Product description

Complete feed for elderly dogs with lower phosphorous & sodium content. Wheat-free with chondroitin & glucosamine, increased vitamin content, 22% protein & 9% fat. CareConcept for all-round care.
As dogs age, their dietary needs change. MERA essential Senior is a premium dry feed made according to the dietary needs of elderly dogs. The high quality ingredients support health and vitality in your dog. This feed has a moderate protein content of 22% and a lightly reduced energy content of 9.5% to meet the altered energy requirements. The SeniorPlus Complex in this feed also has a lowered phosphorous and sodium content to take the burden off of the kidneys. The food contains New Zealand green-lipped mussels, which are rich in chondroitin and glucosamine to help maintain cartilage and joints. MERA essential Senior contains extra vitamins and natural beta-glucane to support the body's natural defenses. The recipe contains no wheat, which frequently triggers food intolerances and allergies.

Top quality poultry, egg and fish provide protein 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.
