Healthy Weight, Small Breed – Turkey, Chicken & Herring Formula
Controlling caloric intake is the key to managing your dog’s weight. Nutrience Natural Healthy Weight is formulated to help keep her trim by offering an optimal balance of proteins, fats and carbohydrates:
Rich in Animal Protein:
Multiple sources of animal ingredients provide protein and essential amino acids for overall health & growth.
Low glycemic carbohydrates, such as steel cut oats, lentils and sweet potatoes, may lower the risk of diabetes and help prevent obesity.
Coconut Oil & Botanicals:
A special botanical blend and coconut oil are used for their ability to provide multiple health benefits. In particular, green tea extract boosts metabolism, may help burn fat, and protect against heart disease, while L-carintine also plays a vital role in helping maintain a healthy body weight.
Wholesome Fruits & Vegetables:
Whole fruits and vegetables contain rich antioxidant and phytonutrient properties.
Marine Source Omega-3:
Salmon oil and coldwater Atlantic herring are used as the primary sources of DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids, to contribute to a healthy skin and coat.
Powerful prebiotics & probiotics provide a greater absorption of nutrients and promote digestion, while glucosamine & chondroitin are incorporated to maintain joint health.
Moderate Fat Levels:
You’ll find all of the same healthy fats of our other adult formulas, but at moderated levels to help keep your dog trim. With an overall lower calorie count, your dog will benefit from a full, satisfying meal while enjoying the benefits of a reduced-calorie diet.
