How to feed a labrador? Specialist Tips!
Feeding a Labrador is a crucial issue, the well-being of the dog depends on its decision.
An adult Labrador is recommended to be fed 2 times a day. Labrador feeding times are set by the owners depending on their daily routine.
Labrador feeding naturally
With natural Labrador feeding, the dog's diet should be 80% protein and 20% carbohydrate.
Labradors are given meat (including tendons, heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, stomach), fish (cod, catfish), vegetables (cabbage, pumpkin, carrots), fruits, cereals (rice, millet, oats, rye, buckwheat ) and milk formulas.
Determining how much food a pet needs daily is pretty simple. Watch the dog for 2 to 3 days. If a Labrador eats greedily and licks an empty bowl for a long time, then the food is not enough. If the belly swells during eating, your four-legged friend is clearly overeating.
The dog’s daily diet should be appropriate for the age and activity that it exhibits.
Dry Labrador Feeding
You can feed the Labrador with dry food. Ready-made feeds of good quality include a full range of essential trace elements, vitamins, proteins, fats and carbohydrates. It is worth focusing on premium and super-premium products.

If the dog is well-fed, vigorous, healthy, energetic and has a good appetite, we can assume that the diet for the Labrador is selected correctly.
No matter what you feed the Labrador, clean water should be available at all times.
