Question / Answer
What does “All Life Stages” mean?
In order for a food to be classified for “all life stages”, it must pass a certain protocol used by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) to determine if the food has the nutrient content necessary to fully support four stages of life. These are gestation, lactation, growth, and maintenance. A food with this classification may be used for a pet in any of these life stages so long as the correct amount is fed. However, certain specific life stage foods may be more appropriate in meeting the nutritional needs of puppies, large breed dogs, small breed dogs, and those needing to control or lose weight. For these specific needs, we highly recommend using Fromm Puppy Gold, Large Breed Puppy Gold, Large Breed Adult Gold, Small Breed Adult Gold, and Weight Management Gold.Back Email Us
