Dear Dog Enthusiast,
The Best Breed Lamb Meal with Fruits and Vegetables is a very healthful red meat and fish formula. It is an excellent food for all adult dogs, but especially those with sensitivities to poultry.
The formula begins with grass-fed lamb sourced from New Zealand, followed by omega-3 rich whitefish. Best Breed whitefish comes from the U.S. and contains wild-caught Alaskan cod, flounder, and halibut. It is very high in protein and low in ash – meaning it is one of the best meats available! Following the meats are only healthy, whole grains that are highly nutritious and easily digestible. We also used plenty of fruits and vegetables as healthful sources of fiber and antioxidants. The cranberries used in this formula are also excellent for urinary tract and stomach health and the formula’s natural sources glucosamine assist in joint and connective tissue health.
Lastly, like all of Best Breed’s foods, the Lamb Meal with Fruits and Vegetables 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 not intended to represent absolute values and therefore not guaranteed as in the above table. The information should be used as a helpful guide when determining if a specific formula is suitable for a known dietary requirement. Should you need any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
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.
