Royal Canin Boxer Dry Dog Food
There are still several theories about where the name Boxer comes from. Some say that it comes from the English term for a fist fighter. But others think that it comes from the Dutch town name of Boxtel that then became altered to Boxer.
The special physiology of the Boxer, such as its active lifestyle and unique facial and jaw formation make it a very unusual breed that needs special attention, especially in terms of its nutrition.
· MUSCULAR DYNAMISM Your Boxer is full of spirit and enthusiasm and a very active dog, all of which can cause great strain on his muscles and joints. Special care should be taken in preserving muscle mass and joint mobility. Boxer 26TM promotes muscle development and helps protect the joints. The formulation has been developed with high quality proteins and significant concentrations of L-carnitine, chondroitin, glucosamine and essential fatty acids (Omega 6 and Omega 3).
· LONG LIFE SPAN Your Boxer may suffer from cardio-vascular diseases, the most common being dilated cardio-myopathy, which can lead to heart failure. Over an extended period of time, the heart muscle becomes incapable of contracting sufficiently to ensure an optimal level of blood circulation. Boxer 26TM strengthens and protects cardiac function. The diet is formulated with the necessary nutrients to meet these special needs: taurine, L-carnitine, vitamin E, lutein, essential fatty acids and green tea polyphenols.
· BRACHYCEPHALIC HEAD Your Boxer has a unique facial and jaw morphology (form and structure). It can create problems when the dog attempts to grasp the food, resulting in increased speed of ingestion and wasted food. Boxer 26TM makes it easier for your dog to grasp the food and promotes chewing with a special kibble size, shape and texture adapted to his morphology. Boxer 26TM also includes antioxidant vitamins C and E, taurine and lutein that help to protect cell DNA from free radicals.
· ACTI-DIGEST SUPPORTS OPTIMAL DIGESTIVE SAFETY Limits fermentation in the colon: ingredients are very finely ground to significantly improve digestibility of the food and to reduce the quantity of fermentable residues in the colon. Protects the intestinal mucosae by supplying insoluble minerals. Improves the consistency of the stools by incorporating the ideal ratio of fermentable to non-fermentable fibers.
