A POWERHOUSE OF GOODNESS
CopRice Working Dog is made with 100%
Australian wholegrain rice. Brown rice is
gluten free and one of the best sources
of all of the cereal grains of digestible
carbohydrate, which provides the
sustainable energy vital for endurance
work. The nutritious outer layer of brown rice
called rice bran, contains protein, fatty acids, vitamins,
minerals and antioxidants, which boosts the food’s
nutritional value. Rice bran’s high oil content also
provides extra energy, which helps maintain stamina
and provides a healthy skin and coat.
