Youve seen the ads on TV - dog foods meant specifically for your dogs breed to provide the best nutritional advantage. But are these benefits for real? Can you really improve your dogs health by feeding her kibble marketed just for, say, poodles or Labrador retrievers, or German shepherds? Its a question worth answering, since breed-specific foods dont come cheap. A 17-pound bag of dry food for Labs that we found online costs $45.00.
