This recipe uses authentic chicken meal as the first ingredient and provides optimal levels of omega fatty acids to promote healthy skin and coat. In addition, L-carnitine helps your dog burn fat more effectively while maintaining lean muscle mass.
Large Breed Puppy Chicken Meal & Brown Rice Formula
This Large Breed Puppy Chicken Meal and brown Rice formula were scientifically created to meet the dietary needs of growing puppies, who require twice as many nutrients as adult dogs to build muscles, organs, and bones. This recipe provides an optimal combination of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, DHA levels, and antioxidants such as apples, blueberries, carrots, and spinach for energy, as well as high concentrations of antioxidant-rich vitamins A & C to support brain development as well as joint health via glucosamine and chondroitin content in common foods for improved combined health benefits.
This puppy formula is proudly produced in the US with natural ingredients and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Deboned chicken and chicken meal provide excellent proteins while pearled barley, peas, oat groats and brown rice supply carbohydrates for this food, along with extra healthful supplements like glucosamine/chondroitin/salmon oil/probiotics/omega fatty acid sources like fish meal/menhaden oil provide probiotics/omega fatty acids to round out this food’s nutritional density: 25% protein/14% fat/4.5% fiber with 377kcal per cup! Recommended for moderately active large breed puppies, this food provides 25% protein/14% fat/4.5% fiber with 377kcal per cup!
Chicken, turkey meat, and whitefish meal provide protein sources in this food, supplemented by brown rice, pearled barley, and oat groats as carbohydrate sources. Chicken fat is rich in omega-6 fatty acid preservation by mixing tocopherols; beet pulp for its high fiber content as well as improvements to gastrointestinal health from processing; as well as iron, niacin, vitamin A calcium pantothenate riboflavin thiamin hydrochloride vitamin B12, folic acid, and copper content make this food highly nutritionally dense!
Large Breed Puppy Chicken & Brown Rice Formula
For puppies, this formula provides a complete diet with an ideal ratio of protein to fat and carbs and the addition of glucosamine and chondroitin to support joint health and development. Furthermore, the food is free from by-products, corn, wheat, soy sugars, synthetic preservatives, and gluten sensitivity issues, making it a suitable option for sensitive dogs.
Chicken and chicken meal comprise most of the protein in this dish, with brown rice and barley as its primary carbohydrates. Peas and oats provide extra fiber, while vitamins and minerals such as beet pulp and chicory root also offer probiotic benefits. Other essential components include vitamin E, L-carnitine, and omega fatty acids for additional help.
Fat is an integral component of canine nutrition, providing cushioning around vital organs and aiding with feelings of fullness after meals. Furthermore, fat helps support immune system function and provide insulation against cold temperatures – this recipe uses chicken oil as its source.
This food offers balanced energy with 23% protein, 13% fat, and 5% fiber for moderate power. Chelated calcium promotes bone health, while DHA supports brain and vision development. Formulated for large breeds, precisely without by-products, gluten, grains, or soy. Also low in calcium/phosphorus, common issues among larger species.
While this food is high in protein and relatively low in fat and fiber content, brown rice is often hard for dogs to digest, and the seventh ingredient, pea starch, provides minimal nutritional benefit; its likely purpose in the recipe may be serving as binder material instead. In addition, sodium selenite – an unsustainable form of selenium – makes up over 40% of its content.
Large Breed Adult Chicken & Brown Rice Formula
This adult Ultimates dog food is similar to its puppy counterpart, with more protein. As with all large breed foods, this one aims to lower bloat risk in these large dogs – which is life-threatening – by using large-size kibble that encourages slower consumption of their meals to avoid swallowing excess gas. Furthermore, its formula contains joint health-promoting glucosamine, chondroitin, and prebiotics supporting digestion health.
Deboned chicken and chicken meal are the primary proteins in this food, free from glutens, grains, corn, wheat, and soy. With its high level of protein for large breeds, as well as brown rice, millet, cracked pearl barley, and oat groats as sources for additional nutrition, dried beet pulp (prebiotic fiber) and kelp are added nutrients. Chelated minerals (minerals chemically bound with proteins for easier absorption), vitamin E, L-carnitine, and probiotics are all features to consider as benefits – these benefits come together.
Lamb meal, a meat concentrate that provides more protein than fresh lamb, is the first ingredient of this recipe. Sweet potatoes and peas provide quality carbs. Finally, beet pulp may not be ideal in certain circumstances, but I see no harm done if consumed occasionally. Furthermore, this food also contains fruits and vegetables for nutritional enrichment and fish oil to provide omega fatty acids; suitable for all life stages with 27% protein, 13% fat, and 5% fiber per cup serving and 418kcal per cup calorie content per cup!
