Why Pure Breed Dogs Need Tailored Nutrition
From their personalities to their distinctive physiologies, pure breed dogs have unique characteristics that make them sought-after and beloved companions. When choosing a formula, it's important to keep in mind the unique characteristics of your breed including:
Face and Jaw: All dogs fall into two basic jaw types: Brachycephalic or mesocephalic. Breeds with short, broad muzzles (like Bulldogs) are examples of a brachycephalic jaw. Breeds with a longer muzzle (like Labrador Retrievers) are examples of mesocephalic breeds. The jaw type, and even biting patterns can affect how a breed picks up kibble.
Skin Types: The skin's most important function is to serve as a barrier of protection-but not all breeds have the same skin type. From wrinkled and folded (which traps heat and moisture) to sensitive or water resistant, precise levels of key nutrients help to support a breed's unique skin health needs.
Distinctive Coats: There's more to a coat than meets the eye. From the color and texture to undercoats, each pure breed dog has a unique coat with unique needs.
Breed Specific Formulas
Every dog is unique. From the small, flat-faced Pug to the obesity-prone Labrador Retriever, Royal Canin Breed Health Nutrition is tailor-made to address the unique needs of pure breed dogs. These breed specific formulas benefit from the latest Royal Canin research on the selection of the best protein sources, unique nutrients and tailor-made kibbles.
Formulated for Boxers
Royal Canin's Boxer Adult Dry Dog Food is designed exclusively for pure breed Boxers over 15 months.
Ideal muscle mass: Boxers are known to have powerful muscles. This formula helps maintain muscle mass with an appropriate protein content (24% min.) and L-carnitine.
Health cardiac function: Boxers are prone to cardiac sensitivity, so Boxer Adult Dry Dog Food contains specific nutrients including taurine, EPA and DHA to help support healthy cardiac function.
Antioxidant complex: This formula contains an exclusive antioxidant complex to help support cellular health.
Boxers have a short muzzle with a thick upper lip, and the teeth in their lower jaw are set in a straight line. The wave-shaped kibble of Boxer Adult Dry Dog Food is designed to make it easier for this breed to pick up kibble and helps encourage chewing.
