Kibble recommendation for Senior

I am getting really confused with the kibble recommendations with most people switching to PPP. I just lost my 3 golden to hemangio and fear the grain situationnof the sugars harmful to cancer. Pretty much decided to home cook, but would like to know a good back up kibble or can food. Plus supplements recommendations too.

If you're interested in a Purina Pro Plan product for a Senior, PPP has a Senior formula.

I really like the ingredients in the PPP except the rice scares me from the cancer issues. When you have 3 golden babies pass away from hemangio, it becomes a concern. It would be wonderful to find one with out grains, starches and legumes. I am at a loss.

Concerning the grains, you may want to read this thread-

https://www.goldenretrieverforum.com...m-goldens.html (Study on Low Taurine, Grain Free Foods and DCM in Goldens)

If you do a search, several others threads will come up about this too.

Thank you. I am familiar with this article. It is the legumes that blocks the taurine in those food and cannot be absorbed into the dog’s system. The taurine is typically inexpensive and you can work with your vet by adding this supplement. I have studied and read about this issue for four days. It also said home cooked meals but didn’t provide what those meals contained. If someone can explain why the rice, oats and corn meal is important for taurine that would be super for me to understand. And it also stated that all dogs should be tested first which is my intention.
