UNPARALLELED EXCELLENCE IN NUTRITION

Total Canine™ is a complete, extruded dog food formulated to provide the essential nutrients for maximum health, growth and reproduction.  The ingredients used in Total Canine™ are of the highest quality and provide excellent bioavailability of nutrients to the animal. 


Protein The protein in Total Canine™ is from all natural sources.       

Major MineralsCalcium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium are critical major minerals for growth, reproduction and lactation.  They are required in specific ratios and levels for maximum performance.  Total Canine™ is formulated to contain these critical minerals at levels and ratios for all conditions.    

Trace MineralsTrace minerals act as catalysts for most chemical reactions in the animal’s body.  All feedstuffs contain trace minerals, but the levels are variable and the bioavailability of each is not well known.  Inadequate trace mineral intake can result in slow growth, low reproductive performance and inadequate immune function.  Total Canine™ is formulated to meet not only minimum, but optimum levels of trace minerals for maximum performance.  To insure adequate bioavailability, Total Canine™
contains a minimum of 50% of the copper, manganese and Zinc as Amino Acid Chelates; which is the most bioavailable form known. 

   

VitaminsVitamins act as catalysts and antioxidants to start chemical reactions in the body and reduce cell aging and destruction.  Total Canine™contains levels of vitamins A & E that assist in preventing cell destruction due to oxidative chemicals from the environment and from metabolic by-products. Total Canine™ contains a broad spectrum of B-complex vitamins to maximize the growth of the microflora in the intestine which improves digestion.

Ascophyllum nodosumTotal Canine™ contains Tasco™ brand of A. nodosum; which is documented by science to improve immune function, improve heat stress resistance, improve milk production, and control E. coli in the large intestine.   

ExtrusionPhysical processing of feed makes a great difference in the digestibility of the major ingredients and the bioavailability of micronutrients.  The extrusion process is one that prepares ingredients with a high temperature and moisture and then exposes them to an extreme pressure to expose the starches and fibers.  This in turn provides a greater surface area for enzymes and bacteria to attach to, which accelerates the digestive process.  Extrusion maximizes the digestibility of feed.

Feeding Instructions:

Many things influence proper food intake: Age, sex, breed, temperament, exercise. It is not possible to create a feed chart that is correct for all of the different factors. The trained eye of the keeper is finally the best guide. Feed the amount that achieves the body condition you consider ideal; a visible waist from above, ribs that are not evident, but easily felt under the coat.

Pregnant dogs should be fed 1/3 more than normal. Lactating dogs should be fed twice as much as normal for the six weeks of nursing. Approaching weaning, puppies will nibble on mother’s food. Weaned puppies should be fed 4 times/day to 4 months.
