Common puppy food questions

Have we missed anything? Jump on live chat and ask us about your pup

Sure is. All 3 of our recipes are 100% nutritionally complete for all life stages.

We’ve got large breed pups & their quick-growing bones covered too, but only on our Turkey, Beef & Lamb Recipe.

Our Kangaroo & Lamb recipes has a calcium:phosphorus ratio slightly too high for us to recommend, but we’ll tell you at checkout if we don’t think either recipe is right for your dog.

Puppies require at least 22.5% protein (on a dry matter basis).

A high-quality protein provides the essential building blocks for muscles and organs. But not all protein is created equal. Dogs do better with plenty of high-quality animal protein. The best puppy food should have a specific animal protein as the first ingredient – for example ‘Turkey’, not ‘poultry’ which can suggest a mix of animal leftovers.

Both Scratch recipes only use specific animal proteins and have more meat than most other foods.

That’s a tricky one.

Adult food is just a worse version of puppy food, not requiring as much protein and DHA. But a healthy adult dog will thrive on high protein diets and DHA comes from salmon oil, so a really good puppy food should be ideal for a dog through their adult lives.

A puppy is technically an adult for feeding requirements once they physically mature and stop growing in height.

Sure can. We have plenty of customers mix feeding Scratch with raw, or even wet food in their younger years.

We’ll give you a feeding guide upon signup, and you can change how often you’d like Scratch sent to suit your mix feeding habits.

Puppies should get solid food starting at about four weeks, when they’re not able to get all the calories they need from their mother’s milk. Most puppies are weaned by six weeks.

Good question. It depends on their age, breed & expected adult size. A Saint Bernard is a puppy for a lot longer than a Chihuahua for instance.

The food they’re eating also changes things as different foods produce different energy. Scratch feeding plans are tailored to the recipe that they’re eating (which you can also switch up if they’re fussy and seek variety).

When you get started with Scratch, we’ll ask some questions and calculate a feeding guide for your puppy based on this information.

As they grow, you can update their weight via your pups plan webpage for their instantly updated feeding guide. You can see our suggested feeding guide prior to signing up if you’re curious.
