown after about 12 months. They burn more calories than large-breed puppies and have higher energy requirements per kilogram of body weight.
Large breeds, on the other hand, continue to grow for up to 2 years old. They need a diet that suits this slower growth rate, ensuring their bone structure is strong enough to support their body mass. Wellness CORE Large Breed Puppy is tailored for the nutritional needs of Large Breed dogs.
Dental problems are the most common health issue for adult dogs. By the age of 3, 80% of dogs suffer from some dental problems.
STARTING EARLY IS HALF THE BATTLE!
4 out of 5 adult dogs have dental issues. Over time, these dogs may experience severe pain, lose teeth or even develop systemic health problems.
The good news is that establishing a good dental health routine when young can help prevent this. WHIMZEES dental chews, formulated for puppies, can support this healthy routine from 3 months onwards.
TIPS FOR GREAT TEETH
Healthy teeth are the result of good oral hygiene. WHIMZEES vet Dr Danielle Bernal gives 5 tips to keep your puppy’s teeth in top condition.
START GOOD HABITS EARLY
Get your new puppy familiar with the activities involved in brushing their teeth. If you get them used to you popping a finger into their mouth and rubbing their gums from an early age, they will be used to it and more likely to tolerate dental checkups and tooth brushing.
Brush your dog’s teeth daily with an appropriate toothbrush and special toothpaste for dogs. (Never use human toothpaste to brush your dog’s teeth because it contains substances that are harmful to dogs.)
CHEW ON THE RIGHT THINGS
Dental chew snacks relieve the discomfort of emerging teeth and help keep teeth healthy. But puppies must chew on suitable snacks that are not too hard, for example. So choose a snack that has been specially developed for puppies.
A WHIMZEES TREAT FOR PUPPIES EVERY DAY
For clean teeth and a fresh breath, give a WHIMZEES chew snack for puppies every day.
An annual dental check-up at the vet’s brings any problems to light at an early stage.
