Dear Dog Enthusiast,
The Best Breed Chicken with Vegetables and Herbs diet is a simple, natural formula that contains limited sources of protein, fat, and carbohydrates.
The diet begins with chicken, its primary protein source that is highly digestible and has the essential amino acids needed to promote strong, lean muscle mass. Further, it contains wholesome grains and fats for maintaining optimum energy levels. High quality fats also provide an excellent balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids – both of which are requisites in maintaining a vibrant coat and healthy skin.
The diet is fortified with healthy ingredients, like vegetables, Green Mussel and bacteria cultures (probiotics), to promote your best friend’s holistic health. Its vegetables, including tomatoes, carrots, beets, and spinach, are all rich in the vitamins and minerals needed for a healthy immune system. And the diet’s sources of glucosamine and chondroitin, naturally support joint and connective tissue health.
Lastly, like all of Best Breed’s diets, the Chicken with Vegetables and Herbs diet is formulated without low-grade ingredients that are harder for your dog to digest and may be harmful to his health. Some of these ingredients include animal by-product meal, cheap fillers, any sort of gluten (e.g., corn gluten), and artificial preservatives, flavors, and colors. Thank you for your interest and please do not hesitate to contact me with questions.

It is important to remember that your dog’s nutritional needs are unique and will vary with his environment, age and activity level. We recommend feeding to condition, this means using the following guide as a starting point, monitoring his weight and adjusting amounts accordingly. Feeding at least twice a day is optimal. Make sure fresh, clean water is available always.
