    I have heard beef is not good for the Labrador Retriever...and was thinking I had heard that here on RTF. Hope people comment ~ because we're thinking about switching from Fromm's Adult Gold to Victor's Professional. Anybody using it?

    Thank you, Charles. We did know that they have products for dogs with beef, but we were wondering specifically about the Labrador Retrievers and how they do on a dog food with beef as the main ingredient. (beef meal actually - a more concentrated protein than regular beef)

    Thanks Jay, Which kind of Victor's dog food do you feed? They have a great rating. We're interested...we are pleased with Fromm's but Victor's price is better.

    bought my fist bag of victor yesterday. turquoise bag 30/20 (its for pups too) dog got his first meal tonight ate 2 cups in less than 5 mins. i switched from eukanuba which had gone up to 46 at TSC at my local feed store victor is 32 for 40lbs. they had other bags for 26. we will see tomorrow about how the stool is. he seemed to like it.

    only initial drawback is the kibble size. its tiny. bout a centimeter in width

    Serious question. Why would a specific breed of dog benefit from a certain type of protein? I think that work, activity level, and size would determine the best formula, but breed?

    I just changed over to Victor 6 weeks ago and the dogs are doing great.. My only complaint with all these foods is I wish the kibble was bigger size to require the dogs to chew versus inhale.
