Simba is 3months old now and m feeding him "royal canin Labrador retriver junior" dog food.
I feed him 3 times a day
1st meal: 8am,250ml of milk and a boiled egg
2nd meal: 1pm,A big bowl of dog food
3rd meal: 9pm,A big bowl of dog food
Is that sufficient for a puppy for its healthy growth or do i need to include any other nutritious food to that?
The types of dog food available here are Royal canin,Pedigree,Drools(as of my knowledge as i dint find any other brands in my town).So which one of these should i go on with?
Thanks in advance
Milk can cause diarrhea. Give him a little plain yogurt instead. I never heard of feeding puppies boiled eggs before, so I don't know...also, I am not sure what you mean by "big bowl"....I give my 11 week old about 3/4 cup 3 to 4 times a day. She also gets cheese for training treats. I still put hot water on her puppy formula dry food.
I had been feeding him milk along with the puppy food from the time i brought him....he never seemed to have any digestion problem though.
A 'big bowl' maybe measuring equal to that of 2 cups(approximately)..even i soak his food in water before feeding him.
What did u mean by 'yogurt'?..is it something like curd!
Yogurt has good digestive enzymes in it. it is dairy based, and is a base in many Greek sauces....not sure how else to describe it. Personally, I would split the kibble up between all three meals, adjusting the amounts according to your pups weight. I don't think the egg hurts anything, but do not include the shell at this point (too much calcium perhaps). The milk is not necessary either. I feed raw, but as far as kibbles go, a good kibble should have meat (of some sort....chicken, turkey etc. Or meat meal as the first two or three ingredients. There are A LOT of VERY STRONG opinions on what is a good kibble. Basically it comes down to whatever works for your dog.

I feed Royal Canine and usually feed the recommnded feed on the packaging as a start, then lower or increase if needed. My brother has always feed milk with half water and no problems, but no something I do.
I am sure that you don't have tremendous variety in dog food where you live. I would stick with what you are feeding and stop giving milk at all. It is not appropriate food for a dog.
Feed the kibble at all 3 meals.
