How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding With Dengie Alfa-A Lite

Alfa-A Lite can be fed as the sole energy source alongside a broad-spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement or balancer.

 

Respiratory Care

The alfalfa in Alfa-A Lite is dried at a very high temperature which helps to reduce mould. Efficient extraction processes ensure Alfa-A Lite has a low dust content making it ideal for promoting good respiratory health.
