When your dog becomes an adult – aka, such a BIG boy – he is at the top of his game. Mentally, physically and probably even, spiritually. To help keep him top dog, it’s important to maintain the right amounts of nutrients in his diet.
Of course, it’s a little more complicated than your average Novia Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.
The size of your dog will not only affect how well proteins, fats and carbs break down, but also whether additional goodies should be added to Rover’s diet. For example, a big St. Bernard will need more help for his joints than a yippy little Yorkie, so your best bet would be to find a dog food with all of the essentials plus with added vitamins and minerals.
Still a bit dog-in-the-headlights? No worries. We have the nutritional breakdown for every size of dog breed, here:
Long live small dogs – that’s right, those little breeds thrive longer than any other, and antioxidants can help keep them yipping for years to come. Small breeds also have higher metabolisms (yep, we’re jealous, too). So, even though they’re usually 60% smaller than large dog breeds, they can handle higher levels of protein and fat for their overall health. Yip, yip!
Even though medium-size dogs have the most fabulous personalities the universe has and will ever see, their growth curve is average, and energy needs, middle-of-the-road. But don’t worry, Black Hawk offers a blend of proteins, fats and carbohydrates that’s just right for your pooch’s not-too-big and not-too-small metabolism.
Great Scottish Deerhound! Large-breed dogs can weigh up to 80 kilos or more – often more than their owners themselves. But being bigger isn’t always better on their joints – in fact, all that heavy weight can put extra stress on them. So, if you’re thinking of a dog food with all the essential nutrients plus extra vitamins and minerals for your big Borzoi, you’re spot-on.
