Ultimate Canine Nutrition was developed by working-dog trainer Nadine Snyman and specialist veterinarian Dr Rachel Shuttleworth from the Cape Animal Fertility Clinic (www.animalfertility.co.za) in Stellenbosch, South Africa, along with an animal nutritionist.
As part of her specialised work in dog fertility, Dr Shuttleworth identified the need for breeder-focused nutrition. This led to the development of Ultimate Canine Nutrition, initially with the requirements of high-activity and high-producing animals in mind. As the demand for the product grew, Ultimate Canine Nutrition was also introduced to the general market to offer the benefits of this premium, yet affordable, dog food to more dog owners.
“We know, love and understand dogs. Also important to us are people, and we value the bond between humans and their dogs. Our aim is to help keep dogs healthy and to minimize the need for medical treatment. The correct diet, exercise and general care makes this possible.“
