What is the best dog food for medium-sized dogs?
In other words, should you be feeding your medium-sized dog an all breeds dog food formula?
As a pet parent, you are probably aware that dogs have different metabolisms depending on their breed size. Medium-sized dogs have needs that differ from the ones of small and large breed dogs. If you live in a household with multiple dogs, it wouldn’t be appropriate to feed a small breed dog a large breed formula, just like a small breed formula wouldn’t satisfy the needs of a large breed dog. One of our all breeds formulas would be the appropriate choice in this case to ensure each dog’s nutritional requirements are met.
Knowing the needs of your dog is key. That’s why Vetdiet® all breeds dog food is designed to provide the right balance of nutrients, in the right amounts, for all breed sizes, and more specifically, for medium-sized dogs. You will find the calorie content on all our food packages, along with a guaranteed nutritional breakdown, to help you provide your pet with the right amount of food. By following our feeding recommendations, you can rest assured that your dog will get the calories and nutrients they need to stay happy and healthy.
Is an all breeds formula the best dog food for small or large breed dogs?
Depending on the formula, it might be. At Vetdiet®, our all breeds formulas are specially designed to cater to the needs of medium-sized dogs, but also take into account the specific nutrient needs of large and small breeds to avoid excess or deficiencies.

How do I know if my dog needs senior all breeds dog food?
On average, dogs are considered senior when they reach 8 years of age. To know if your dog should switch to a senior all breeds formula, you should talk to your veterinarian, since different breeds mature at different rates. However, a quick rule of thumb is that a dog can be considered senior when they reach the last 25% of their breed’s predicted lifespan.
