Dogs are carnivores by nature and for that reason our products contain high levels of top quality animal proteins. These top quality proteins guarentee a healthier build , optimal growth and recovery of muscles, bones, coat,skin and various other tissues.
The Nutritional Balance products with the Chicken Based claim exclusively contain chicken and egg based animal proteins. As a result these products are particularly nutritious and also highly digestible. Furthermore the exclusive use of poultry protein considerably limits the likelihood of food allergies.
If your dog should prove to be hypersensitive to our Chicken based products we advice switching to our Hypo-Allergic products which are also mentioned later in this feed guide. Our Hypo-Allergic products contain only animal proteins from lamb or salmon combined with rice as a gluten-free grain.
Although you perhaps believe that your dog likes a varied diet it has already been scientifically proven that a dog’s digestive system functions better if it is always given the same feed. Indeed the best digestion is achieved when the dog is given the same feed daily. if you would like to change feed then it is best to spread the switch over a number of days. As a result your dog can gradually become used to the new feed and digestive problems can be avoided.
Buying a puppy is a fun but also a major event both in the puppy’s life and the life of the new owner. Now the puppy has been taken away from its mother, the owner becomes responsible for the puppy’s training and welfare. The growth period is the most important period in a dog’s life, it forms the basis for its future character and health. Naturally choosing the right feed plays an important role in this.
A major change is switching from liquid to solid food. Dry food with pellets specially adapted to the size of the teeth must ensure that the puppy can chew the pellets easily. Depending on the size of the breed and the puppy’s age, Nutritional Balance has developed 4 different pellets each with a unique form and size.
Of course in addition to an adapted size of the pellet, an appropriate composition of the chunk is important.Nutrients such as proteins , carbohydrates, fat , vitamins and minerals should be present in the right amounts and proportion. Nutritional Balance also provides a special feed with adapted energy content depending on the dog’s age and size of breed.
The Opti Growth concept was developed especially to insure your puppy’s optimal growth, in relation to its full grown size. As Nutritional Balance contains all the nutritional elements required in the right proportions it is not necessary to give vitamin or mineral supplements.
Some so-called “Lamb & Rice” products contain numberous other ingredients like chicken, beef, wheat or corn in addition to lamb and rice which mean they are not hypo-allergic at all. Such foods are not a solution for hypersensitive dogs due to the gluten containing grains and different types of animal proteins.
Versele-Laga Nutritional Balance foods, available here at catanddogfood.ie, exclusively use rice as a source of carbohydrate and lamb or salmon as the sole source of meat or fish protein. The combination of this gluten-free, easily digestible grain with one type of animal protein considerably reduces the likelihood of food allergies.
Some dogs are simply naturally more sensitive than others. Sometimes dogs have a slightly more sensitive digestive system, they do not digest some nutritional elements as well or have allergic reactions to certain proteins.
An appropriate feed plays an important role in solving and preventing all these problems. Your dog will be kept in top condition thanks to a balanced feed based on specially selected ingredients.
Vesele-Laga developed a “Sensitive hype-allergic range of feeds” especially for those dogs that are a little more sensitive. A diversity of high quality feeds based on lamb or salmon combined with rice and enriched with natural ingredients and nutraceuticals that promote your dog’s health, condition and immunity.
The new Nutritional Balance Sensitive range offers a specially adapted feed for any age, activity and size of breed.
