As pet parents, we want to ensure that our furry friends are getting the best possible nutrition during their crucial growth period. This is especially important for large breed puppies, who have specific nutritional needs. In this comparison, we will be looking at two popular dog food options for large breeds: Fabled's Gentle Giants and Royal Canin Giant Breed.
Fabled's Gentle Giants is specially formulated for large breed puppies between 3-18 months, with a high meat and no grain recipe. The recipe includes freshly prepared chicken, turkey, and duck, providing a balance of protein to support muscle growth and development. Additionally, the inclusion of functional ingredients such as botanicals, herbs, glucosamine, and chondroitin, help promote healthy bones and joints. The ingredients list also includes other wholesome options such as sweet potato, beet pulp, lucerne, lentils, pea hull, carob, linseed, salmon oil, coconut oil, minerals, brewer’s yeasts, manno-oligosaccharides, chicory roots (a natural source of inulin and FOS), egg powder, turmeric, cranberries, blueberries, spinach, rosemary, peppermint, pumpkin, broccoli, ginger, apples, thyme, spirulina, carrots, and pomegranate, providing a balance of essential nutrients for optimal growth.
Royal Canin Giant Breed dog food is also specially formulated for large breed puppies, with a focus on supporting bone and joint health. The recipe includes chicken meal as the main ingredient, providing a high level of protein for muscle development. It also includes a blend of vitamins and minerals for optimal growth and development, along with a complex of antioxidants for a healthy immune system. However, it does include grains such as barley and rice in the ingredients list.
Both Fabled Gentle Giants and Royal Canin Giant Breed dog food provide a good balance of nutrients and protein to support the growth and development of large breed puppies. However, Fabled Gentle Giants is grain-free and includes a variety of functional ingredients, whereas Royal Canin Giant Breed includes grains and focuses more on bone and joint health. Ultimately, the best choice will depend on your pup's individual needs and preferences.
