Different Dog Breeds, Different Nutrition

Even though the Golden Retriever and Labrador Retriever have a lot in common, it’s what makes them different that matters when it comes to diet. They eat differently.

  • Both Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers have a scissor bite, but Labrador Retrievers have a tendency to eat more quickly, so they benefit from a kibble that slows them down and encourages them to chew.
  •  Labradors were bred to swim in the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean, so they have a huge appetite for calories; a carefully controlled diet can help them avoid becoming overweight.
  • Golden Retrievers are prone to cardiac sensitivity and can benefit from nutrition that supports healthy cardiac function. 
  • Despite their similarities, the Labrador Retriever and Golden Retriever can benefit from a diet of nutrients selected specifically for their breed

It takes in-depth analysis, research, and innovation to discover that even dogs of similar sizes and shapes may have different nutritional needs based on the genetic makeup of their specific breed.  

BREED HEALTH NUTRITION features high-quality protein sources, unique nutrients, and kibble designed with a shape, texture, and size to meet the breed’s unique facial and jaw structure, along with biting patterns.
