Why it’s Great for Your Dog
We created CANIDAE® Life Stages Large Breed Adult Duck Meal, Brown Rice & Lentils formula especially for big dogs with big appetites. Duck meal has high levels of omega 3 fatty acids, which play an important role in reducing inflammation within joints—an important benefit for large breed dogs. Lentils help satisfy big appetites and are a satisfying source of sustained energy. And lower fat and protein levels help large breed dogs achieve and maintain optimal weight.
What Goes Into It
In this formula we include natural duck meal and other healthy ingredients like peas, papaya, and sage. Wholesome nutritional brown rice, along with other diversified carbohydrates like lentils, keep your large breed dog full all day and are highly digestible. You’ll also find high levels of glucosamine and chondroitin for healthy bones and joints, appropriate calcium and phosphorus levels for healthy growth, and omega 3 fatty acids to ward off joint paint and keep coats beautiful. The ingredients in this recipe come together to provide balanced nutrition and a great taste your dog will love!
