Sensitive Skin Raw Diet for Skin Health and Arthritis

RRP $
27.99

Available in 3kg pack with 12 x 250g individual patties.

Loaded with skin-nourishing and anti-inflammatory goodness, this diet had been formulated to help address skin problems from the inside out and help dogs with itchy, sore, irritated and inflamed skin, get back to their optimal state of health as quickly and naturally as possible. Our Sensitive Skin raw food diet contains excellent sources of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids from whole salmon and sardines. Anti-inflammatory ingredients join these in the form of cold pressed coconut oil and turmeric. These ingredients are responsible for promoting healthy skin, a healthy soft and shiny coat and a stronger immune system, all working together towards healing and reducing the likelihood of future skin issues. This unique recipe is also perfect for dogs with arthritis who need anti-inflammatory dietary support to help manage this condition.

As with all Big Dog recipes, to this combination, we add nutrient-dense and phytochemical-rich fruits and vegetables. All topped off with our special extra ingredients, including ginger, garlic, flaxseed, whole eggs, kelp, wheatgrass, probiotics and prebiotics.

Feeding Guide For Little Bites

TREATS / TOPPERS: If using Big Dog Little Bites as treats or toppers, integrate into your dog’s diet taking their total energy requirements into account.

MEALS: If using Big Dog Little Bites as your dog’s primary source of nutrition, feed 3 Little Bites per kg of body weight daily.

For puppies under 12 months, pregnant or lactating dogs or working active dogs with higher energy requirement, double the daily serve size.

For dogs 5 kg and over, consider Big Dog Big Bites or Big Dog raw patties for an economical feeding option for larger daily feeding amounts.

How to Rehydrate

To rehydrate Big Dog Freeze Dried Little Bites into healthy raw food simply add room-temperature water to the Bites, crumble and mix. For each Little Bite add 6 mL of water to reconstitute (a metric teaspoon is approx. 5 mL).

Watch this video to see how easy rehydrating freeze dried food is!

When using as treats or not rehydrating freeze-dried food, remember to have plenty of fresh drinking water available for your dog.
