That’s why we always use a purely scientific approach to create diets designed to cater to the specific needs of pets of all shapes, sizes, ages, lifestyles and breeds.

From the time they’re born until they’re well into their golden years, dogs’ nutritional needs are constantly changing, and we believe their food should, too. That’s why we offer a full line of products designed for dogs at every life stage.

German Shepherd

GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT is designed exclusively for pure breed German Shepherds over 15 months.

Did you know?

The German Shepherd has a notably fragile digestive system, which often leads to soft stools, frequent digestive upset and sometimes bloating. Unlike other breeds, the German Shepherd’s skin is extremely alkaline and very sensitive.

EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE

EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE

The German Shepherd has a long, strong muzzle with strong teeth. The size, shape and texture of the kibbles in GERMAN SHEPHERD formulas are designed to be easy for this breed to pick up and encourage him to chew.  

DIGESTIVE PERFORMANCE

A longer colonic transit time, plus a higher colonic permeability in large breed dogs, can lead to more fermentation and poor stool quality. GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT contributes to supporting this breed’s sensitive digestive system with highly digestible L.I.P. proteins and a selection of specific fibers to limit intestinal fermentation and to help maintain a balanced intestinal flora.

HEALTHY SKIN & COAT

The skin and coat reflect the dog’s state of health. Appropriate food plays an important part in maintaining the quality of the skin and coat. The GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT formula helps support the skin’s role as a barrier with an exclusive complex of nutrients and helps maintain skin and coat health (EPA and DHA).

BONE & JOINT SUPPORT

The lively temperament of the German Shepherd dogs leads to hard working joints. The GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT formula helps support healthy bones and joints and helps maintain ideal weight. E Available in 6 lb and 30 lb bags nriched with EPA and DHA.
