Nutro Wholesome Essentials Large Breed Puppy Food - Chicken, Brown Rice & Sweet Potato Formula is great for large breed puppies during this time of rapid growth and development. The formula contains glucosamine and chondroitin, which are crucial in the development of strong, healthy joints and cartilage in larger dogs. The protein found in the delicious, farm-raised chicken aids in muscle development and in maintaining the metabolic rate that they need to compliment their energy level. Whole grains, such as brown rice are included to help your puppy absorb all of the essential nutrients and to make the food easier to digest, which is great for dogs with sensitive stomachs!
Nutro Wholesome Essentials does not use artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives, which makes it a safe, natural choice for your puppy. In addition, the Chicken, Whole Brown Rice & Sweet Potato Formula contains omega-6 fatty acid, B vitamins, and zinc, which make the coat healthier and provide extra moisture for more sensitive skin. To ensure quality nutrition, it does not contain corn-gluten, corn, wheat, or soy protein.
