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 Extra

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 Extra until you’re feeding TUX Energy Extra 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.


Chicken and beef products and fats (dehydrated chicken and beef protein, beef fat which may contain sheep, venison and goat); cereals and cereal products; natural flavour and vegetable oil; minerals; vitamins and/or amino acids.


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.


100% Complete and balanced nutrition, TUX Energy Extra is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) Dog Nutrient Profile for Adult Maintenance.

Crude Protein (Min) 25.0%
