I received this press release a few days ago, and thought I’d share the news with those of you who have pocket pets. As you know, my dogs are all pretty big, so I can’t say I have reviewed this food. Let me know what you think if you try it!
New Wellness Super5Mix® Small Breed Recipes – Just for Puppy and Healthy Weight
TEWKSBURY, Mass. – (June 2011) – This month, Wellness Natural Pet Food is proud to launch two innovative dog food recipes in its Super5Mix Small Breed line that will please small dogs with mighty souls and big nutritional needs! Designed for the unique physical composition of small breed dogs, the new recipes adhere to Wellness’ belief that every ingredient has a purpose, thoughtfully chosen for head-to-tail nutritional benefits to support total well-being. Complete with wholesome and natural ingredients, no wheat, corn and soy, and no added artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, these new varieties will have tails wagging:
- Small Breed Just for Puppy Recipe has guaranteed levels of DHA to support healthy brain development in puppyhood, high quality carbohydrates, proteins and fats to keep up with high-energy needs, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, vitamins and minerals to help support healthy growth, and smaller kibble size for more petite mouths and teeth.
- Small Breed Healthy Weight Recipe features reduced fat – 26 percent less than Super5Mix Small Breed Adult Health– and lower calories to help achieve healthy weight loss. The unique recipe, created especially for overweight dogs, includes quality proteins – like deboned turkey and salmon meal – to help maintain lean muscle mass, pea fiber to aid in naturally satisfying a dog’s appetite, guaranteed levels of L-Carnitine to help reduce overall body fat, and glucosamine and chondroitin to support hip and joint health.
The two new diets join the existing Small Breed Adult Health Recipe, which provides optimal caloric intake for healthy adult body weight and four quality animal protein sources for lean, strong muscles. All Super5Mix Small Breed recipes feature the WellCoat® Omega 3 & 6 Mix, which allows for nourished skin and a healthy, shiny coat.
“Small breed dogs have a much different physical composition than larger breeds – like smaller digestive tracts – which creates special nutritional needs,” said Laura Marseglia, Brand Manager for Wellness. “In addition, small breeds can have a life expectancy of up to 20 years, so it’s important that life systems stay strong. We’re very excited to offer this full line of specially formulated, natural dog food for our small canine friends so they may lead long and happy lives.”
Wellness Super5Mix Small Breed Just for Puppy and Small Breed Healthy Weight recipes are available in 4 lb and 12 lb bags. Look for them at pet specialty retailers and natural food stores nationwide beginning June 2011. To find an authorized Wellness retailer near you.
