What Should You Feed Your Golden Retriever?

If you have a golden retriever, or if you know one, you know how wonderful they are. The wide smile, the welcoming personality, the silliness, he desire to say hello to everyone, everywhere, always. I could go on and on, and I am sure you could as well.

Along with all these positive aspects, goldens are often the victim of many health problems. Is this just the way it is, or can we change it?

There are many things that affect health. Genes, overbreeding, overvaccination, chemicals and more… Some things we can change more than others. Diet is one thing we have full control over.

Just as with all dogs, each body is an individual body. Needs and preferences vary. Although many goldens will often eat anything in front of them, their actual needs can vary depending on age, health status, activity level, and specific situations.

For example, individual goldens will benefit from certain supportive foods and supplements in many situations:

  • Young goldens
  • Aging and elderly goldens
  • Goldens with specific health issues
  • And more

We have the power to tailor our dogs’ food to their specific situations, over time.

Nobody should live on the same food day in and day out, year after year, with no consideration of what is going on in their life at that time.

It can be a great comfort and reassurance that we can use food to help support and nurture our sweet goldens. So… what does YOUR golden need, right now? Let me help you figure that out!
