Default Best dry food for Golden Retriever Adult

I just got a 2 year old male golden retriever that has no known health
issues except he's a bit underweight. He had been fed Beneful dry
food in the past, but I've heard that's not a very choice of a dog
food. I'd like to keep feeding him dry food with the occasional can
of dog food.

What are some good choices of dog food?

Try dogfoodanalysis.com. They have a fairly comprehensive list of feeds,
rated on a star system (1 to 6, I believe). I think you would find your
Beneful rates a 1, whereas Orijen, the brand I used to feed, rated a 6.
It's a good tool to help you decide on a feed. No matter you decide upon, I
would suggest you feed a grain-free feed, as dogs quite often are allergic
to cereals and grains, and they're not necessary for their health.

Good luck to you.

I highly recommend Merrick dry dog food. I feed the Cowboy Cookout to my two 3 and 4 year old Siberian Huskies and the Senior to my 13 year old Huskie. We moved them to Merrick off Canidae after they changed the formula.

I donít like orijen for my Golden's. Your right it is too high in protein and it does make a big difference with large breed dogs too. Your Golden is still growing and will be until she is 2 years old. She doesn't need it!

I feed Natures Variety Prarie Lamb & Rice for all my Golden's here. They look wonderful and their coats are just beautiful too. Nice firm stools and tons of energy!
If this is not avaible to you then look for a food with no higher protein levels than 26%.

Another excellent food is California Naturals too. Or Wellness! Not the Wellness Core, again to high in protein.
