Manufacturer's product description

" ESSENTIAL the BEGINNING is our special food for pup- pies & juniors, who as adults will weigh up to a maximum of 15 kg. As you can and should always expect from us, only top-quality ingredients are used. The BEGINNING is GRAIN-FREE and follows our BOF principle. Important! Puppies that will weigh more than 15 kg as adults must begin on the BEGINNING LARGE BREED from 8 weeks of age.

FOR BREEDERS:

For all puppies from about 3 weeks of age. Soak the meals in boiled, slightly cooled water to make porridge, and introduce gradually. Serve the BEGINNING to the bitch until the pups are 6-8 weeks. Can also be served be- fore giving birth for extra energy/strength. "
