German Shepherds are well-known for their intelligence and athleticism. With targeted nutrients, GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT helps to support skin, joints and muscles, while the customized kibble has an increased surface area to increase digestibility. GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT is designed exclusively for purebred German Shepherds over 15 months.
EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE DESIGN: The kibble’s shape, size, texture and formula are adapted to the German Shepherd, encouraging him to chew.
DIGESTIVE PERFORMANCE: A longer colonic transit time combined with large breed dogs’ higher colonic permeability can lead to more fermentation and poor stool quality. GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT contributes to supporting this breed’s sensitive digestive system with highly digestible L.I.P.* proteins and a selection of specific fibers to limit intestinal fermentation and to help maintain a balanced intestinal flora. *Protein selected for its very high digestibility.
HEALTHY SKIN & COAT: The skin and coat reflect the dog’s state of health, and appropriate nutrition plays an important part in maintaining their quality. The GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT formula helps support the skin’s role as a barrier with an exclusive complex of nutrients and helps maintain skin and coat health (EPA and DHA).
BONE & JOINT HEALTH: The lively temperament of the German Shepherd leads to hard working joints. The GERMAN SHEPHERD ADULT formula helps support healthy bones and joints and helps maintain ideal weight. Enriched with EPA and DHA.

We recommend at least a 7 day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet’s digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.
