From my research (some of which HDM posted as well), the optimal dietary matrix for a giant breed is 26% protein, 14% fat, 0.8% Calcium, and 0.67% Phosphorus.
Thus far, the closest I’ve found to that is Nutrisource’s Large Breed Puppy Food:
As you can see, it has a dietary matrix of 26% protein, 14% fat, 0.1% Calcium, and 0.8% Phosphorus. DFA has it rated as a 4-star food as well. Lastly, it’s also pretty affordable, with the cheapest I’ve found at $39.99 for a 30 lb. bag (31.99 if you sign-up for auto-shipping).
That being said, I was wondering if anyone knew of any other foods that might give NutriSource a run for its money? I’ve seen HDM’s list (Nutrisource is on there, btw), for what it’s worth, but I’ve not seen a food that provides a better dietary matrix, no matter the price.
Perhaps I’ve missed one, though?
