For example, Labrador Retrievers tend to inhale their food. A Labrador Retriever diet will slow down the dog’s eating, which lessens the chances of bloat among the health benefits. Also, the slower you eat, the more fill you feel. And since Labs tend to become overweight or obese, that’s an issue too.
Of course, Labs aren’t alone – if there’s a specific diet for your (dog or cat) breed, Cline says you may consider taking advantage of that.
