Large breed dog food is made for dogs 60 pounds and larger. For large breeds, problems with joints are common. Finding food that has specific ingredients aimed at joint and cartilage health is important. Large breeds tend to be a bit less active than smaller dogs. With less exercise, large breed dogs may develop issues with obesity. An overweight large breed dog may see additional joint and skeletal problems. This means a large breed dog food must contain a formula that helps with weight maintenance. Large breed dog foods are available in both dry and canned formats. However, because large dogs eat a lot, using only canned food can become very expensive.
