PUPPY

less than 1 year

Puppies

Puppies go through huge changes during their growth and development phases – growing up is hard work! With a whole world to discover, puppies have a great need for energy and protein to grow new cells, along with balanced mineral levels to encourage healthy growth. Healthy doses of Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are proven to benefit brain and eye development, while plenty of antioxidants support growing immune systems. Tender young tummies need easily digestible food that’s tasty enough to encourage weaning.

ADULT

1-6 years

Adult dog

Adult dogs’ needs can be summed up in one word: “Maintenance”. Maintaining great health throughout the years of adulthood can be a finicky business, but with the right balance of minerals, energy content and easy-to-digest prebiotic fibres dogs can keep their organs and muscles healthy throughout adulthood, preserving great health for the future. Holding on to great health is important for later life, as well as for preventing illness.

NEUTERED DOG

1+ years

Neutered dog

Neutered dogs need fewer calories to maintain healthy body weight, and may gain weight easier than their intact counterparts. Over time, excess body weight can contribute to other conditions, such as mobility issues. This means it's vital to keep dogs fit and trim in the years following neutering. Maintain healthy weight and provide the building blocks of healthy joints – glucosamine & chondroitin – to stave off future problems. Prebiotic fibres help keep dogs’ digestive systems on track, while effective antioxidant levels strengthen natural defences for great long-term health!

Mature Adult

Mature Adult dogs need just the right balance of nutrition to keep healthy during their golden years. Staying active and fit – and young at heart! – requires healthy bones and organs, strong immunity, healthy teeth, and more. Feeling great means feeling younger and avoiding conditions which can lead to disease.
