Performatrin ® Puppy Small Breed Formula Dog Food
Puppies have varied nutritional needs, depending on their expected mature weight. Small breed puppies, including those of mixed ancestry, have different daily energy and nutrient requirements, as well as growth patterns, than their larger cousins. Their growth phase is much shorter and weight gain, between birth and full maturity, is much less than a large breed puppy. Small breed puppies’ dietary needs are also affected by their higher metabolic rate and proportionally longer digestive tract than the large breeds. Now you can feed your puppy an advanced super-premium diet, designed especially with your small breed’s size and specific needs in mind.

Formulated with the right balance of nutrients to support a long and controlled growth period, to help your small breed puppy reach his full potential.
Cognitive Ability Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), an Omega-3 fatty acid found in fish oil is added to help support early brain development and learning ability.
Cardio Care Supplemented with Taurine, an important amino acid-like compound for healthy heart development in growing puppies.
Healthy Skin & Coat Includes a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids such as flaxseed, which helps ensure an optimal 6 to 3 Omega ratio to support soft, healthy skin and a shiny coat.
Digestion A blend of Prebiotics, including Chicory Root Extract, helps support the digestive tract.
Healthy Living Added antioxidants, including Vitamins C and E, combined with Omega-3 fatty acids promote overall health by supporting immune health. Also includes a chelated form of key trace minerals to help their overall absorption and maintain your puppy’s well-being.
