Recommended Dog Food Brands
What do a toy Poodle, Rottweiler, Pomeranian, Cattle Dog and every other breed have in common? You guessed it, they all need food and water to thrive.
And the uncommon attribute contrary the answer to that question? All will not thrive on the same nutrition and diet.
To complicate this logic, a couch potato dog that spends its "dog days" lounging, expending no more energy required than to nibble at fleas, requires different nutrition than a dog that's just marginally active.
To further compound the equation, breed size, small, medium, large and giant, each have unique nutritional requirements to thrive and live healthfully life long. Thrive I say, not get by, there's a difference and a trip to the Vet's office with a sick dog more often than not, is with a dog that is not thriving.
Dog Breed Specific Needs
Each dog breed in general has specific nutritional needs that can often be categorized by size, with exception to certain breeds with sensitive digestive tracts like Bulldogs. To accommodate the best nutrition for every breed, our recommended dog food brands offer top picks of both dry dog food formulas and grain free kibble, all categorized by breed size.
Puppy, adult & senior, or less active.. Life stages of a dog can change nutritional requirements with calorie, carbohydrate & fat levels in dog food being the most common factor. This would hold true with adult dogs that have learned soaking up the sun on your sofa beats chasing a ball paws down!
Puppies come with an entirely different set of requirements and large breed puppies must be grown slowly by feeding dog food formulas appropriate for large breed puppies with balanced calcium and phosphorus levels. The quality recommended dog food brands provided below are ideal for the breed nuances and life stages we're talking about.
