We designed this chicken large kibble dog food with grain specially for large breed dogs. Larger breeds tend to have a slower metabolism and need to maintain lean body mass. They don't need as many calories (per kilo of body weight) or as much fat from their food. Large breeds require additional minerals to support bone development and extra supplements such as glucosamine and chondroitin.
The addition of Biotin is for the maintenance of healthy skin, coat and nails. This fish-free dog food also contains no corn; it is also wheat and legume-free, so no lentils or peas. And no potatoes. It has been developed as a large breed sensitive stomach dog food. It is also perfect for dogs without sensitivities. See our testimonials.
Many people look for a limited ingredient dog food with grain, so we have included rice instead of potato. Rice is an easily digestible carbohydrate and low in fat which is ideal for large breeds. When looking for a large breed dog food suitable for sensitive skin and stomachs, this could be the perfect recipe. Large dog breeds also need extra calcium which you will find in rice, plus minerals such as niacin, iron and thiamine.
A limited ingredient chicken-only working dog food means there are no other proteins within this recipe. Chicken is a fine source of protein and helps fight against bone loss. It is also low in fat and also contributes to the growth and development of muscles. Being low in fat, it aids in maintaining healthy body weight, which is just what large breed dogs require. Bigger dog breeds also require good sources of phosphorus which is found in chicken. Chicken is also abundant in selenium which helps in metabolic performance as does the vitamin B6 it contains. The vitamin A in chicken is important for maintaining healthy eyesight. As you might have guessed, chicken is an excellent option for large breed working dogs.
Biotin is an essential ingredient for the maintenance of healthy skin, nails and a glossy coat. Biotin for dogs is a water-soluble vitamin, also called vitamin H. Your large breed dog cannot make this vitamin on their own and yet it is one of the most important nutrients for your dog. It is essential in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM
This recipe also contains glucosamine and chondroitin. Many people have to buy these supplements in addition to the food because some large breed dog foods don't contain them. They are considered useful in maintaining healthy joints in large breeds. Our nutritionists have also included natural MSM for dogs in this recipe. MSM helps to improve the efficiency of glucosamine and chondroitin. It is a natural antioxidant and can be found in the hair, skin, nails and joints of your dog. It can also help in the reduction of allergy symptoms.
Omega 3 and Omega 6
We've added the two essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6. The Omega 3 helps to support the development and function of the brain, nervous tissues and vision, as well as managing inflammation, especially in the skin and joints. Omega 6 is needed for immunity, skin and coat health, as well as growth and reproduction.
It is also a G.I. friendly dog food for digestive health and an excellent hypoallergenic dog food for skin allergies and the maintenance of a healthy coat and skin. No artificial ingredients or preservatives have been added to this chicken and rice recipe.
This ingredient is rich in many B vitamins, including B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7 and B9. It is also high in antioxidants which is why many people include it in their diet too. Its just as good for dogs as it is for humans! These vitamins are good for eyes, skin, coat, liver function, and are known for reducing anxiety. It doesn't just stop there, it contains lots of minerals needed for a variety of cell and organ function such as selenium, iron, potassium, iron, zinc and magnesium. Many people include brewers yeast in their dogs food because it is also well known to repel fleas and ticks. The benefits of nutritional yeast for dogs is amazing. You can't go wrong!
