Different Dog Breeds, Different Nutrition

Labrador and Golden

The Golden Retriever and the Labrador Retriever may have part of their names in common, but they have more differences than you might think. That’s why their individual diets matter.

  • Both Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers have a scissor bite, but Labrador Retrievers tend to eat more quickly, so they benefit from a kibble that helps them to slow 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

BREED HEALTH NUTRITION® features high-quality protein sources, unique nutrients, and kibble designed with specific shape, size and texture for each dog’s facial and jaw structures and biting patterns.
