You should be aware every time you give them food because in just one wrong food they will get sick or worse. You wouldn’t want it to happen. So make sure that you feed them right and on time.
However, how can you balance their feeding time if you don’t know how too? Well, we will help you in finding a solution to that.
A golden retriever’s food needs to be measured and balanced on its right amount like.
If your puppies are new for just 2 or 3 months old, make sure that you give them to 3 meals a day to make their bones stronger and their body fat moist.
Also, the only food that you can feed to golden retrievers is soft rice, well-grind lamb and chicken (without bones), and oats that are rich in vitamins, Amino acids, minerals, glucosamine and chondroitin for their joints.
Don’t let them eat foods that are high in fatty acids because it is not suitable for their blood circulation.
You must feed them breakfast at 6 or 7 in the morning with oats. Then at 11 or 12 noon, it’s lamb, and give them an early dinner around 5 or six pm with your choice of meal.
However, if you want fast food training at night, avoid giving him food after 6 pm gives and don’t give him water at 7:30 pm.
Also, when it is 10 in the evening, give him a piece of ice cube to chew, or you and he can go for a walk so that he can see in the night and make his senses work easier.
However, it is just for 10 to 15 minutes of the walk because he is still a pup, and he needs enough sleep for another day to face.
So when he is about 5 to 8 months, change his food with canned of solid puppy food with the right ingredient.
You also need to give him unlimited water because it that kind of age he doesn’t need to be dehydrated.
When the pup has reached a year and four months, check its growth if the puppy is ready to switch dog food.
Golden Retriever can be large, and that is why you need to make sure that all of the food that he ate if healthy and you can also give him a dietary supplement that will help him not be slim and not fat but just the right amount of food.
Also, when he is at the age of 2 to 3 years, you can start feeding him with real Golden Retriever food at least 2 to 4 cups in the morning, and 2 cups the afternoon, and 4 cups at night in case if he gets hungry especially in the night. You can also give him a bone so that he can have something to lick on when he is hungry.
Just provide him with water in a way that he can still be full, don’t him starve because it’s terrible for your pet.
Don’t give him energy bars that are being sold in other stores because it wouldn’t be a help for him if it’s his dinner, and it is just better for morning snacks.
Also, feed him with dry foods to prevent plaque from happening and tartar build-ups to on his teeth.
It is essential because if he has terrible teeth in his adult life, there is a tendency that it will be permanently loose.
Moreover, please take note that feeds him with the oily substance at least two times in a week because the right way to feed a Golden retriever is to lessen its fatty acids.
