This popular adult dry dog food has been formulated to be a low-fat dog kibble 13% less fat than other standard recipes. There are only eight simple ingredients which means it is ideal for even the most sensitive of dogs. It is perfect if you are looking for a hypoallergenic clean recipe. We have included turkey and rice because, as well as being lower in fat, it is also lower in purines and so are all the other ingredients. See the Benefits and our Testimonials!
Turkey is a rich source of B vitamins including B3 (niacin), B6 and B12. Niacin is an essential vitamin for energy production and cell communication. B6 is vital for neurotransmitters. B12 is crucial for DNA and the formation of red blood cells. Turkey is also high in folate and thiamine and riboflavin. It is packed with selenium, phosphorus and zinc, which are vital for bone health, hormones, metabolism, growth, protein synthesis, genes and enzyme reaction. There are so many benefits to eating turkey and, best of all, it is lean! Being low in fat means it would be easier to manage the weight of your dog. It is truly a great source of high-quality protein.
But what are Purines? Purines are nucleotide bases found in cells. They are an essential part of DNA and are important to a dog's life. Purines are broken down to produce uric acid. If your dog is not clearing uric acid levels properly, urinary-tract stones can form. Also, crystals can form in the joints, which can then cause inflammation and pain - a low-purine dry dog food may help reduce these issues.
This turkey and rice recipe has also been formulated to be a healthy low-fat dog kibble and can be used as a weight reduction or weight control dog food. Just make sure you follow the feeding guidelines and offer your dog plenty of exercise.
Rice is a healthy source of energy because it is low in fat, low in sodium and is a good source of vitamin D. It also contains thiamine, iron, calcium and niacin. Rice-based dog food helps improve bowel movements, as it contributes to the development of friendly gut bacteria. We have added white rice to this recipe because it is softer than brown rice, so it is easier to chew and simpler to digest than brown rice. It is an ideal kibble for sensitive stomachs.
We have added some seaweed to this recipe, a soluble fibre plant that contains one of the richest sources of minerals and amino acids. Seaweed is thought to enhance the immune system and to promote longevity in dogs. It can also help to reduce inflammation and itching. Seaweed contains calcium, potassium, boron, iron and vitamins A, B12, E and C. It is an altogether amazing ingredient!
You will also find as one of the eight ingredients some linseed also known as flaxseed. Linseed is filled with Omega oils! These oils will help to provide a healthy coat and a healthy immune system. As linseed contains natural fibre it can also be called a digestive health dog food.
I am sending some pictures so you can see how good my dogs now look on your food. Since my dog Zola was a pup we have had trouble with her food as she has a sensitive stomach, the vets recommended different types of food but they were very expensive. So I did some research and came across Nutrix Petfoods and decided to try as it had all the goodness in at half the price! Plus it was also suitable for dogs with sensitive stomachs. Well, all I can say is we tried it and Zola likes it and my other dog Freddy is now on it and when we take them to the vets we are always told what good condition they are now in. I do recommend anyone to try it.
Best wishes and thank you
