Small and active, we love and adore small breeds and have created this recipe especially for them. Our Small Breed dog recipe is prepared with nutrient-rich, fresh de-boned Turkey and MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certified wild Pacific Salmon, sourced from our trusted network of local and regional government certified farmers and fishing vessels. Our Turkey and Salmon is delivered to our kitchens fresh and refrigerated each day, and are never frozen to maintain the integrity and quality of the ingredients. Whole fruits and vegetables from the Okanagan and Fraser Valleys are included as grain-free sources of carbohydrates to nourish them consistent with their digestive capabilities. Vital nutrients are added to the VALENS Small Breed recipe to ensure your dog receives all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, prebiotics and probiotics they require to support a healthy body and immune system.

Ingredients

VALENS Small Breed Dog is specially prepared with fresh de-boned Turkey and wild Salmon to support the fast metabolism, cognitive function and healthy development of your small breed. Our signature VITA-CUBE comprised of human-grade pure freeze-dried Salmon from the Pacific Ocean that is rich in nutrients is added for increased palatability, aroma and flavour.

Delicious Sweet Potatoes that contain a wealth of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are added, as well as tangy red Cranberries that are abundant in fiber and antioxidants, to compliment the high content of Turkey and Salmon.

VALENS Small Breed contains peas, sweet potatoes, and apples as sources of low glycemic grain-free carbohydrates that are absorbed slowly by the digestive system to maintain and promote a healthy weight and metabolism.

Other super nutrients, such as Omega 3-6 (DHA, EPA) that are necessary to maintain and promote a healthy coat, skin, joints and cognitive function, are also added from human-grade chicken fat, salmon oil and flax seed sources, to support the overall health and well-being of your dog.

Unique Nutritional Requirements

Small Breed dogs require more calories for each pound of body weight than larger breeds, because of their fast metabolism and heart rate.  As they generally live longer than larger breeds, extra antioxidants are added to support cell health, a strong heart and the nutritional requirements they require to remain active throughout their life.  Dogs have 10 essential amino acids that they are not able to synthesize themselves.  To support their busy bodies we include these amino acids that build muscle and synthesize protein through our recipe formulations. A range of chelated bio-available minerals are also included that are vital to their health, along with enzymes that they naturally lack which contribute to improved digestion.
