What is the best puppy food and adult dog food for a giant dog breeds?

asked 2021-01-11 21:22:14 -0500

I have a St. Bernese puppy. He is a mix of St. Bernard and Bernese mountain dog. He is about 7.5 months now and weighs about 106 lbs. We have been him Iams Large Breed ProActive Health Smart Puppy Dog Food for the past six months. Our vet loves it. But, I was reading up on dog foods and I think there may be some better options for him. Does anyone have any suggestions for a dog food brand for his puppy stage and eventually his adult stage? Thank you!

I feed Tuco, my 21 month Amstaff a 50/50 blend of BULLY MAX/ Diamond PRO89 it's great for all canine breeds & ages! "Tuco" has sensitive skin and stomach and after 4 weeks Tuco's skin & coat is gorgeous, clear and shiny, and his muscle mass is amazing! He really loves it too 🤩

I have owned giant breeds for many many years. Giant breeds require specific protein and fat ratios. Ideally, try to find a food that has 20-22% protein and 10-12% fat. The best kibble I have found for this is the Go! Naturals Duck and Potato formula. However I have to say that I am a raw food proponent, so that would be my first choice!

Stay away from vet foods (Science Diet, Hills, etc.) as well as any brands of food that you can buy in a grocery store (Iams, Kibbles and Bits, Eukanuba, etc.). They are all full of grains and fillers that are void of any nutrition. Hope that helps!
