Our 18 mth old English Lab is 95 lbs and we are looking for the best brand of dry Dog Food for him. He had always been on The tast of the Wild, but it has been recalled and we don't know what the best type of food for him would be. Since we have to change brands anyway.
Type of Animal: dog
Age: 18 mths
Name of Dog: Dunkin
Taste of the Wild but i need something that is low in calories but great nutrients for him without having to get special diet from vet.
Do you require anything special other than what has already been listed, or have you ruled out any foods already?
He has many been on taste of the wild but occassionally he has had beneful and natures valley. Since we have to switch his food we just wanted the healthiest dry food for him. The vet states she would like him to lose 5lbs but we are accomplishing that with less treats. She stated that he didn't need to be on special diet food now but we need to be aware of nutritional value. We have tried talking with different people at the pet store but I get conflicting instructions. There are so many brands out there.
Thank you. It is hard to narrow things down. Keep in mind that many of the claims that you will hear are marketing strategies and may not have any real benefits. In the end, what matters is how well the pet does when fed the food. My own pets eat Science Diet, and they do very well. I would also consider Royal Canin Labrador diet--I have been impressed with the amount of research that this company does in order to provide foods that are optimal for individual breeds. So here are the two that I would look at:http://products.royalcanin.us/products/dog-food/labrador-retriever-30.aspxOR(This is just one Science Diet formula you might consider)http://www.hillspet.com/products/sd-canine-adult-healthy-mobility-dry.htmlI hope this helps, please let me know if I can answer any other questions.
