Health Benefits



OPTIMUM™ Adult Large Breeds contains high levels of chicken, providing a natural source of Glucosamine. Glucosamine contains the natural building blocks for cartilage to help maintain joint health. This is particularly important for larger breeds as they are more prone to joint health problems


OPTIMUM™  Adult Large Breeds is specially designed with larger pieces to help promote chewing. Chewing is the vital first step in the digestion process.

In the gut, the inclusion of a natural prebiotic, inulin, helps promote the growth of beneficial bacteria, resulting in smaller, firmer stools.  Additionally, beet pulp fibre helps to control intestinal transit and maximise nutrient absorption.


OPTIMUM™  Adult Large Breeds contains a unique blend of antioxidants including vitamin E & C.  Scientific studies have proven that vitamin E & C help strengthen the immune system, and keep your dog healthy by helping to reduce the oxidative stress on your dog's cells.


The OPTIMUM™ range delivers a healthier, shinier coat because it contains a blend of zinc and linoleic acid (a naturally occurring oil). Scientific studies have proven that a blend of zinc and Omega 6 has a positive effect on skin and coat health.  


The OPTIMUM™ specifically designed dental system helps to reduce plaque build up and help protect teeth and gums. The mechanical action of chewing the crunchy dry kibble, in combination with the active ingredient (sodium tripolyphosphate) helps promote good oral hygiene.


The unique OPTIMUM™  dry product formulation contains Arginine and Vitamin E. Scientific studies have shown that Arginine and Vitamin E helps to maintain healthy blood circulation.


From quality ingredients, OPTIMUM™ Adult Large Breeds contains no added artificial colours or flavours Made with real meat the OPTIMUM™ product range provides a nutritionally complete and balanced meal that your dog will enjoy everyday

Research shows that feeding your dog a mix of both wet and dry products has a broad range of health benefits. OPTIMUM™ has created a variety of both wet and dry formulations to suit your dog at every life stage. When feeding both, simply halve the recommended quantities of each product. This is a guide only. Individual needs may vary depending on age, breed, activity level and environmental factors.

Clean fresh water should always be available for your dog.
