• We have fed our goldens (almost 11 and 2) Natural Balance. At our last visit we didn't see our regular vet but the vet we did see told me to switch the dog food to Pro Plan sensitive Stomach (older dog has food allergies). We have done that but I was just looking on the Pro Plan website and it says the sensitive stomach food is not made for older dogs, should I be concerned? The reason we were told to switch was because some recent studies showing Natural Balance caused thinning of the heart muscle in Goldens. Now I'm concerned the food is not appropriate for my older girl.

    Hi Suzanne,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local vet about this question. The food that will be best for your goldens will depend on a few different things. These include their age and breed as well as their age and overall health. Your vet knows your pets and will be able to give you the best advice in this.
