Pemmikan Energy Bar
Kronch Pemmikan is a very powerful, high energy feed block that has been specially formulated for working dogs such as gundog, agility dogs, flyballers, racing sled dogs, search & rescue dogs – as well as those in training or stressed show dogs. The energy dense bar contains approx. 6000 Kcal/Kg (or 2400 Kcal.per bar) so makes it possible to give your working dog a needed energy boost just before a demanding task without overfilling the dog’s stomach. By keeping your dog full of energy, it ‘shields’ out the adverse effects of the cold or heat which helps keep its performance constant throughout the day. Pemmikan has been shown to help reduce the stress dogs encounter in dog shows and other similar situations, such as long waiting periods. Kronch Pemmikan consists of as much as 58.5% fat, salmon, fishmeal, barley, corn, brewers yeast and numerous vitamins and minerals. Feeding Guide: The 400g Pemmikan bar is divided into eight x 50g squares (just like a bar of chocolate!) so it is easy to feed when out competing. The maximum daily ration needed is generally 100 grams (2 pieces) although dogs competing at a very high level of activity may need a maximum of 200g (4 pieces) eg racing sled dogs. In fact this bar is used as an energy source for dogs on arctic expeditions as it provides such a high source of energy, can be kept for a very long time and is easy to pack and store. The effect of Pemmikan sets in after approximately 30 minutes and it reaches its full effect after approx. one hour. Therefore it may be advantageous to split the daily ration into several small portions to keep a constant performance. For agility or flyball dogs - we would recommend the handler breaks one chunk into 4 little pieces which are fed one every 20 minutes up to 20 minutes before the competition starts. Pemmikan is also an excellent product for building up underweight dogs without over-filling the stomach.
