What Is The Best Puppy Food For Small to Medium Breed Puppies?

Slight in stature but considerable in spirit, small and medium breed pups are joyful bundles of energy. Smart and amusing, faithful and affectionate, they captivate us and we adore them. A solid nutritional foundation early on is vital to ensure that your pint-sized puppy enjoys life-long health. And providing a premium food formulated to meet their special needs is one of the most important decisions you will make in your companion’s life.

Life’s Abundance Premium Health Food For Small & Medium Breed Puppies contains a precise balance of proteins, fats and other nutrients to support a puppy’s high energy level and foster healthy development. The Ingredients in this food were carefully chosen for their individual nutrients, which work together to provide a comprehensive and perfectly balanced meal to help your puppy grow and thrive.

We cultivate long-term relationships with our suppliers to make sure we obtain the highest quality ingredients and we've made it our mission to provide companion animals with exactly what they need to help ensure a lifetime of good health.

Proprietary Blend of Vitamins and Minerals

Vitamins and minerals are essential for life and play hundreds of vital roles in the body including helping cells and organs function properly. That is why at Life’s Abundance, we use a special blend of vitamins and minerals and we go beyond the minimum requirements when it comes to adding these important micronutrients to our premium health food for small and medium breed puppies.

High-Quality Protein

Protein builds, maintains and replaces tissues in the body. Muscles, organs and the immune system are made primarily of protein. However, not all proteins are created equal. At Life’s Abundance, we use only high-quality proteins in our premium health foods. Chicken meal is the first ingredient but we’ve also included four additional wholesome and nutritious proteins.

An Antioxidant System

A puppy’s body is designed to create only a certain amount of antioxidants on its own. That is why we cannot over-emphasize the importance of antioxidants. Life’s Abundance Premium Health Food For Small & Medium Breed Puppies contains an antioxidant system including guaranteed amounts of vitamins C and E.

Prebiotic and Probiotics

Prebiotic fiber and guaranteed probiotics are featured ingredients in this formula. Prebiotics are considered “food” for probiotics. They help them thrive and stay healthy in the body. And while other brands may claim probiotic content, at Life’s Abundance there’s zero guesswork because we guarantee the amounts of four different probiotics on the label.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

The benefits of dietary fatty acids are well known, as omega-3s are some of the most extensively researched, naturally occurring nutritional ingredients in the world. The guaranteed amount of omega-3s is perfectly balanced with the omega-6 fatty acids in this formula to support healthy skin, shiny coats and overall wellness.

DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid)

This premium puppy health food is enriched with DHA, a vital nutrient derived from the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil. DHA promotes healthy eye and brain development, which is so important for growing puppies.

No Questionable Ingredients

We don’t use artificial flavors or colors. Additionally, we never use corn or wheat – or glutens derived from these sources – in Life’s Abundance foods, treats or supplements. These ingredients are generally used as inexpensive sources of protein, and the grains are susceptible to toxic mold contamination. We refuse to use these ingredients because there’s no excuse for risking the health of your puppy.
