Which type of dog food is best for my Golden Retrievers.?
Question by cherrylipsx3: Which type of dog food is best for my Golden Retrievers.?
I have 2 beautiful Golden Retrievers, whom I love like my kids. However after reading quite a bit of info about fillers and bad dog foods, I’ve been reconsidering their diet.
I’ve been feeding them Beneful, and they love it. But I’ve been reading a lot of article talking about how these “top brand” dog foods are really no good.
I usually buy at least a 50 lb bag from the pet store, but I’m not looking to spend $ 100 to do so. Like I said…I have 2 golden retrievers….they eat a lot. (and yes they’re at healthy weights)
My coworker suggested Royal Canin Golden Retriever, but said it’s pretty pricey. What are some other good dog foods I can buy at a decent value? Where can I buy this dog food? How much is it on average?
I’m not looking to feed my dogs raw foods, so please don’t reccomend it. I feed them a scrambled egg once a week.
I also feed them baby carrots, zucchni, strawberries (in moderation), apples without seeds, and sometimes potatoes. I’ve spoken to my vet and he said these were all ok to feed them. What types of fruits and veggies do you feed your dogs?
Thanks for the imput 🙂 10 pts best answer 🙂
Diana, I appreciate your answer but that really has nothing to do with what I asked.
My dogs are at optimal health, all vaccinations, rabies, heartworm etc. They go for regular visits with the vet every 6 months for a check up. As well as whenever they need it.
By feeding dogs a high quality food, this improves their health leading to less trips to the vet, and more years on your loved one’s life! 🙂 That to me is more important to me than anything 🙂
But again, thanks for taking your time to answer

I feed my boys (Golden, Dachshund and Yorkie X) Innova, it is about $ 37 for the medium bag. Check out http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/ . It rates all the foods and will give you a good idea of what good foods to look for at the pet store. I have heard Blue Buffalo is available at most pet stores and is reasonably priced.
I feed my boys apple slices, green beans, carrots. They love the tops of strawberries. I leave a good bit of berry on there, they go nuts for those. And there is nothing to throw out. Dogs are so environmentally friendly… 🙂
