Dogs of larger breeds such as Golden Retrievers and Labradors need a different kind of diet compared to smaller dogs such as pugs and Chihuahuas. Because of their larger mass, bigger dogs need more protein to help build and maintain their muscles. They also need more carbohydrates to feel energized throughout the day.
However, if you're not careful, you might be feeding your bigger dogs extra calories which could lead to excess weight. You should strike a balance or else, you run the risk of exposing your dogs to obesity. To make sure that your dogs get the perfect balanced diet, it's best to feed them the Wellness Dog Large Breed Adult from Pet Store, which is a food product specially made for dogs of bigger breeds. It can satiate their big appetites without letting them consume extra calories.
This product is rich in protein to help dogs develop muscles. It also has a moderate amount of fat to give dogs more energy while preventing weight gain. Beware of other food products that claim to be for bigger breeds because many of them pile on the fat.
The Wellness Dog Large Breed Adult has chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine hydrochloride which are necessary to keep joints strong and healthy. Bigger dogs have a lot of weight to carry so it is crucial that their joints can carry the load.
