Large breed puppies grow very rapidly during the first year of life, which if not properly controlled, can lead to problems with their bones and joints in later life. An optimal calcium and phosphorus ratio, coupled with a good source of glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate and MSM, encourages the growth of strong bones and soft tissue (tendons and muscles) to support them through their adult life.
A high meat content (minimum of 44% chicken) encourages lean muscle growth, and helps prevent subcutaneous fatty deposits.
CLINIVET Large Breed Puppy contains linseeds and fishmeal, both of which are excellent sources of Essential Fatty Acids. These EFA’s help brain function and development in your puppy, and can help with behaviour and training.
CLINIVET Large Breed Puppy is suitable food for large breed puppies with an adult weight of more than 45kg from weaning up to one year old, and for the pregnant and nursing bitch.

Clinivet is formulated without wheat, beef, lamb and soya products. These ingredients are known to be common allergens, and can contribute to conditions such as digestive upsets, dry, flaky and itchy skin, and a dull coat. By excluding these products from the diet, it is possible to reduce the occurrence of these allergic reactions.
Vitamins and minerals are essential to maintain health and growth and are involved in the metabolic reactions in the body. They are necessary for the development of strong bones and teeth, and in nerve and muscle action.
Protects - Protected Immunity
A strong immune system is vital in keeping the body strong and healthy. This important defence mechanism protects the body from unwanted pathogens, and cells from oxidative damage.
A healthy gut helps protect against indigestion and promote a healthy gut environment and can reduce the incidence of colitis and diarrhoea. The addition of fructo-oligosaccharides and mono-oligosaccharides to Clinivet boosts levels of friendly gut bacteria and limit the growth of less friendly bacteria.
A shiny coat and healthy skin are signs of a healthy body. A balanced Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio is thought to reduce the incidence of inflammatory responses, such as dry, itchy, flaky skin, arthritis, visual defects, cancer and infertility. Essential oils from fish and linseeds are excellent sources of these essential fatty acids and help support the coat and skin condition.
The bones and joints of dogs are placed under extreme stress and strain after intense exercise. This can cause the cells in the bones to breakdown, the cartilage to thin, and fragments to break off causing pain and swelling in the joint. Glucosamine sulphate, chondroitin sulphate and Methyl-Sulphonyl-Methane (MSM) are natural sugars which help preserve the joint integrity, and help aid conditions such as arthritis, by reducing pain and inflammation in the joint.
Taurine is thought to help protect against heart failure, and is essential for cardiovascular function, and the development of skeletal muscle and the central nervous system.
A diet with a high protein and high meat content helps to build strong muscles and encourage lean body growth. Especially suitable for very active dogs, who are getting plenty of exercise every day.
Muscles cramp when they contract (tighten) without you meaning to do so. This is more common when muscles are overused or injured, or when you have low levels of minerals and electrolytes in your body and can be very painful.
A strong skeleton is needed to provide support for the body. It helps protect all internal organs from damage and provide the structure for muscles to attach so that the body can move. A correct balance of pH and minerals help promote a strong skeleton and help aid a speedy repair, should the body become damaged.
