The FDA recently announced 16 brands that have been linked to canine heart disease. We are working to remove these from our review pages as quickly as possible.

Giant breeds like Great Danes, Saint Bernards, and Newfoundlands need a specially formulated balance of nutrition and calories in their diet due to how massive these dogs are when they become full-grown adults (i.e., well over 90 pounds). The right food should also have all the essential supplements your dog needs in order to avoid health issues related to joints, hips, and cartilage, which commonly plague these breeds as they get older. And you'll also want a brand that accommodates any allergens your giant dog may have. Just as important as good nutrition, though, is finding a food with an irresistible meaty taste — whether it's beef, chicken, or venison — that will have your big pal racing to the bowl at chow time.
