Best Large Breed Puppy Food Review

Looking for the best large breed puppy food? With so many dog foods on the market today, it’s almost next to impossible to sort through them all to find the best puppy food. Besides that, most people don’t really know what to look for when deciding on a puppy food for their large breed dog.

There are several things you need to consider when choosing a food for your puppy. What are they? Well, here’s a list of a few things you need to make sure are in the food you feed your large breed puppy.

Most importantly, you need a high quality dog food. A good majority of the dog foods out there, especially in the super market, can tend to be a lower quality food. That’s why it’s so very important to read the ingredient list on the food before you buy it.

Make sure that the large breed food you decide on has at least 25% protein in it. Protein is the building block for growing puppies and when there is not enough of it, they could definitely have problems as they grow and mature. Protein helps bones to grow and vital organs to stay healthy.

You’ll also find that many of your lower quality dog foods have fillers and “by products” in them. “By products” could be anything and everything that was leftover after all the good stuff was added. Let’s just say, it wouldn’t be very healthy for your dog.

Also make sure the food you feed contains no wheat, corn, wheat gluten or soy. If you went to the store right now you would be amazed at how many dog foods have wheat and corn in them.

Those two culprits alone can cause allergies in puppies as they grow up. The best large breed puppy food should be free of these ingredients.

Large breed puppies require the same quality nutrition as small breeds with one exception. They need less calories early on. You don't want a large breed puppy to gain weight too fast.

The solution? Make sure they don’t consume too many calories, too fast, too early. And, that can be accomplished by feeding them a puppy food designed just for their needs.

Dr. Jane Bicks, product formulator for Life's Abundance puppy food , has stated that bone problems in large breed dogs comes from genetics and gaining weight too fast and playing Frisbee.

Our puppies depend on us to make sure they receive the proper nutrition so make sure you do your due diligence when searching for the best large breed puppy food. Your puppy will appreciate it!


Street Talk

I agree! I used to work at an animal shelter and every time we got a large breed pup in we were careful what we fed it, shelters don't exactly have the best food budget but with the big guys we didn't want to add to their problems if we could help it.
