Extra weight puts extra stress on a large frame, so it's important for your dog to feel satiated without consuming excess calories. With moderate fat, this recipe helps control energy intake allowing your dog to eat enough and still maintain a healthy weight every day. It is important for large breeds to easily digest and process food. We include live, naturally occurring microorganisms to support digestive health and we ensure optimal nutrient absorption through our Digestool confirmation studies, less nutrients in the stool, means more nutrients in the body. With greater size, there is more muscle to support and keep strong so we use 13% more protein than our Wellness Complete Health Adult Recipes. Carrying an average weight of 100 pounds is hard work. To help keep joints healthy, this recipe features our Wellflex system 750 mg/kg of glucosamine hydrochloride and 250 mg/kg of chondroitin sulfate. This bigger, rounder kibble is designed to promote proper chewing time in larger mouths. We also guarantee your dog will love the taste of each healthy, flavorful bite.

Transitioning to Wellness: It is important to slowly transition your dog from his/her current diet as it takes a few days for the body to adapt to the new nutrient levels. To transition, gradually mix in the new food over a 5 to 7 day period, increasing the amount of Wellness each day, so that you are feeding 100% Wellness by day 7.
