One cannot help but fall in love with a Labrador for his natural affability, the gentle and loyal look in his eye, a solid physique, and a link nature…a Laabrador Retriever is truly versatile! And this pooch needs a perfect balanced food to keep him fit and fine…and Royal Canin’s Labrador Retriever 30 provides a balanced diet.
A Lab’s characteristics…
Diet formulation for specific needs…
Nutritional complex for the skin and coat – The skin and coat form a barrier against outside attack and the nutritional complex of this food reinforces this effect. Labrador Retriever 30 provides 30 percent protein level, using high biological value proteins, to contribute to the building of keratin in the hair. Sulphur Amino Acids such as Methionine and Cystine are added. Zinc, combined with Linoleic Acid, aids healing and a shiny coat, while Vitamin A contributes to a balanced production of sebum, which allows the water to bead on the coat. Vitamin B and other nutrients (Niacin, Panthotenic Acid…) and Omega 3 and 6 Fatty Acids, reinforce the barrier function of the skin, maintaining the health and shine of the coat.
Weight management – The extreme climate of his birthplace has had an influence on the morphology of the Labrador, favouring the production of fatty mass over lean mass (muscle), this effective protection against the cold makes a rich diet appropriate.
However, in more clement regions, where the Labrador is at the heart of the family, the dog’s appetite has not evolved making the management of diet vital. Labrador Retriever 30 is formulated to control the energy contribution. A protein diet (30 percent of proteins for 13 percent of MG), which encourages lean mass – muscle – to the detriment of fatty mass. Barley starch, which is digested very slowly gives a feeling of fullness and regulates Glycemia, while L-Carnitine mobilises the fats for better use by the body. A large, low-density kibble obliges the dog to chew, he eats more slowly, making him feel full quicker, while brushing the teeth mechanically at the same time. Feed your dog in portions related to his activity and you have a perfectly shaped Lab.
Protecting the joints – The strong bone structure and relatively heavy stature of the Labrador combined with an almost constant physical expenditure can be tiring and puts regular stress on the joints. Labrador Retriever
30 aims to protect the joints by maintaining ideal weight. Chondroitine and Glucosamine help in cartilage renewal and combined with Manganese, fight against the risk of arthritis, while Omega 3 and 6 Fatty Acids (EPA-DHA) have an anti-inflammatory action.
When a dog expends a lot of energy over a long period, he depletes his energy reserves and the resulting imbalance releases free radicals. By helping the body rebuild its stocks of antioxidants, the oxidative effects of stress can be limited. Vitamins E and C, Luteine and Taurine improve the natural immune defences of the dog.
Preserving the cognitive functions of the Labrador? – The Labrador is endowed with unique faculties, exceptional endurance; enthusiasm for a difficult task; the ability to remember around 50 orders and gestures; and to memorise the landing places of 10 game birds at once and bring them back in the order they landed! Acute eyesight needs to be kept in perfect order – the contribution of Luteine and Zeaxanthine, present in the lens and retina, play a role against oxidative injury. The effects of ageing and behavioural problems are prevented via a complex of antioxidants (Vitamins E and C, Lutein, Taurine).
Hence, Labrador 30 takes care of all the needs of your Lab to keep him in perfect health.
