Nutro Puppy Large Breed Chicken, Whole Brown Rice & Oatmeal
CONTROLLED-GROWTH FORMULA® Puppy Food
Large and giant breeds are prone to rapid growth, which could lead to hip and joint problems. Our CONTROLLED-GROWTH FORMULA® puppy food provides a unique blend of key nutrients needed to help maintain healthy, balanced growth from weaning to maturity.
Natural Sources of Glucosamine and Chondroitin for Healthy Joints
Good nutrition is important to large and giant breeds for strong hips and healthy joints. Research shows that these two components found in chicken meal help maintain healthy joint cartilage.
Balanced Calcium-Phosphorus for Healthy Balanced Growth of the Skeletal System
Research shows that large breed puppies have a reduced requirement for calcium and phosphorus so this formula provides ideal calcium-phosphorus requirement.
Adjusted Protein and Fat Levels
Provides optimum protein and fat levels to help balance growth while providing plenty of protein for muscles, skin and coat. Excess weight can cause bone and joint problems for large breed puppies.
Real Chicken Protein
High quality real chicken protein for muscle development and body growth.
L-Carnitine to help utilize fat
L-Carnitine helps utilize fat for lean muscle growth.
Chelated Minerals for Added Health
Chelated minerals are more easily absorbed into your large breed puppy’s system. By providing chelated zinc, and other important minerals, this formula will help your dog stay healthy throughout its life.
Guaranteed to Improve Skin and Coat
With high levels or linoleic acid, combined with other key vitamins and minerals, all the nutrition your puppy needs for healthy skin and coat.
SMART START® Formula
SMART START® Formula featuring ALA and DHA helps puppies with learning, brain and vision development.
ALA (Alpha-Linolenic Acid)
Research shows that puppies naturally convert ALA (Alpha-Linolenic Acid) to DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) to help support better learning. Puppies want to look their best, so we supply fatty acids for a healthy, shiny coat.
Formulated with high levels of DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) from fish oil, a proven nutrient for brain development.
These are the recommended feeding ranges for puppies. These guidelines should be adjusted as needed to maintain optimum weight. If feeding NATURAL CHOICE® Dog Food for the first time, we suggest you blend increasing amounts of NATURAL CHOICE® Large Breed Puppy Dog Food with your old food for 6 days.
Puppy Age - Suggested Amounts to Feed Per Day (Cups)†
*Use a standard 8-oz. measuring cup. Moisten the food until the puppy no longer has sore gums and has sufficient teeth to chew the kibble. Then serve dry or lightly moistened. Feed puppies the suggested amount in three meals per day until six months old, then twice daily until fourteen months. Keep fresh drinking water available at all times. See your veterinarian regularly.
