This is definitely shedding season. If your dog is in the one to two year old range, or younger, it's possible for dogs to totally blow coat and look terrible while they start to build their adult coats. I've seen it happen on many occasions at my boarding/daycare kennel on several different breeds including labs. Once the coat grows back in in a few months, it will look awesome.

That being said, hard to know if your dog has some allergy to the new food. Or if something else medical is going on since I don't know your dog or it's vet history. So, if you suspect something besides a coat blow, take him or her to the vet.

As far as food, I have goldens who are prone to allergy, so i play it safe using only food and treats that are grain free and high quality.
