Benefits
TAILOR-MADE KIBBLE DESIGN FOR THE GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY
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
In addition to the breed's digestive system being extremely sensitive, it is still developing and cannot absorb nutrients in the same way as an adult dog's. The highly digestible GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY formula promotes a balanced intestinal flora, and includes prebiotic support.

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.

NATURAL DEFENSES
During the growth period, the puppy's immune system is not yet fully developed. An exclusive complex of antioxidants (vitamins C and E, lutein and taurine) along with prebiotic MOS** in GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY helps support the German Shepherd puppy’s development of a strong immune system.
