Playful Puppy

Give your puppy the best start in life. To support brain development and give pup the ability to concentrate for longer and learn faster, Cherish Playful Puppy has a specific and unique blend of plant-based fatty acids and DHA derived from marine algae and deep-sea fish oils. When muscles and bones are rapidly developing, too much protein can do as much harm as too little. Our protein level is carefully balanced with calcium for safe muscle and skeletal growth. Rounding out the goodness is a trio of ancient grains to provide low GI energy to fuel puppy’s day.
