Substantial bites for substantial puppies, but given the slower maturation of large breeds it isn't just the kibble which is special. It is really important to develop strong, healthy bones and joints and lean muscle to support them - so this recipe includes a carefully balanced ratio of calcium and phosphorus with added glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM to promote healthy joints along with L-carnitine which aids in burning fat and converting protein to muscle. Oh and the kibble is 1.5x bigger than our medium breed diet!
- 60% salmon (including 38% freshly prepared) providing lean protein and omega 3s including EPA and DHA to help joint, eye and brain formation
- Joint care package (glucosamine, chondroitin & MSM) and L-carnitine (a provitamin which helps burn fat and preserve lean muscle)
- Vegetables including sweet potato and carrot which provide dietary fibre and vitamins
- Large kibble providing crunch and sensory stimulation

Any new food should be introduced gradually, we suggest mixing 80% old:20% new and increasing the proportion of new food every 1-2 days until your pet is fully accepting the new diet. It can be helpful to moisten kibble with cool to lukewarm water to soften it and help wean puppies to dry food.
Puppies should ideally be fed 4x per day to begin with, moving to 3x per day as they grow (4-6m) and finally to 2x per day as they approach adulthood. Always remember that while treats are a nice reward, they contain calories so reduce the amount of kibble given accordingly and please ensure the total intake is balanced for a growing puppy's needs.
Available in 2kg and 12kg compostable paper bags.
Large Breeds are defined as dogs expected to weigh greater than 25kg at ideal adult weight. These puppies are likely to reach skeletal maturity at 18 months so should be fed puppy food until that age.
