The Labrador Diet: Are You Feeding Your Lab Retrievers The Right Food?
When it comes to dog food, picking the right kind for your pooch is imperative—especially when it comes down to its breed. Dog food is designed to meet the general dietary needs of dogs, however, each breed has its own specific needs and unique requirements. Labrador Retrievers are no less. From having enough protein to help build strong muscles to having the right fats to maintain a shiny coat, dog food that may otherwise be ideal for another breed will not always cut it for your Lab. Even home-cooked meals tend to fall short on the nutrition scale. Scraps from human food can also prove to be detrimental to your Lab’s health as human food contains a lot more fat content than it needs. Lethargy, obesity, weakness, etc., are all consequences of a Labrador diet that is lacking in nutrition.
