    Hello, I will be getting a golden puppy in the next few months and I am trying to prepare as best as I can. I’ve owned many dogs previously, from one small breed to many large breeds. With some being adopted at older age and some coming to me as puppies. This is my first golden and I’m very...
  2. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My male is just over 20 weeks old (so close to 5 months) he has been in good transition and is doing great the last few weeks with it. Currently transferring him from Purina puppy chow to Purina pro plan large breed puppy. 25% old food and 75% new food is where I am at! Anyways, in total he...

    My puppy is 15.5 weeks old! He has been on Purina puppy chow since that is what the breeder had him on to start. I am planning on doing a slow slow switch to a better food as I am getting close to finishing the 35LB puppy chow bag. I am curious if I should stick with Purina brand (Purina pro...

    Hi everyone! This community is awesome. So I get my puppy in about 5 days once he is 8 weeks old. The breeder has him on this Purina Puppy Chow which I understand isn’t the best puppy food based on my research. What are your thoughts on Purina Puppy Chow? I bought a bag of it as I want him to...

    Hello, I was using Orijen puppy Large kibble for my 4 months old golden retriever. However, she seems to have some itching and loose stool. Our vet suggested Brit Care; Lamb and Rice or Salmon and Potato food. I was wondering if anyone has tried this ? We do prefer grain free but lamb and rice...

    Open Farm seems to be the best healthy kibble option on the market. They're very transparent about their ingredients down to the exact bag and cook their kibble at 200 degrees F to retain nutrients. Does anyone have any first or second hand reviews of the brand before I give it a shot? Thanks in...

    We're bringing home our new pup in a few weeks and want to feed her as well as we can. Researching this topic has been more frustrating and confusing than I had expected, so I thought I'd ask for recommendations.

    Hi, So the food I would like to feed my golden only has a Large Breed Puppy Food in a grain-free option, which I do not want unless needed and recommended by my vet for health reasons. The food I am looking into does have a Large Breed All Stages food, however. Would I be better off feeding...

    Hi there, I have a 18 week old golden at home, an absolute joy. He came to us on Purina Pro Plan Lamb & Rice and breeder advised NOT to feed food with chicken if we ever switch brands, as many dogs (including goldens) have a sensitivity to it. When we went to the vet, the vet recommended we...

    My 10 week old Golden, Jax has been eating Nutrisource Large Breed Puppy. Now I'm seeing all the stuff about low taurine. The Nutrisource food definitely has a lot of legumes as the 2n and 3rd ingredients. He definitely needs a large breed formula because he's put on almost 4 lbs this week! I...

    Hi all, I'm a new first time golden owner, and have been trying to absorb as much info as possible from you all. I've been wondering lately if you believe kibble or canned food is the way to go? From observation alone it seems like a lot do go the kibble route, I'm wondering why specifically...

    Hi! Our 3 month old puppy has been on/off with diarrhea for ~2 weeks-- did all tests with vet (and emergency vet) and all negative. Did a course of Flagyl with I/D and as soon as it finished diarrhea came back. Transitioned to other prescription G/I diet and second round of flagyl with...

    Hi all, I'm new to the forums and this is my first post. We're preparing to welcome home a golden pup at the end of February and have been taking our time to do some solid research on products such as food. This was recommended to me by a friend and I was hoping you'd all be able to take a look...

  17. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I switched to Purina Pro Plan yesterday afternoon and am unaware of what food her previous owner had been giving her. I turned my head for a second and she left a huge amount of diarrhea on the carpet. I rushed her outside and she had the runs out there too. I haven't fed her dinner yet and have...
  18. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I am looking for suggestions on puppy food. Most of the threads about this are pretty old so I thought I would look for some current info. Our breeder is feeding Iams LBP but the ingredients seem pretty low quality with lots of fillers so I think I would like to switch after a few weeks. Any...
