Where to buy

The formula contains OPTISTART®, an ingredient blend that includes colostrum – a nutrient from mother’s first milk that helps support your puppy’s natural defences.

Rich in high-quality chicken, the diet has been formulated by PURINA experts to promote strong teeth and joints, and to support all-round long-term health.

The nutritional needs of large dogs vary depending on their body shape – either robust or athletic. This formula has been specially tailored for the higher body fat mass and lower energy requirements of large robust dogs.
