Puppies need higher nutrition and calorie content for activity and growth.
Puppies have nutritional needs quite different from adult dogs (puppies defined as under 12 months for small breeds, 14-16 months for medium-sized breeds and 16 months for larger breeds). For instance, a newly weaned puppy might need twice the calories of an adults, this proportion decreasing as it grows.
Puppies also require more protein, fat, vitamins and minerals to fuel healthy growth. Chuck & Don's carries a wide variety of food and supplements from which you can tailor a diet perfect for your growing puppy.

Food digestibility and activity become key considerations for senior dogs.
Like puppies, senior dogs have their own distinct dietary requirements. Decreased calories are needed if they are less active. Encouraging activity is vital, as a sedentary lifestyle will cause the loss of muscle tone and joint mobility. Arthritis is a common ailment among older dogs, slowing them down further. Digestibility becomes a key issue with senior dog food.
We carry food and supplements to address common senior dog conditions like those noted above as well as diabetes, liver and kidney issues and allergies.

Optimal fat content for him is 10-15% At the other end of the spectrum are working dogs. A sled dog might need as much as 65% fat content in his diet, a herding dog 45-50%.
