Why do Dalmatians need a low purine diet?
Dalmatians need a low purine diet because they are at genetic risk of developing kidney/bladder stones along with other problems associated with a buildup of uric acid. Uric acid is produced when their bodies attempt to break down purine.
Which ingredients are high in purine?The most common place to find high purine ingredients in dog treats or food is in offal such as hearts, liver or kidneys.
It is also high in gamey-meats such as venison or duck, oily fish such as mackerel, some green vegetables like spinach or peas and legumes like lentils.
Treats for DalmatiansWe offer a couple of tasty single ingredient treats, which include no offal, that can safely be given alongside a low purine diet.
They are the Chicken Nibbles and Beef Nibbles, both of which have proved incredibly popular with dogs and their owners because of their simplicity and deliciousness making them perfect for training or treating.
