Dalmatians are energetic and affectionate dogs known for their distinct coats; making them great companions. Royal Canin has developed a selection of dog food specifically tailored to this breed’s requirements.
Each nutrient is carefully considered and researched to ensure optimal health, with its shape, size, texture, and shape tailored specifically for each breed’s facial and jaw structure and bite pattern.
Breed-specific nutrition for your pure breed Dalmatian
Dalmatians are active dogs that should be given a high-quality diet rich in essential nutrients like protein and vitamins to maintain a healthy weight and remain physically fit. These foods will aid them in staying at an ideal bodyweight.
Your pure breed Dalmatian should receive ample amounts of exercise on a regular basis in order to dispel excess energy and ensure they rest properly after an active day of play. This will also ensure a more peaceful nighttime.
Your pure breed Dalmatian may also benefit from taking dietary supplements tailored specifically to their unique needs, which will boost nutritional intake, strengthen immunity and offer extra support against any health conditions they might be suffering from at any point in their life.
Optimal nutrition for your dog’s skin and coat
Your dog’s optimal skin and coat health depends upon a diet full of proteins, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals – such as those provided in an optimal food supply diet for him!
Protein is essential for maintaining the health and vitality of both skin and coat in dogs, without which their coat could become thin, dry and brittle.
Fatty acids like linoleic acid, omega-6 and omega-3 are vital in supporting your dog’s skin and coat health. They allow cells in his or her skin to form tough membranes that keep water and other substances out or from seeping in.
Vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin and pantothenic acid help promote healthy skin and coat in dogs, while supporting immunity as well as cell division.
Optimal nutrition for your dog’s urinary health
Urinary tract health is essential to your dog’s overall wellbeing, and plays a key role in their wellbeing. A healthy urinary tract can prevent bladder stones, urate crystals and other issues from forming and can protect against future medical issues that arise as a result.
Struvite and calcium oxalate stones are among the most prevalent, but other mineral components may also form in your dog’s urine such as uric acid, cystine and other compounds.
Choose a diet tailored specifically for your dog as this can have a major impact on their urine chemistry, leading to the formation of struvite and oxalate crystals in their urine. A diet which dilutes its properties and prevents crystal formation may reduce risk of stone formation.
Diets for dogs suffering from urinary disease are designed specifically to aid in dissolving struvite and calcium oxalate stones while supporting proper urine pH balance. Your veterinarian can often recommend such diets; wet and dry options may be available depending on their specific requirements.
Optimal nutrition for your dog’s cardiac health
Nutrition plays an essential part in treating canine heart disease. Whether your pet has experienced a heart attack or has congestive heart failure, choosing an appropriate diet can help control symptoms and postpone further progression of this condition.
Ideal cardiac health demands a diet rich in specific heart-boosting nutrients such as long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, arginine, carnitine and taurine.
Also, an ideal sodium intake level in a dog’s diet should be kept to a minimum as higher amounts can contribute to fluid build-up in their bodies and lead to congestive heart failure (CHF).
Many veterinarians recommend therapeutic diets to their clients with CHF, such as Restrict-CKD(tm), Royal Canin(r) Veterinary Diet Canine Cardiac, Hill’s Prescription Diet(r) h/d Heart Care Dry Food or Rayne Clinical Nutrition(tm). The nutritional profile recommended meets all their nutrient needs without impairing normal heart function.
