Puppy Nutrition

Puppy Nutrition

Puppy nutrition

Proper nutrition is another part of helping your puppy get the best start in life. Puppies need a balanced diet that includes all the essential nutrients for growth and development. Proper nutrition is vital for puppies because it helps them to grow strong bones and muscles and provides the energy necessary for play and learning.

There are many premium-grade commercial foods that meet the exact nutritional requirements of growing puppies. Although brands vary in quality, premium brands generally provide higher- quality ingredients. Therefore, we recommend you feed your puppy premium-grade puppy food.

Remember: Providing the proper nutrition for a new puppy will ensure they get the healthy start they need to grow into a happy and healthy adult dog. Talk to our veterinary team for advice on the appropriate nutrition for your puppy.


Maintaining a healthy weight for your puppy is extremely important for their overall health and well-being. Keeping your puppy at their ideal weight helps to keep their bones, joints, and muscles strong and healthy. In addition, keeping your puppy at their ideal weight can help reduce the risk of serious health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and types of cancer.

Monitor your puppy’s weight regularly and work with your veterinary healthcare team to make adjustments to ensure they stay at their ideal weight. By doing so, you can help your puppy stay healthy and happy.

Remember: A trip to the vet for a weight check can be a perfect opportunity to keep track of your puppy’s weight whilst also ensuring a positive vet experience with lots of treats and cuddles from our team.

I have been a patient of Yeronga Vet Clinic for over 20 years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. Dr Lisca and the team are second to none. Recently my 3 year old Labradoodle Daisy ruptured her cruciate ligament and underwent surgery. The professionalism and care Daisy received was top class. I would recommend Yeronga Vet Clinic to anyone looking for a great vet service for their fur baby.

We first came to Yeronga Veterinary Surgery nearly 4 years ago, carrying our tiny black Labrador puppy Delilah in, hoping to find some guidance and caring attention, and just a little bit of shared dog-madness. Well, we were in luck, and we have never looked back. The team at Yeronga Vet Surgery have been nothing short of exceptional at every step of our journey with them. From the basics of preventative care to important surgeries (and the odd mini-emergency thanks to our hungry labradors…) everyone has been both professional and welcoming, and more importantly, extremely good at their jobs! I am constantly blown away by the care and attention we receive, and the fact that our dogs cry with excitement when we pull into the street says it all. We’ve never had dogs who are so excited to visit the vet. We can’t recommend the team highly enough – they are exceptional.

Hi there puny human my name is Bastet. Here is a picture of me in all my glory to help your feeble human brain rest for a moment so I don’t pile on to much information at once. Ready? Nevermind let’s continue. Every few months my manservant deems it necessary to verify the divinity of close personal friend Zeus and myself, here is picture of us looking regal. I know you’re thinking “They are clearly perfect why would he waste their time.” and the answer is frankly he’s not very bright but means well so we indulge him. One thing we demand in return is that he takes us to the Yeronga Vet Surgery where we know we will be shown the respect and deference as befits ones such as us. So if you must interrupt the napping, playing or eating of your betters take them to Yeronga Vet Surgery.

Yeronga Vet have alway been wonderful in their professionalism and care over the years for those furrier members of the family, adding a healthy dose of genuine sympathy for those less routine difficult visits.
