|Comprising a selection of the finest freshly prepared ingredients from nutritious and highly digestible animal protein sources, Pet Connection's Grain Free Adult Dog Food with Chicken, Sweet Potato & Herbs is ideal for adult dogs of all sizes, with a crunchy kibble texture and an optimal kibble size and shape for adult dogs to savour.
The veterinary approved formula is natural, complete and balanced, ideal for dogs with sensitive stomachs and those requiring a hypoallergenic diet.
Formulated with sweet potato, a complex carbohydrate rich in B vitamins, and potato, rather than the grains typically found in dog foods, the food is perfect for dogs who suffer from sensitivities or allergies to grains such as wheat.
Each 12kg bag contains 9.1kg of chicken, meaning that the percentage of animal protein relative to the total protein contained is a high 84%.
Responsibly sourced and highly digestible, Chicken is the key protein source contained within the food, ensuring a reliable source of essential amino acids, B vitamins and Iron. Herbs are included for their essential vitamins and beneficial plant compounds, including natural antioxidants. Omega 3 is added to boost cognitive and visual development as an excellent source of EPA and DHA. Naturally preserved using rosemary extract, the food is free from artificial colours and preservatives.
Symptoms of food allergies and intolerances in dogs can encompass anything from chronic ear infections, gastrointestinal issues and chronic diarrhoea to constant licking of the feet, tear stains, chronic gas and itching. Acute symptoms should always be seen by a veterinary professional to ensure they can be treated appropriately. Some vets will recommend allergy testing, others will recommend an exclusion diet, during which the dog should be trialled on multiple different diets, including wheat gluten free, grain free, chicken free, etc. in an attempt to discover the trigger. While medication may be administered to treat the symptoms of an allergy, it is important to discover the root cause to prevent ongoing suffering caused by exposure to the allergen.
Extremely palatable due to the high meat content, this food is often used as low to medium value training treats by owners keen to improve the behaviour of their dogs. The kibble size is ideal for use in treat dispensing toys such as Trixie Dog Activity Snack Balls. For dogs with sensitivities, intolerances and allergies, it is important to ensure that any treats used do not contain the trigger food. Ideal treats for these dogs may include natural chews from the Anco Naturals range, such as those containing novel proteins like Hairy Deer Ears and Rabbit Hide Rolls, and smaller high value training treats such as Pet Munchies Chicken Training Treats.
