How to help your dog keep a healthy weight
Managing your pooch's weight is very important to reduce the risk of developing serious illnesses. Alongside regular exercise, a well-balanced diet is key.
Ensure to feed your dog foods that are adapted to their breed (especially for small breeds) as well as their age. Indeed, a puppy doesn't have the same nutritional requirements as a senior dog!
We highly recommend limiting the amount of treats and keeping them for specific occasions. You can also opt for "healthier" treats that provide specific benefits. Our Functional Dog Treats range is composed of 5 different recipes, each one having a targeted benefit such as dental health or calming properties.
