Large Breed Robust Chicken with Rice

  • PRO PLAN® Puppy Large Breed Robust Chicken with Rice

    Throughout history, large breed dogs have been bred for either strength or speed, leading to two fundamentally different body types: Robust and Athletic.

    Recent research findings have shown that these two body types actually have very different characteristics affecting their nutritional needs, even during the growth period. For example, large breed robust dogs tend to have more body fat and benefit from a reduction in calorie intake to avoid weight gain. In contrast, large breed athletic dogs spend more energy in daily activities and thus need a higher energy diet. In fact large breed athletic dogs use up more energy even when resting than large breed robust dogs.

    Example of athletic and robust large breeds are:

    Athletic

    Robust

    Boxer Basset Hound
    Dalmatian Bernese Mountain Dog
    Doberman Pinscher Bloodhound
    German Shepherd Bullmastiff
    Great Dane Komondor
    Greyhound Mastiff
    Irish Wolfhound Newfoundland
    Pointer Retriever
    Setter Rottweiler
    Weimeraner Saint Bernard

     

    Complete pet food for large breed puppies with a robust physique (over 25kg at maturity).

    Product Information

    Puppy Large Robust is formulated to meet the specific nutritional requirements of larger puppies (>25 kg adult weight) with robust physiques from 2 to 24 months. Large robust breed puppies by nature tend to have a lower metabolism (they use less energy) compared to athletic large breeds. This specially adapted food supports the robust physique yet helps promote a lean body mass.

    • OPTISTART

      Formulated with Colostrum, rich in natural antibodies and found in mothers’ first milk, proven* to enhance immune response and help reinforce the protection his mother gave him. It also balances good and bad bacteria in the puppy’s gut to help him resist common puppy upsets

    • ROBUST PYSIQUE

      Contains a combination of L-Carnitine and appropriate levels of protein and fat to support a harmonious growth for healthy joint development, as robust physique puppies tend to gain excess weight more easily

    • BRAIN AND VISION

      Contains DHA, an Omega 3 fatty acid found naturally in mothers’ milk that is essential for better brain and vision development

  • Feeding during weaning and growth

    Puppies receive all of their nutritional needs from their mother for the first 3 weeks of their lives. During the next 3 to 6 weeks, start to offer moistened PRO PLAN® Puppy 3 or 4 times during the day. After weaning, feed the amount recommended. After 3 months of age gradually reduce the amount of water added. Maintaining a lean body condition during growth is important for
    healthy development.

    The recommended daily amounts should be adjusted up or down by 10 to 15% according to environmental conditions, activity level and physical condition
