Being a parent to a large-breed dog comes with some pretty big responsibilities, especially when it comes to their nutrition. While all dogs tend to share the same nutritional needs, factors including their size, life stage and any medical conditions can mean their diet needs a little extra tweaking to get it exactly right.
Large dogs like Labrador Retrievers, Mastiffs, German Shepherds and Great Danes are also at risk for several skeletal health diseases and weight issues, so choosing the right big dog food is crucial to their health.
So how do you pick the best food for your big fur baby? Here are a few helpful pointers to keep in mind when choosing which food is right for your larger-than-most doggo…
When looking for and purchasing food for your big dog, ensure that the formula:
Overnutrition is a key factor in large-breed puppies growing too quickly. Excessive, accelerated growth is actually not healthy for large breed puppies, as this has been linked to developmental orthopedic disease (DOD).
Feeding our fur babies a diet containing the right amount of calories for their size is critical to keep them happy and healthy by ensuring they receive all the essential nutrients they need to supply their energy needs—put simply, underfeeding won’t provide adequate nutrition, while overfeeding can quickly make your dog overweight or obese.
If you’re at all unsure if your gentle giant is getting all the nutrition they need, it is best to consult with your vet as they‘ll be able to provide the best advice about your dog’s individual condition and nutritional requirements.
At Petzyo, we’re all about smart, healthy feeding for our precious fur babies. That’s why we offer high-quality, high-protein kibble and raw dog food diets based on tailored serving guides which ensure your pooch will receive all the valuable nutrition they need, without any of the hassle.
