Earthborn Holistic® Puppy Vantage™ is specially formulated to meet the unique needs of growing puppies. It provides your puppy with essential amounts of DHA, premium proteins, wholesome carbohydrates and proper levels of calcium and phosphorus. This grain-free, gluten-free, potato-free formula will give your puppy optimal nutrition and energy for constant growth and play.
- Contains DHA, a type of long-chain Omega-3 fatty acid that is vital for healthy brain and eye development and function in puppies. DHA is present in concentrations in brain and retinal tissue.
- Formulated without grain, gluten or potato, this special formula is ideal as a high-protein, grain-free alternative diet for puppies.
Premium protein sources, such as chicken meal and whitefish meal, support the development of strong, lean muscles and provide necessary energy for growing puppies.
- Proper levels of calcium and phosphorous help ensure that your puppy will get the right mineral balance to build strong teeth and bones.
- Made with high-quality ingredients and processing technologies, Puppy Vantage™ provides excellent digestibility and nutrient absorption.
**Although the packaging states this formula is safe for large breed puppies 70 lbs and over, the staff at missionpetsupplies.com recommendation would be to feed this formula to Small- Medium breed puppies only. Large - Giant breeds should be fed a lower protein as not to overgrow the joints or cause unnecessary growing pains. Therefore, Earthborn Adult Vantage or Earthborn Ocean Fusion may be better solutions.

Earthborn Holistic® Puppy Vantage™ is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for growth, gestation and lactation, including growth of large size dogs (70 lbs. or more as an adult).
Taking care of your puppy’s overall health starts by feeding him properly.
- Puppies begin to eat solid foods at 3 to 4 weeks of age. They should have free access to solid food from that time until weaning. You may continue to keep Puppy Vantage™ before your puppy at all times. Most puppies will satisfy their nutritional needs as their appetites dictate.
- If you prefer controlled-portion feeding, we suggest you use the chart below as a guide and divide this amount into the desired daily portions.
- Allow your puppy 15 to 20 minutes to eat the portion and then remove the food. These amounts are averages; portions will vary depending on the breed and activity of your puppy.
- Puppy Vantage™ may be moistened with water if desired.
- To assure proper fetal development, milk production, and weight, feed gestating and lactating adult dogs two to three times as much food as recommended in the adult daily feeding guide for the weight of your adult dog.
- Amounts and averages will vary depending on the breed and activity of your dog.
- Have clean, fresh water available for your dog at all times.
