This is a photographic monitoring of the weekly growth of puppies from birth to the 60th day to witness this wonderful period and above all, to underline the exceptional and delicate nature of the period of growth.
The photographic documentation highlights the speed of growth more effectively.
The four puppies protagonists, a female and three males weighed at birth on average 600 grams and after 60 days, you see them with their owners, their weight has reached an average of 9 kg
On average, the litters have an increase from the initial 35 grams per day up to over 100 grams of the fourth week of life to reach even 250 grams a day in the eighth week.
The maximum weight gain occurs in the first months of life and from birth to adulthood the weight of the cattle increases by 90-100 times.
This high rate of growth increases the risk of the onset of musculoskeletal pathologies, multifactorial diseases, of which hyperalimentation at a young age is one of the triggering causes.
In the period of bone growth, nutritional excess can in fact produce incorrect deviations from the limbs.
A balanced diet during growth is the first form of prevention against these diseases.
Even the movement in the first months of life should not be excessive and must above all be gradual. Subjecting the puppy to excessive efforts may result in muscle strains and adversely affect joint development.
WE ASK FOR NEW OWNERS TO PILL THE PUPPY ALL WEEKS AND TO COMMUNICATE THE WEIGHT, IN ORDER TO CUSTOMIZE THE DIET ACCORDING TO ITS METABOLISM AND LIFESTYLE
