Young German Shepherds need a special food adapted to their nutritional needs in the sensitive growth period. Special attention needs to be paid to balanced growth, strengthening the natural defences, supporting healthy intestinal function and and protecting skin and coat. The German Shepherd is a noble dog with unsurpassed versatility.
Strong muscles, a highly developed chest, powerful movement, and last, but not least, a noble character make German Shepherds some of the best working dogs available: guide dog, rescue dog, police dog, or watch dog.
Royal Canin German Shepherd Puppy dry dog food was uniquely developed with the characteristics and requirements of young German Shepherds up to 15 months in mind:
- Optimal digestive security: Rice as a single source of plant carbohydrates, high-grade L.I.P. proteins (>90%) and soya bean oil all contribute to a healthy digestive system. Select, special fibre limit the fermentation process in the digestive tract while maintaining the balance of the intestinal flora.
- Strengthening the immune system and reducing oxidative stress: An anti-oxidant complex contributes to the strengthening of the immune system and slows cell ageing. Mannan-oligosaccharides stimulate a response from the immune system which raises the quantity of antibodies (immunoglobulin A, white blood cells)
- Skin protection and radiant fur: Royal Canin Breed German Shepherd Puppy dog food strengthens the barrier function of the skin and maintains the natural shine of your dog’s fur with a mixture of vitamins and amino acids
- Joint protection and balanced growth: The synergistic effect of chrondroitin sulphate and glucosamines protects the joints and retards the development of arthritis, inflammation, and oxidative damage with the help of Omega 3 Fatty Acids EPA and DHA
