Meat and Soybean Meal

Meat (either chicken or pork) and soybean meal build muscles in your puppy as he grows. They are also a good source of protein and amino acids to help with his digestion.

Eggs

Also high in protein and amino acids, eggs aid in your puppy's digestion and help build lean muscles. Eggs also contribute to a shiny and healthy coat for your puppy.

Wholesome Grains

To provide your puppy with the carbohydrates and fiber he needs, the Science Diet puppy food includes whole wheat, brown rice, oats and barley.

Fruits and Vegetables

Cranberries, apples, broccoli, carrots and peas provide essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to help your puppy's immune system.

Flaxseed

Flaxseed lends to a shiny and healthy coat by providing natural Omega-3 fatty acids, essential fatty acids and Vitamin E.

Fish and Soybean Oil

Fish oil is a good source for Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as EPA and DHA, which promote healthy bones. Soybean oil is high in essential fatty acids and helps your dog have soft skin and a healthy coat.

Other Ingredients

Additional vitamins and spices in Science Diet puppy food make it more nutritious and tasteful.
