Arden Grange Adult Lamb and Rice Dog Food contains Grade A British lamb meal as the primary ingredient, an excellent protein source that is both palatable and easily digested. Arden Grange Lamb and Rice is an ideal adult maintenance food for pet dogs or those used for light work, with added Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM to help maintain joint health, that can be fed dry or moistened depending on your dog's preference.
Lamb is an alternative protein source that is suited to those dogs with an intolerance or allergy to chicken protein. The medium sized kibble of the lamb and rice flavour will be readily accepted by a variety of dogs including small, large and even giant breeds such as mastiffs and irish wolf hounds who may prefer the smaller kibble size to the large breed variety!
Like all arden grange adult varieties the lamb and rice recipe contains prebiotics to help remove harmful bacteria, thereby reducing digestive upsets, whilst the inclusion of nucleotides maximises the digestion of foods in the gut, allowing optimum levels of nutrients to be absorbed. As with all arden grange foods the adult lamb and rice variety is also hypoallergenic and free from wheat gluten, dairy products, beef, soya as well as artificial colourings, flavourings and preservatives known to provoke adverse food reactions.
Lamb is a traditional source of meat protein, used by many premium dog food manufacturers not just arden grange, that is ideal for dogs prone to digestive upsets or skin complaints, to calm a dog's digestion and avoid allergic skin irritations like eczema, loose digestion or flatulence!
Without doubt lamb is more bland than any other meat protein, including chicken that is richer in taste and flavour, making the arden grange lamb and rice variety suitable for those adult dogs with delicate digestion that prefer meat protein to the taste of fish, even though it's more sensitive.
But the lamb and rice dog food is cheaper, so it makes sense to try this variety first rather than the Arden Grange Salmon & Rice or the Sensitive Ocean Fish & Potato, to see if your dog's digestive complaints can be resolved without changing to the more expensive fish based adult dog food varieties.
The lamb meal sourced by arden grange, for the adult lamb and rice recipe is made using grass fed British lamb, that is high in essential vitamins and minerals, including zinc and B vitamins and rich in calcium, whilst whole grain white rice is used in preference to brown rice, that is often portrayed by some dog food manufacturers as being healthier but this is not the case, as it's simply white rice with the brown husk removed.
Rice husks don't really offer any nutritional value, so arden grange doesn't include them in the lamb and rice recipe or any other variety. Rice is used by arden grange and other premium dog food brands as it's a highly digestible source of food that will provide your dog with a steady release of energy throughout the day and also help to stabilise a dog's blood sugar levels.
Health problems like itchy skin and recurrent ear infections are often signs that your dog is not metabolising their food correctly, which can be often be alleviated by changing your dog's food to a hypoallergenic food like arden grange, burns or wafcol and by gradually phasing in a food with a new protein source such as lamb and rice or salmon to help your dog break down the protein into essential amino acids more efficiently.
The symptoms of food allergies vary from digestive disorders to skin complaints, but feeding your dog a hypoallergenic lamb, chicken or fish based dog food is less likely to trigger an adverse food reaction than non-hypoallergenic, meat derivative based foods that may contain artificial colours and flavours. As they normally do not specify exactly what you are feeding your dog, making it extremely difficult to exclude ingredients that may cause a food allergy or intolerance!
Lastly arden grange lamb and rice contains natural antioxidant vitamins A, C, E, beta carotene, yucca, cranberry and rosemary oil to inhibit the formation of destructive free radicals, to enhance the immune system and omega 3 & 6 fatty acids in the correct ratios for good skin and coat condition. Cranberry extract is also added to help maintain urinary tract health, whilst yucca may also help with body and faecal odour.
We are often asked, by new dog owners and experienced handlers too, how much arden grange they should feed their adult dog?
So we have included on this page a recommended feeding chart, that shows the amount of lamb and rice dog food suitable for your dog's weight in kg's for small to extra large dogs, but please remember factors such as age, breed, metabolism and activity level will influence the amount of arden grange lamb and rice required by your dog, so may need to feed more or less food depending your dog's individual needs!
