A complete dog diet for the medium breed bitch (from 11 to 25 kg) and her puppies: bitch at the end of gestation and during lactation - Weaning puppies up to 2 months of age. Inspired by Professional research, BIRTH PROGRAMME is a unique nutritional solution which meets the needs of the bitch and her puppies during the first five stages of life cycle: gestation, birth, lactation, weaning, and growth up to 2 months old. The fruit of ongoing science from Royal Canin, START COMPLEX is an exclusive combination of nutritional elements which are present in mother’s milk, reinforced with specific nutrients which actively contribute to promoting digestive health and supporting the puppy’s natural defences. A nutritional profile which is adapted to the bitch’s high energy needs at end the of gestation and during lactation. A nutritional response which facilitates the transition from mother’s milk to solid food (energy value, quality protein, fats). The kibbles easily rehydrate to a porridge-like consistency which is very palatable for the bitch and her weaning puppies.
