Q - What is the difference between Puppy and Adult food?
A - There are two main differences between Bob & Lush 60% Duck kibble for Puppies and Juniors and Bob & Lush 60% Duck Kibble for adult, one is the level of protein and the other is the size of the kibble. The puppy kibble has 28.5% protein and the adult kibble has 25%. The overall ingredients, recipe and taste of the foods are very similar. The puppy kibble is smaller so it is easier for a puppy to eat.
Q - How much should I feed my dog?
A - We have feeding guidelines on our website and on the packet. We also have a personal feeding plan calculator.
Q - The amount to feed a puppy is more than an adult dog, is this right?
A - Yes this is correct, puppies grow rapidly and because of this they require more calories and essential nutrients than adult dogs.
Q - What is the calorie content of your food?
A - Our Adult Premium Duck Kibble contains 355 calories per 100g. Our Puppy Premium Duck kibble is 386 calories per 100g. Our adult wet food pouches are 123 calories per 100g. Our puppy wet food pouches are also 123 calories per 100g.
Q - Can the wet and dry foods be served separately or must they be mixed?
A - Both our wet and dry food contain all the essential nutrients your dog needs so can be served separately. They are made so that they compliment each other perfectly and when they are mixed it adds extra variety and extra yummy flavours for your dogs to enjoy. If you're looking for healthy dog food, we have everything you need.
Q - Can you mix the wet and dry foods?
A - The wet and the dry food are made so that they can be mixed and compliment each other perfectly. A combination of wet and dry food can be ideal for fussy eaters as it adds an extra variety of textures and flavours
Q - My dog is very small, can I feed him/her puppy kibble, as the size is better suited.
A - There are two main differences between Bob & Lush 60% Duck kibble for Puppies and Juniors and Bob & Lush 60% Duck Kibble for adult, one is the level of protein and the other is the size of the kibble. The puppy kibble has 28.5% protein and the adult kibble has 25%. The overall ingredients, recipe and taste of the foods are very similar. The other main difference is that the kibble is roughly half the size so may be suited better to some small breed and toy breed dogs. There is no harm in feeding puppy kibble to your adult dog if it is easier for them to eat.
Q - Do you have any other flavours?
A - As a company that puts the health and wellbeing of dogs ahead of anything else we are very careful to ensure that we only use foods that are hypo- allergenic. We are looking to expand our range but every new product needs to be stringently tested before we put it on sale for our loyal customers to enjoy.
