Eclipse Dog & Puppy is the ultimate diet for puppies, bitches in whelp and dogs requiring the very best in nutrition.
MASTERS ECLIPSE DOG & PUPPY is specially formulated for puppies, from 3-4 weeks to 6-9 months, and whelping bitches. It provides a high quality, concentrated and balanced diet that supplies all the nutrients needed to keep your dog in peak condition at this important time. The nutritional value and ease of digestibility makes it ideal for puppies and bitches in whelp, and does not require the addition of any meat or biscuits.
ECLIPSE DOG & PUPPY should be fed to the bitch from 2-3 weeks prior to whelping, which will ensure production of sufficient milk to satisfy the forthcoming litter without sacrificing the mother’s overall condition. By feeding the bitch the same product that the puppies will be weaned onto, the puppies will be receiving the same nutrients through the milk that they will receive once weaning commences. This helps to prevent any setback at weaning.
ECLIPSE DOG & PUPPY is rich in top quality chicken and rice, and contains many other nutritious ingredients such as dried eggs. It is also wheat gluten free, which makes it suitable for dogs that suffer from certain allergies. Linseed is added as a natural conditioner to give your dog a beautiful glossy coat and supply Omega 3 & Omega 6 essential fatty acids.

When the puppies are born, adequate food should be given to ensure the production of sufficient milk to satisfy the litter without sacrificing the bitch’s overall condition. By feeding the bitch the same product that the puppies will be weaned onto, the puppies will be receiving the same nutrients through the milk that they will receive once weaning commences. This helps to prevent any setback at weaning. Continue feeding ECLIPSE DOG & PUPPY for at least 8 weeks after the birth.

Add warm water and feed immediately. Alternatively, DOG & PUPPY may be fed either soaked or dry.
Drinking water should always be available.
Weaning can commence at 3½ – 4 weeks of age. Eclipse Dog & Puppy should be thoroughly soaked in sufficient warm water to ensure the pellets are softened completely. A good tip is to put the next meal in to soak each time you feed your puppies. At feed time, simply drain off any excess water, mash the softened food and add a little more warm water to give it the consistency of porridge.
After approximately 7-14 days, start adding a few dry pellets on top of the bowl of food to encourage chewing. Initially, feed 4 times a day and discard any food not consumed within 30 minutes.
Change to ECLIPSE ACTIVE & GROWTH when the puppies are 6-9 months old.
