Eukanuba Breed Specific Boxer Adult Dry Dog Food
Eukanuba Breed Specific dog food for boxers contains a wealth of ingredients that have been specially developed to give boxer dogs a health boost in areas where they need it most, ensuring all thier nutritional needs are met. For example, boxers are particularly prone to heart conditions (including aortic stenosis and cardiomyopathy), and this food contains L-carnitine and natural taurine to help boost heart health. L-carnitine also helps to burn fat, keeping your pet lean.
As boxers are a large breed of dog, they're also prone to joint discomfort as they grow older. Glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate have been added to keep joints working smoothly, as well as calcium to boost bone health. Other key ingredients include beta-carotene and vitamin E, which help to give the immune system a lift.

When to use it
This is a nutritionally complete dog food, and can be fed to your adult boxer in place of their standard food.

Although the recipe was designed with boxers in mind, it's also suitable for English, Gordon and Irish setters and Doberman pinschers.

Eukanuba Breed Nutrition Boxer Dog Food
When feeding for the first time gradually introduce Eukanuba into your dog's diet over a period of 4 days. We recommend feeding your dog twice a day. Divide the daily amount shown in the chart by the number of meals. Your dog may eat more or less depending on age, temperament and activity level.
For feeding guidelines, see feeding chart.
Always have plenty of fresh water available for your dog to drink.

Feeding The Correct Amount
It is important to remember however that these figures are guidelines only, and there are several factors to be taken into account when assessing your pet's nutritional requirements : -
- Activity level
- Temperament (stressed animals burn off more calories than relaxed ones)
- Metabolism (every animal is an individual with his or her own speed of metabolism; this means that 2 dogs of the same age, breed and weight could have different daily calorie requirements)
In order to provide the correct portions when feeding your dog or cat, it is also helpful to assess your pet's appetite, visual appearance and stools. Whilst poo watching does not sound particularly pleasant, it is one of the best indicators of health. Increased frequency of passing faeces, production of large quantities of stools of loose motions are often frequent signs that an animal is receiving more food than he or she requires.
It is important to obtain an accurate weight for your cat or dog, and also to weigh out the food. Guessing on both accounts gives a large margin of error.
Changing Food Brands
For a successful diet change, we recommend following the feeding pattern below. The daily feeding amount should be split into two equal amounts and the proportions of new food increased over the first week as illustrated.
TOP TIPS: For those dogs who do not make eating a priority, here are some additional points:
- Reduce the number of tit-bits given during the introductory period
- If your dog has been used to eating wet food, moisten with warm water.
