2-Phase Concept

The MERA 2-phase concept provides dogs with a very high protein content during the most important part of the growth phase with Junior 1, greatly assisting the development of organs, muscles, tendons and joints.

From the 6th month onward, MERA Junior 2 provides a reduced protein content for large breeds (final weight > 40 kg) since large breeds grow at a significantly slower rate from this age onward and, what is particularly important, they grow for longer.

For this reason, MERA has developed two different Junior products. Junior 1 for small and medium breeds up to the end of the growth phase and for large breeds until the end of the 5th month and Junior 2 for large breeds from the 6th month onward until the end of the growth period.

All about the MERA CareConcept

The scientifically solid, uniform nutritional system for the healthy and happy life of your dog. Tailored to the individual needs of your dog, this CareConcept creates 360 degrees of total satisfaction.

Cellular protection: Antioxidants (vitamin C, E, beta-carotene, and selenium) for optimal cellular protection

To support natural defenses: Natural beta-glucans to support the natural defenses

Skin and coat: Natural omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids (salmon oil, sunflower oil, linseed) and zinc chelate for skin and coat

Gut flora and safe digestion: Prebiotic inulin for stable gut flora and safe digestion

Constitution and metabolism: Adequate energy content, high-quality protein sources (poultry, egg) and New Zealand green-lipped mussels (nutrients for cartilage and joints) to support physical constitution and metabolism

When the dog is a small or large breed

From a nutritional point of view, a dog is a large breed if its anticipated final weight (i.e. its fully-grown weight) is more than 40 kg. In this case, feed your dog MERA Junior 1 during the first few months, and MERA Junior 2 from the 6th month onwards. All dogs whose anticipated fully-grown weight is less than 40 kg should be fed Junior 1 until the end of the growth phase.

When Junior 1 is fed – when Junior 2 is fed

Every puppy, regardless of whether it is large or small, requires a puppy food with a high protein content in the early months in order to ensure that the organs, muscles, tendons and joints develop properly. If the puppy is given insufficient energy and protein in the early months, serious deficiencies can occur. Your puppy will only have a good muscular structure if it also gets enough protein. If the puppy is not provided with food that is rich in energy and protein during the important early months, its muscles would receive a poor supply of nutrients and would therefore be underdeveloped, as would everything else. It would not move in the way that is appropriate for the species!

The protein content can only be reduced from the 6th month onwards with large breeds, because they grow more slowly than smaller breeds from this point onward. On the other hand, the total growth period is significantly longer with large breeds.

For this reason, MERA has developed two different Junior products.

MERA Junior 1 for small and medium breeds up to the end of the growth period (approx. 12-14 months) and for large breeds up to the end of the 5th month

MERA Junior 2 for large breeds from the 6th month to the end of the growth period (approx 6-24 months)

Caution with overfeeding and supplements

Dog owners often think that a dog cannot be overfed, and metabolises all of the energy that it takes in and uses it for growth. However, this is completely false: Overfeeding in particular leads to excessive energy intake and the development of fatty tissue and excess weight, even in puppies. As the fat builds up, the muscles break down, which affects the sensitive skeleton of the dog. Think about and calculate the additional energy you are providing, particularly in treats. If you like to reward your dog with lots of treats, reduce its daily food ration accordingly. You can reward your dog with our MERA PURE Goody Snacks without hesitation, since they are adapted to the energy-reduced recipes of our PURE products.

Caution when adding food supplements:

It is definitely not a case of the more, the merrier. On the contrary, the addition of food supplements such as minerals (calcium, phosphor and the like) can also cause damage. Today’s puppy food contains ideal proportions of all minerals and vitamins. Too much phosphor, for example, can prevent the absorption of calcium, and too much calcium can cause abnormal bone development. If you still wish to use supplements, we recommend that you consult your vet.

Regal Cat Health Tonic

I have 5 cats, one of them regularly get UTI's. So, a few months ago I decided to give the Cat Health tonic a try and mixed it with their drinking water. All 5 of my cats started to drink more water! Which is wonderfull especially for the one getting regular UTI's. I am so thankfull for this! I mix 7 scoops with a 5liter bottle of water, they love it! I couldnt believe my eyes! My Orange cat didnt had a UTI the past 3 months, and still going strong! It is as if they are all much calmer and relaxed. Stress is the last thing a cat with a UTI need anyway. This stuff really works, hope it remain on the market forever!
