GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY supports optimal development of the immune system, bones and joints, skin and coat, and gastrointestinal system, while the customized kibble has an increased surface area to improve digestibility. GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY is designed exclusively for purebred German Shepherd puppies from 8 weeks to 15 months old.
EXCLUSIVE KIBBLE: The kibble’s shape, size, texture and formula are adapted to the German Shepherd puppy, encouraging him to chew.
IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPPORT: As your puppy grows, he will experience big changes and new discoveries. During this key period, the puppy’s immune system develops gradually. GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY helps support your puppy’s natural defenses with an exclusive complex of antioxidants including vitamin E.
DIGESTIVE PERFORMANCE: GERMAN SHEPHERD PUPPY supports 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.
BONE & JOINT HEALTH: Balanced energy intake and precise mineral content (calcium and phosphorus) contribute to the development of strong bones and healthy joints in German Shepherd puppies. This exclusive diet also helps maintain ideal weight.

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.
