In a nod to the distinctly different dietary needs between large breed and small breed dogs, the Wellness brand of natural food and treats for pets announces two new product lines joining the Super5Mix family of dry dog food -- Super5Mix Large Breed Puppy and Adult Health, and Super5Mix Small Breed Adult Health.

Not all puppy breeds grow in the same way. Large breed puppies, for instance, have special considerations for their weight and bones, and can be at risk of serious development issues. Wellness knows that just feeding them a bigger kibble is not the solution. The company's nutritionists and veterinarians created Large Breed Puppy Health as the best nutritional solution for their unique needs. With precise calcium and phosphorus levels for proper bone development and controlled fat and calories for well-paced growth, Large Breed Puppy Health ensures the right start to a healthy weight. This new formula also delivers guaranteed levels of DHA that support brain development vital for learning and training.

Large Breed Adult Health is holistically formulated to effectively manage the special nutritional needs of large breed dogs. These large dogs need to feel full without consuming excess calories. The moderate fat and controlled caloric intake in Large Breed Adult Health helps to prevent obesity. In addition, Wellness has included therapeutic levels of Glucosamine and Chondroitin to aid in supporting their overburdened joints; and live probiotics and increased natural fiber promote easy digestion through their smaller digestive tracts.

Small breed adult dogs eat small meals but need increased energy to support their metabolisms, and need to control calories to prevent obesity. With a life expectancy of up to 20 years, small breed's life-systems need nutritional support to stay strong. Small Breed Adult Health supports the special lifestyle of these dogs with just the right ingredient balance. The smaller bite-sized kibble is perfectly proportioned for small jaws and teeth, and a guaranteed great taste pleases even the most finicky palates.

"At Wellness, we're passionate about helping pet parents feed their dogs the healthiest food possible," said Deborah Ellinger, CEO of Wellness. "With attention to the particular health and wellness needs of dogs of all sizes, consumers can be confident that they've got the perfect, wholesome recipes for their dogs' unique breed-related needs."


As with all Wellness natural pet foods, these new recipes contain no meat by-products, wheat or wheat gluten, corn, soy, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Each recipe features The 5 For Life Supplement System , a complete array of complementary ingredients designed to protect, restore and nurture dogs:

-- Fruit & Veggie Antioxidant Rainbow -- a proactive step towards fighting disease;

-- The WellCoat Omega 3 & 6 Mix for healthy skin and coat;

-- Botanical & Herb Blend of nature's best ingredients, each with their own nutritional properties;

-- Essential Vitamins & Minerals for cellular health, immunity and disease resistance;

-- After cooking, each kibble is ActiCoated with live active probiotics to promote a healthy intestinal tract and overall digestive health.

Super5Mix Small Breed Adult Health comes in 4 and 12 lb. bags, while Super5Mix Large Breed Adult Health and Super5Mix Large Breed Puppy Health come in 15 and 30 lb. bags. All are available nationwide at pet specialty stores.
