A Pup Above recipes are formulated for adult dogs. For puppies, A Pup Above is a great topper option that makes even the pickiest of eaters lick their bowl clean. However, puppies should not be fed A Pup Above exclusively. Puppies need extra calcium and other essential vitamins and minerals to support their growth. Generally, once dogs are a year or older, they can transition fully to an adult food. The exception to this is giant breed dogs (>80 pounds) as they can take up to two years to reach full maturity.
