PITTSBURGH — On Nov. 20, Bully Max introduced its latest pet food innovation: 24/14 High Protein & Growth Puppy Food. The premium formula is specifically designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of growing puppies.

In order to develop into healthy adult dogs, puppies need more nutrients from their food that standard dog food fails to provide, according to Bully Max. The new puppy food is formulated with real protein including lamb and pork as the primary proteins, essential vitamins and nutrients including vitamin A, B12, C, D, E and K, and Diamond V’s TruMune®.

According to Bully Max, TruMune makes the puppy formula a standout compared to others on the market. TruMune is a clinically tested prebiotic specifically made to support gut and digestive health, as well as immune function. The prebiotic is scientifically backed by more than 425 controlled research studies and 120 peer-reviewed publications, and has been shown to increase a dog’s energy levels by 15%.

The formula is free from artificial colors, flavors and byproducts, as well as corn and soy.

In addition to being formulated with science-backed ingredients, Bully Max’s 24/14 High Protein & Growth Puppy Food is slow cooked to preserve nutrients and provide maximum nutritional value. According to Bully Max, by cooking the food at low temperatures, it retains 90% of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, compared a 60% nutrient loss when cooked at higher temperatures.

“We believe that puppies deserve the best start in life, and that's why we’ve created this exceptional puppy food formula,” said Lea Kinneman, co-owner at Bully Max. “With the inclusion of TruMune® for gut health and our commitment to slow cooking for nutrient preservation, we are confident that Bully Max Puppy Food will help your puppy grow up healthy and happy.”

Bully Max 24/14 High Protein & Growth Puppy Food is available for purchase via the company’s website.
