Dear Dog Enthusiast,
The Best Breed Countryside Recipe is a simple, natural formula that contains limited sources of protein, fat and carbohydrates.
The diet begins with chicken, its primary protein source that is highly digestible and has the essential amino acids needed to promote strong, lean muscle mass. Further, it contains wholesome grains and fats for maintaining optimum energy levels. High quality fats also provide an excellent balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids – both of which are required for maintaining a vibrant coat and healthy skin.
The diet is fortified with healthy ingredients, like vegetables and bacteria cultures (probiotics), to promote your best friend’s holistic health. The vegetables, including tomatoes, carrots and spinach, are all rich in the vitamins and minerals needed for a healthy immune system. And the diet’s sources of glucosamine naturally support joint and connective tissue health.
Lastly, like all of Best Breed’s diets, the Countryside Recipe is formulated without low-grade ingredients that are harder for your dog to digest. Some of these ingredients include animal by-product meal, cheap fillers, any sort of gluten (e.g., corn gluten), and artificial preservatives, flavors, and colors. Thank you for your interest and please do not hesitate to contact me with questions.
