What to feed a Labrador Retriever

On my journey to learn all that I could about what was best for my dogs one web site stood out among the rest. William D. Cusick, The Animal Advocate has put together an awesome website that specifically addresses the nutritional needs of different breeds of dogs. With permission I am thrilled to share the following exerpt.

Each breed of dog has its own unique
set of nutritional requirements.


"The Labrador Retriever is also only one of the few breeds known to produce an oil through the pores of the skin. It will develop a very dry and brittle coat in a very short period of time when the entire Linoleic acid group is not present in its daily diet." William D. Cusick, The Animal Advocate
