Puppies are ready to be gradually transitioned to adult food once they reach about 80% of their expected mature (adult) body weight.
Small dogs grow faster than larger dogs, so small dogs will reach 80% of their mature weight and be ready to be weaned onto adult dog food at a younger age than large dogs. The following is a guide to the approximate age at which different types of dogs should be gradually transitioned to adult dog food (this is best done gradually over a period of about a month by blending increasing quantities of adult food with the puppy food).
|Expected Adult Body Weight||Age of Transition to Adult Food|
|Less than 5kg||7 months +|
|5kg to 25kg||12 months +|
|25kg to 50kg||18 months +|
The above is intended as a rough guide. Please contact us if you need more specific information regarding your puppy.
