Large Breed Chicken And Brown Rice Recipe

Large Breed Chicken And Brown Rice Recipe

Canine Naturals Large Breed Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe uses chicken as our first ingredient. This ensures your dog will receive the key amino acids needed to maintain ideal weight, lean muscle mass and a shiny healthy coat with the great fresh poultry taste they love. In addition, you will never find filler ingredients like by-products, added glutens, corn, wheat or soy in our recipe so dogs get more nutrition per bite. Because large breeds dogs have additional weight and larger frames they tend to put more stress on their joints than smaller dogs. Because of this our Large Breed Natural Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe is fortified with glucosamine and chondroitin to help maintain healthy joints. We also use a reduced fat formula to help ensure your dog maintains their ideal weight to further reduce stress on bones and joints.
