TO OUR VALUED PET OWNERS: We apologise for any difficulty you may have been experiencing getting your hands on your pet’s favourite foods in the past couple of weeks. Unfortunately, like many companies, we are experiencing significant delays due to global supply challenges, leading to temporary out of stocks. We are working as best we can to limit this impact on you, our valued consumers. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team of Vet Nurses for FREE advice on 0800 738 847 or AskPurina@nz.nestle.com who can help recommend some alternatives.

All You Need to Feed
TUX Energy provides 100% complete and balanced nutrition for maintenance of adult working dogs. There is no need to add vitamins, minerals or other supplements, unless specifically directed by a veterinarian.
Switching to TUX Energy
Please allow seven to ten days to ease the transition from your dog’s current food. Each day, simply feed a little less of the previous food and a little more of TUX Energy until you’re feeding TUX Energy exclusively. This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.
Fresh Water, Proper Diet & Veterinary Care
Be sure to provide fresh water in a clean container for your dog daily. Proper diet, exercise and veterinary care are the best ways to help keep your dog healthy.
Cereals and/or cereal by-products, meat and animal by-products and fats derived from beef and/or sheep and/or poultry and/or goat and/or venison, natural flavour and/or vegetable oil, salt, vitamins and minerals.
We recommend a higher protein and fat content and the right balance of carbohydrates if you have a working dog. Feeding only protein and fat as energy sources does not provide a balanced diet for a working dog. Carbohydrates provide glycogen to fuel speed work and fibre for good gut health. Without adequate carbohydrates, hard working dogs find it difficult to completely recover energy and stamina between work sessions.
