Nutritional Supplements Information

At Rick’s Retrievers we have a well rounded nutritional program in place. We get a lot of folks asking us about what we feed our precious Chocolate Labrador retrievers, so here is what we feed and what supplements we use. We use Next Level Brand Dog food. The reason we use Next Level Brand food is it is Made in the USA in Texas by Antoine Albin and Scott Glover who previously had developed a very reputable brand of food and now with their expertise and science driven development and Nutritional Knowledge they have taken their products to the Next Level hence their brand name. It makes it pretty simple for us to use Next Level Brand for the Health of our precious Labrador’s. Our recommendation for feeding Next Level brand food is as follows, We start the puppies out on Next Level Brand Hi Pro Puppy Formula at 3 to 4 weeks old and continue this formula until they are 6 months old when we switch them over to the Next Level Brand Hi Pro Professional formula through their Adult years up until their Senior years. the Idea behind this approach is this. Puppies grow very quickly in the first six months and the Hi Pro Puppy formula has the right blend of nutrients, proteins, and fat as well as calcium for their growth. When the puppies get to six months old we switch them to the Next Level Brand Hi Pro Professional formula witch has a slightly lower calcium level. We do this to ensure we don’t have to rapid of growth in the puppies growing joints to avoid potential joint issues and Hip or Elbow Dysplasia. by feeding our puppies in this manner we have had a higher success rate in avoiding Hip and Elbow issues. We have also Partnered with NuVet Labs nutritional Supplements which we start our puppies on at weaning, and we also utilize the Nutritional products in pre-breeding through weaning with our dams to aid them in sustaining their health during this critical time. You can see details on NuVet Labs products in our Store. We hope this information is helpful.
