Chicken is the main ingredient in this formula which is a rich source of protein that helps build muscle mass and provides essential nutrients like amino acids to maintain healthy organs. It fuels the dog with energy and boosts metabolism. Chicken fat is loaded with omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids that keep the skin and coat healthy. Cranberries are antioxidants that not only help support the immune system but also help fight against bacteria and prevent ailments like cancer. It is good for oral health as it helps plaque buildup and reduces tartar. It also controls stress levels of hyper dogs. Peas, carrots and brown rice are a source of fiber that aid digestion.
