Product description

Complete feed for adult dogs that tend towards weight gain. With l-carnitine, 25% protein & only 8% fat. Rich in fibre, low in calories & wheat-free. CareConcept for all-round care.
MERA essential Light is a premium dry feed made according to the dietary needs of adult dogs that tend to gain weight easily. The high quality ingredients support health and vitality in your dog. The energy content of the feed has been reduced and the recipe is well balanced and rich in fibre. This calorie-reduced feed has a protein content of 25% and only 8% fat. Added l-carnitine helps burn energy and use up fat deposits in the body. The recipe contains no wheat, which is a frequent trigger of food intolerances and allergies.

Top quality poultry, egg and fish provide the protein (25%) and functional ingredients like probiotic inulin, salmon oil, linseed and yucca schidigera support different aspects of your dog's health. The MERA CareConcept provides your dog with a tasty meal that contains everything it needs: important natural antioxidants like vitamin C, E, beta-carotine and selenium provide optimal cellular protection. A high omega-3 and -6 fatty acid content from salmon oil, sunflower oil and linseed helps keep skin and fur healthy. Probiotic inulin improves and brings stability to intestinal flora and the digestion. High quality animal proteins from poultry, egg and fish support healthy body building as well as maintaining muscle mass and an active metabolism. A special active ingredient complex (Odour-Stop) can help to reduce nasty faeces odour. The food is made to standards in Germany that are of the highest level and are also free from colourants and preservatives.
