Wholesome and natural nutrition recommended for adult Labrador Retrievers over 15 months of age.Muscle Toning & Weight Control: Reduce the calories while preserving the muscle tone of the Labrador Retriever adult. Labrador Retriever dogs are known for their natural tendency to put on weight. To prevent excess weight gain and return to an ideal weight, they need a low-calorie food that is still just as tasty. The food should be rich in proteins to enable the dog to lose weight while preserving muscle mass. The reduced fat content (13%) and high protein content (30%) help limit weight gain while maintaining muscle mass. L-carnitine, an amino acid found in meat protein, may play an active role in metabolization of fat reserves and may help to prevent additional weight gain. The high fiber content (oatmeal, rice, and barley) helps fight against the intestinal laziness that frequently occurs in less active dogs and gives them a feeling of fullness. Coat Health & Condition: Provide for the hair and protect the skin of the Labrador Retriever adult. Labrador Retriever dogs have a unique coat structure. They have strong, short, but very dense hair that protects their body from cold and water. A specially formulated food may help to protect the natural qualities of your dog's coat. Borage oil (from the borage herb) and fish oil, as sources of omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids are combined with biotin (a B vitamin), vitamin A, and zinc to help maintain a shiny coat and a skin in full health. Joint Maintenance: Help protect the joints of the Labrador Retriever adult. The Labrador Retriever dog's heavy build combined with their active temperament puts their joints under stress day after day. A food rich in the antioxidant vitamins E and C associated with natural sources of glucosamine and chondroitin help protect the joints. 100% Wholesome and Natural Nutrition Natural, wholesome ingredients like chicken, rice, and oatmeal have each been carefully selected for their superior nutrient values (protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, and minerals). Every Royal Canin diet is formulated to provide the optimal combination of these nutrients to provide the best possible nutrition and exceptional palatability.
