Why it’s Great for Your Dog
We created CANIDAE® Life Stages Large Breed Puppy Duck Meal, Brown Rice & Lentils formula especially for pups with big appetites and lots of growing to do. Duck meal has high levels of omega 3 fatty acids, which play an important role in reducing inflammation within joints—an important benefit for growing large breed pups. Lentils help satisfy big appetites and are a satisfying source of sustained energy. And lower fat and protein levels help large breed puppies achieve and maintain optimal weight.

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 puppy full all day and are highly digestible. You’ll also find 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!
