With mighty souls but little bodies, your small breed puppy has a unique physical composition that creates special nutritional needs. Our Small Breed Complete Health Puppy Turkey, Oatmeal & Salmon Meal Recipe is designed to support the unique health needs of smaller dogs through nutrient-rich whole foods.
- DHA- Supports Healthy Brain Development- We guarantee the level of DHA on every bag. Research suggests this important fatty acid helps support cognitive development, vital to learning and training.
- Antioxidant-rich fruits & veggies and vitamins & minerals help support healthy growth.
- Energy for Growth & Play- Carbohydrates provide energy. We use oatmeal, barley and brown rice because they’re easy to digest and full of nutrients. Just the right amount of high-quality protein and fat also help to keep up with their high energy needs.
- Up to 50% Longer Life Spans- With a life expectancy of up to 20 years, small breed’s life-systems need nutritional support to stay strong. Our Complete Health Recipe is packed with antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies, vitamins and minerals to help support cellular health.
- Smaller Digestive Tracts- Small breeds need to get lots of nutrition from the little portions they consume. We include live, naturally-occurring microorganisms to support digestive health and we ensure optimal nutrient absorption through our Digestool®confirmation studies – less nutrients in the stool, means more nutrients in the body.
- Need for Skin & Coat Support- Life indoors with extra lap time and petting means that little dogs need nourished skin that produces a healthy coat. To support healthy skin, we add flaxseed and salmon oil as part of our WellCoat® Omega 3 & Omega 6 Mix.
In addition to our quality protein and wholesome grains, this Complete Health recipe includes a unique mix of complementary ingredients for overall wellbeing.
- Fruit & Veggie Antioxidant Rainbow WellCoat®

Transitioning to Wellness: It is important to slowly transition your puppy from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to the new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5-7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness by day 7.
How to Feed Your Puppy: As puppies grow up they need to learn when, where and how to eat. Depending on age, puppies need to be fed at the same time and in the same place 2 – 4 times per day. Food should be removed after 20 minutes, if not eaten. In the beginning, puppy’s food can be moistened with a little warm water.
Determining Feeding Portions: Looking at the chart below, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your puppy per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Wellness believes in feeding dry and wet food in combination whenever possible to help increase the level of water in your puppy’s diet.
Every puppy is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size, activity level, breed and environment. Your vet can help determine your puppy’s optimal daily caloric intake for healthy growth and weight. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust as needed.
