Specific CAD Active contains an increased level of fat to ensure a higher concentration of free fatty acids in the blood. This serves as a source of energy for the more active dog because of their higher energy requirements. The high quality protein content ensures for healthy maintenance and development of muscle mass. High levels of omega 3 fatty acids from fish are also present as they improve the immune system, inhibit inflammatory processes, give a healthy skin and coat, protect against renal diseases and ensure healthy joints. Specific CAD Active is also suitable for dogs with an increased need for energy and nutrients due to disease or surgery.


  • High energy & protein - A high energy and fat content combined with high digestibility allows a reduction in the daily amount of food, which is an advantage for dogs with an increased energy requirement. The balanced diet fulfils the needs of very active dogs, and the content of high quality protein supports maintenance and development of muscle mass
  • Joint, skin & coat support - EPA and DHA are both omega-3 fatty acids with a beneficial effect on the maintenance of healthy joint, skin and coat
  • Immune support - Contains ß-1,3/1,6-glucans from yeast which can bind to receptors of white blood cells, thereby alerting the immune system and supporting the immune response
  • Recovery - The high energy and balanced nutrient content combined with high digestibility promote weight regain during a period of convalescence

Feeding guidelines

The daily individual requirement may vary depending on factors such as breed, environment, season, activity etc. During races, sledge dogs may require up to three to four times as much energy compared to the energy requirement of the normal dog. It is therefore advisable to continue monitoring condition and body weight, adjusting the amount fed accordingly. Because of the high content of fat in CAD Active, it is recommended that the diet is changed from the dog’s usual diet to CAD Active during a period of 5-7 days.
