Should You Feed Your Dog a Diet Marketed Specifically for Her Breed?
Some companies market kibble intended for specific breeds. We look at how these brands differ from regular dog food and whether they offer a health advantage. The answer may surprise you.
Some websites have offered food recipes for dogs of different breeds, based on where the breed originated. For instance, since Yorkshire terriers started out in England, you might have found a breed-specific recipe for Yorkies that includes the beets and potatoes grown in northern climes. The thinking is that as the breed developed, it would have been fed the staple foods of the region in which it evolved and that those foods are now good for the dogs’ systems.
