Large Bite Dog Food
Large breed dogs can benefit from a ‘big bite’ food. Large Breeds are generally considered to be dogs with an adult weight of approximately 25kg or over. Dogs of this size tend to have a number of requirements/concerns in common. For instance a larger biscuit promotes chewing in their big mouths. As a result this can help slow down the rate of ingestion and therefore help to reduce the amount of air swallowed. Consequently the risk of bloat* can be reduced. Furthermore large breeds are more prone to hip and elbow problems as well as ligament issues. Similarly, large dogs have a tendency to age quicker and are prone to heart issues.
To help address these areas of concern, Easterbrooks large bite food has an adapted kibble size of approximately 20mm x 10mm. Compared to an average size dog biscuit, this is quite big and encourages the dog to chew instead of swallowing biscuits whole. In addition, a joint package of Chondroitin, Glucosamine and MSM helps to support joint function. Therefore the dog is able to move freely and be more active for longer. As a result, their weight is better managed which in turn takes pressure of the heart and joints. Finally added Omega 3 helps to reduce inflammation in general whilst supporting a healthy skin and coat.
Depending on the breed, adult large bite dog food can normally be fed from about 15 months old. The larger the breed, the longer they will stay on large puppy food. For instance a Great Dane could stay on puppy food up to 2 years old.

Simple & Digestible Ingredients
Chicken and Rice have been go-to ingredients for dogs for many years. Chicken is a nutrient rich, lean protein source, full of essential amino acids. In addition it provides important vitamins and minerals including B-Vitamins as well as Iron. Similarly, rice is an easily digestible carbohydrate source that can be beneficial for big dogs with a sensitive digestion. Our Large Bite dog food wraps all this nutrition and goodness into a complete and tasty biscuit!
All bags of Easterbrooks large bite dog food come with suggested feeding quantities. However, these are purely a guide. For instance, the following factors can have an affect on feeding quantities:
- individual breed.
- metabolic rate.
- level of activity.
- ambient living temperature etc.
As a result, adjust feeding quantities as necessary. No matter how good a food is, too much is no good! For example, over feeding will usually lead to poor digestion and soft poo. Not to mention weight gain. Similarly, too little will affect their ability to maintain a healthy bodyweight.
Easterbrooks large bite Breeder Packs are designed for households with multiple dogs or working/sporting dogs. If you do not have working dogs, reduce suggested feeding quantities by about 10%. In addition, Breeder Packs are Vat Free so can be a more cost effective way to feed your dogs.
