Like humans, maintaining good oral hygiene for dogs is an important factor of good 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.


OPTIMUM™ Puppy 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.


From quality ingredients, OPTIMUM™ Puppy 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
