When selecting dog food for your English Cream Golden Retriever, look out for the following features:

· A good dog food will feature a couple of meat proteins as the first several ingredients.

· Ensure that the first ingredient is not grain or any other carbohydrate. · The dog food with meat “digests” or “by-products” are the less desirable ones.

· The premium quality dog food contains meat meals as one of the first ingredients.

· Ensure proper quality of fat, such as chicken fat. Most vitamins are also only fat-soluble. Hence it is all the more important to choose the right one.

· Fish oil in dog food is also provides with the required nutrients, and omega-3, helping to keep the skin and coat healthy.

· Avoid artificial preservatives such as BHA, BHT, and ethoxyquin. · Also avoid artificial flavours, sweeteners and colourings in the dog food.

· For picking a puppy food, look for the one which includes the compound DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid). It helps in *****ting the development of brain in puppies.

· Puppy foods must also have a proper ratio of calcium and phosphorus.

The ideal ratio is 1.2:1, i.e. 1.2 parts of calcium to 1 part of phosphorous. for more information, log on to www(dot)goldwynns(dot)com
