Product Guide

Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food is formulated for dogs with sensitive skin. Designed as a limited ingredient diet without compromising on nutritional delivery, each ingredient is chosen for a specific nutritional purpose. Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food is formulated with a single source of animal protein (Australian duck) and may be suitable for dogs that suffer from protein-based food allergies or intolerance due to beef or chicken. Australian grown sorghum has been included as a GMO free, gluten free, sustainable ancient grain with a low glycaemic index (GI) to supply a slow and steady release of carbohydrate energy throughout the day.

High quality, highly digestible Australian duck supplies at least 70% protein from this single meat source and ensures the supply of the complete range of essential and non-essential amino acids (building blocks especially for sustaining and repairing muscle) and all of the requirements for tissue synthesis and repair.

At Delicate Care™, we believe that a healthy gastrointestinal tract with a stable and healthy microbiome provides the first line of immune defence against pathogenic bacteria and other common pathogens in your dog. Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food contains a powerful blend of prebiotics to promote long term intestinal health, which in turn stimulates and helps to maintain a healthy immune system. Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food contains prebiotics in the form of FOS [Fructo-Oligo-Saccharides] and MOS [Manno-Oligo-Saccharides] which are special simple sugars that encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria like Bifidobacteria spp. in the gut. Additionally, Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food contains β-glucans to support your dog’s immune function.

Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food contains Omega Magic™, a natural blend of high grade Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential oils. This balanced and potent blend of sunflower and canola oils, flax seed oil, and fish oil with a high EPA and DHA content, ensures your dog maintains a glossy coat and healthy skin.

Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food contains easily digestible fat for energy for everyday activities. The fat levels in Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food are balanced to help manage your adult dog’s weight and well-being over the long term.

Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food contains powerful natural antioxidants from superfoods such as blueberries and turmeric. These ingredients help to prevent oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Blueberries are a superfood which contains high levels of the antioxidant resveratrol. They also contain tannins that support urinary tract health. Turmeric is a superfood that contains curcumin, which has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, curcumin in turmeric also supports brain function in adult dogs.

Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food contains Yucca schidigera, a natural plant extract that aids in reducing body and faecal odours.

Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food is naturally and carefully preserved with a natural antioxidant containing mixed tocopherols (Vitamin E) and rosemary extract. No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives (such as BHT, BHA and Ethoxyquin) are used. This natural theme is carried through the careful sourcing of our raw materials.

The feeding chart shown above is provided only as a guide for weight maintenance and is based on dogs that are taken for a 60 minute walk each day. Quantities fed to your dog can be adjusted depending on your Veterinarian’s recommendation or your dog’s condition score and/or activity level.

When changing to Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food from another diet, we recommend that you allow 7-10 days for transition. Introduce Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food slowly by mixing with your dog’s previous food, and gradually increase the amount of Delicate Care™ Adult Dog Food until you are feeding this exclusively. This gradual transition will reduce the chance of stomach upsets.
