Wellness® launches all-natural line of dry dog food specially developed with super nutrients for toy breeds

Think ground flaxseed and natural, deboned chicken are gourmet menu ingredients only found at top Zagat-rated restaurants? Think again. Wellness® Natural Pet Food announces an all-new line of dry dog food designed for the tiniest of digestive systems: Wellness Toy Breed Complete Health. The Wellness Toy Breed line features natural ingredients and super nutrients developed for Pomeranians, Chihuahuas, French Bulldogs and the twenty-two other recognized toy breeds. The new dry dog food also has a special crunchy texture that can combat dogs' plaque build-up, helping to maintain overall oral health. 

"Shopping for dog food can be a daunting task when faced with a multitude of formulations for different sizes, ages, activity levels and more. Size matters significantly when it comes to nutritional needs, especially for toy breed dogs," says Chanda Leary-Coutu, Senior Marketing Manager for Wellness Natural Pet Food. "Pomeranians and Great Danes – two very different sized dogs – simply aren't going to have the same metabolic rate, bite size, or daily caloric intake. It's important to look for all-natural offerings like Wellness Toy Breed to ensure your pup receives quality food that is appropriate for his or her digestive needs."

The Wellness Toy Breed Complete Health line has three formulations: 1) Adult Health Deboned Chicken, Brown Rice & Peas Recipe, 2) Healthy Weight Deboned Chicken & Barley Recipe, and 3) Senior Health Deboned Chicken & Oatmeal Recipe. Each has the right balance of protein, fat and calories to provide the energy little dogs need. The Complete Health Toy Breed Adult Health recipe, for example, is protein-rich to support energy needs, whereas the Complete Health Toy Breed Senior Health recipe supports heart health with controlled sodium levels. The Complete Health Toy Breed Healthy Weight recipe is reduced fat to help maintain a healthy weight and also contains L-carnitine to help support a healthy metabolism. All three recipes have omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids to support healthy skin and a shiny coat.

Wellness Toy Breed Complete Health natural dry dog food will be available at pet specialty retailers and natural food stores nationwide beginning March 2014 for the suggested retail price of $8.99 (2lb bag) and $15.99 (4lb bag).
