The AvoDerm brand is founded on a simple dog health principle: The quality of the dog’s fur coat reflects the quality of its health. Many people nutritionists suggest, for example, that the human body’s Vitamin C content is a benchmark reflection of overall health. In the same manner, your dog’s coat may or may not reflect how ready your pup is to take on the world. AvoDerm Natyral Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Formula Adult Dry Dog Food is designed to provide your dog with optimal health through proteins and oils, as well as an avocado supplement that will, according to the company, have your dog’s coat shiny, luxurious and healthy.
