Formulation: It is the first greyhound rearing diet to combine the best Irish, UK and US nutrition expertise.
State of the Art Manufacturing Process: Gain® Puppy & Sapling is produced in the top American dog feed factory, which is rated world no.1 for consistent quality ingredients and manufacturing technology.
Protein Source: The inclusion of high quality protein from chicken, fish, eggs, gluten meal and skim milk, ensuring the correct amino acid balance for development and strength.
Maintenance of Lean Muscle Mass: Development of lean muscle mass is helped by the inclusion of L-Carnitine, due to its role in reducing the deposition of body fat.
Optimum Energy Supply: An optimum energy supply is maintained by the inclusion of brewers rice, maize, chicken fat and canola oil, which helps promote slow controlled growth up to maturity.
Gastrointestinal Health: The inclusion of brewers yeast, FOS and pulp helps promote a healthy digestive system. The exclusion of wheat and soya helps increase digestibility and reduces the risk of digestive upsets.
Healthy Skin & Coat: Flaxseed, fish and canola oil are included to help maintain the correct Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio, which helps skin, coat, brain and vision development.
Strong Immune System: High levels of Vitamin E and other antioxidants help to develop a strong natural immunity.
Chelated Minerals and Essential Vitamins: The inclusion of a scientific balance of high quality chelated minerals and essential vitamins in Gain® Puppy & Sapling is critical for optimum growth and development.
Skeletal Growth: The inclusion of TruCal (Glanbia’s unique source of highly available natural milk calcium) and skim milk help promote strong bones and teeth.
Joint Mobility: Glucosamine and Chondrotin are included to help develop good joint mobility.
Low Ash Level: The patented low-ash manufacturing process increases digestibility and helps eliminate kidney problems.

This feeding guide should be adjusted depending on the pup’s level of activity, and external conditions, so that your dog maintains a lean healthy condition. Feed dry or moistened to a consistency your dog prefers.
Young pups should be fed 3 times per day, reducing to twice daily as they get older. For pregnant and lactating bitches, feed the 10 – 12 month rate. Many breeders prefer to feed Gain® Puppy & Sapling dry ad lib. Please ensure that fresh drinking water is available at all times.
