Our Premium ADULT Bredwell Bits are designed to provide a solid base for the meals your dog eats in the years between puppyhood and seniority.
They provide a balance between nutrients and calories and include all the essential vitamins and minerals needed by adult dogs. When our Bredwell Bits are combined with the protein you select, the resulting meals provide your dog with generous – but not excessive – amounts of protein, fat and fiber as well as all the other 36 nutrients your dog needs to stay fit and healthy.
Our Premium ADULT Bredwell Bits are focused on normal, healthy, mature dogs who don’t need special features in their food – but do need real meals that provide a superior dining experience and a balanced approach to daily nutrition.
The number one ingredient in our ADULT Bredwell Bit is a carefully selected Chicken Meal. There are no byproducts in our meal, which assure the best parts of the chicken provide the best source of the quality protein your dog needs to build and maintain its muscles and other tissues.
We combine the chicken meal with a blend of healthy whole grains (oats, barley and rice) which contribute energy for your dog’s metabolism and provide the crunch they crave in in every meal and helps keep their teeth clean.
The quality and composition of the fat in your dog’s meals is important to his health. All our Premium Bredwell Bits are made with pure Chicken Fat. This not only helps to make our Bredwell Bits tasty, but it also delivers the essential omega-6 fatty acids your dog needs. This is balanced with Salmon Oil and ground Flaxseed as sources of omega-3 fatty acids to help assure your dog’s health.
We make our Premium ACTIVE Bredwell Bit because, frankly, some dogs are just more active than others.
Our ACTIVE Bredwell Bits of for dogs who run more in the yard or in the park (or on the beach if they are lucky). They chase frisbees, tennis balls, their dog friends and maybe a cat or two. Some dogs love to swim, others go along with their owners for a run/jog/walk. All that extra activity takes extra energy, uses more muscles, and exposes the dogs to higher risks of oxidative damage and/or immune system challenges.
To help keep up with all that activity, our Premium ACTIVE Bredwell Bits and the meals made with them are designed to deliver more calories and more protein. Those additional calories support the extra activity, while the additional protein helps build bigger muscles and helps with the higher demand for muscle repair and maintenance.
Our ACTIVE Bits also contain higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which are known to help manage the dog’s natural inflammatory response and support the immune system.
Our Premium ACTIVE Bredwell Bits uses multiple sources of protein: both animal-based (Chicken Meal, Salmon Meal and Lamb Meal) and plant-based (Pea Protein and Potato Protein). That higher level of protein sources is matched with a lower combined level of our healthy whole grain blend (Oats, Barley and Rice).
The ACTIVE Bits contain our highest level of fat to provide more calories. Both ground Flaxseed and Salmon Oil – sources of omega-3 fatty acids – are used at levels higher than in our other Bits.
To make sure your dog stays healthy and active, our Premium ACTIVE Bredwell Bits include Taurine (important for heart function), Glucosamine and Chondroitin (to help support healthy joints), and supplements for all the essential micro-minerals and vitamins needed by your dog.
HEALTHY WEIGHT FORMULA
Despite measuring every Bredwell meal to the needs of dogs, some dog's simply need a little extra help in managing their diet.
Ask almost any veterinarian and they will tell you that the number one health issue for dogs is obesity. Our Premium HEALTHY WEIGHT Bredwell Bits and the meals we make with them have lower amounts of calories to help overweight dogs regain their natural healthy weight.
Weight maintenance is about balancing the calories coming in versus the calories your dog uses up. Just like us humans, when dogs eat more calories than they burn up, they store those extra calories in the form of body fat – and gain weight.
A good way to reverse weight gain is to maintain the same number of calories and increase your level of activity to burn more calories than are consumed. But for dogs, it can be difficult to achieve levels of higher activity for long enough periods to cause any real weight loss Reducing a dog’s calorie intake is an important weight loss tool, but they need all the essential nutrients despite getting fewer calories. The HEALTHY WEIGHT Bredwell Bits, deliver fewer calories, but still deliver enough of all the essential nutrients dogs need. With each meal pre-measured, it makes it easier to control just how many calories you give to your dog every day.
Chicken Meal is the number one ingredient and primary protein source in our Premium HEALTHY WEIGHT Bits. Since extra protein can become extra calories, we use less of this ingredient than in our other Bits. We also use low calorie plant-based ingredients (potatoes, alfalfa, and millet) to the blend of healthy whole grains (oats, barley and rice).
Since fat has more than twice as many calories per pound as starch, sugar or protein, we use the lowest amount of chicken fat in any of our formulas, while maintaining the levels of essential fatty acids to support good health.
Finally, to help support their calorie-burning activity, we include taurine (important for heart function), glucosamine and chondroitin (to help support healthy joints), and supplements for all the essential micro-minerals and vitamins needed by your dog.
Older dogs are a lot like their younger selves, but they can use a little extra help in their diets that comes with age.
Older dogs are often faced with issues of mobility and digestion that do change as they age. Our Premium SENIOR Bredwell Bits feature reduced levels of calories, protein and fat and increased levels of joint health supplements.
With less activity later in their lives, our meals with Premium SENIOR Bredwell Bits are designed to deliver fewer calories to avoid the risk of becoming overweight.
Our SENIOR Bits also have more fiber to help assure good intestinal function, less protein to reduce metabolic stress, more supplements to help support healthy joints, and a higher relative level of omega-3 fatty acids to helps to minimize inflammatory issues.
Our Premium SENIOR Bredwell Bits use chicken meal as their number one ingredient) and primary protein source, and a blend of healthy whole grains (oats, barley and rice) but we also add alfalfa as a source of extra fiber to support digestive health in older dogs.
We use chicken fat as a source of taste, calories, and essential fatty acids, but at a lower level than our ADULT Bit along with omega-3 fatty acids to help support a healthy inflammatory response in older dogs.
To make sure your dog stays healthy and active, our Premium SENIOR Bredwell Bits also include taurine (important for heart function), glucosamine and chondroitin, and supplements for all the essential micro-minerals and vitamins needed by your older dog.
