Is the Wellness Healthy Weight formula ok for large breed dogs?


Question

I currently feed my Golden Retriever Wellness Large Breed formula.  He is getting a little overweight, I would like to try their Healthy Weight formula, will that be OK for a large breed dog

Answer

Hi Karen,

Wellness is a high quality and healthy food for dogs. They have specific lines for small breeds, large breeds and any size dogs. The Healthy Weight formula falls into the last category and can be used with dogs of varying size.  The kibble will be a bit smaller than the large breed you have been using. The fat level will be lower and the calories are only 325 /cup compared to the large breed formula at 336 /cup. The fiber content also jumps from 4.5% to 8% in the light which will help your dog feel full longer. The large breed formula is fish and chicken based while the healthy weight is chicken based. The other ingredients are similar, so transitioning should not be too difficult. The amount of glucosamine and chondroitin may be slightly less in the healthy weight (the large breed ranges from 250-750 mg), so you may want to add an additional supplement for joint support. If for some reason you have trouble transitioning, just remember we have a 1/2 bag, 45 days return policy and would be happy to take it back!
