Benefits
TAILOR-MADE KIBBLE DESIGN FOR THE GERMAN SHEPHERD
Kibble is designed in the shape of an “X” which has a high surface area to increase digestibility for the German Shepherd's sensitive digestive tract.

DIGESTIVE PERFORMANCE
A longer colonic transit time, plus increased colonic permeability in large breed dogs can lead to more fermentation and poor stool quality. GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT contributes to supporting this breed's sensitive digestive system with highly digestible proteins (LIPs*), prebiotic support (MOS**) and a specific fibre blend to limit intestinal fermentation and to help maintain a balanced intestinal flora.

HEALTHY SKIN & COAT
The German Shepherd has alkaline skin which increases the risk of skin infections and a thick, double coat. Targeted nutrition is important for maintaining a healthy skin and coat. The GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT formula helps strengthen the skin barrier and supports skin regeneration with an exclusive complex of nutrients including PINCH, omega 3s (EPA and DHA), omega 6s, vitamin A, biotin, and high quality protein.

BONE & JOINT HEALTH
The German Shepherd is susceptible to hip dysplasia, and can have an active lifestyle that leads to hard working joints. The GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT formula nutritionally supports the German Shepherd’s bones and joints with an appropriate mineral balance (calcium and phosphorus), glucosamine, chondroitin and omega 3s (EPA and DHA) to supply the building blocks for joint regeneration and help reduce inflammation.
