Originating from Europe, Poodles are a proud and noble dog breed. They’re known for their sparkling intelligence and unique aesthetic, both of which make them an incredibly popular show dog. Despite the fact that they are a long-lived breed, Poodles still suffer from their fair share of genetic health issues such as Addison’s Disease, Cushing’s Syndrome, allergies, cataracts, and retinal atrophy. 

As a pet parent, there are steps you can take to mitigate the chances of a serious health issue impacting your Poodle’s life – with the most important being a healthy, balanced diet. All Poodles, regardless of size or age, need to consume nutrients that balance proteins, fats, carbs, and vitamins. By choosing a dog food that contains these important nutrients and more, you help fuel their active lifestyle and fight off disease or other ailments that could have a negative impact on their life.

Key Nutritional Considerations
For Poodles

Allergies

Poodles will frequently react poorly to foods with artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. Such allergic reactions can be prevented by putting your dog on a high quality diet with Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, like our Salmon, Pumpkin and Quinoa Formulas for Life dog food. 

Digestion

While Poodles are known for having relatively strong stomachs, even the most robust Poodle will have trouble digesting foods that contain low quality ingredients or artificial ingredients. For healthy digestion and allergy prevention, vets now recommend a dog formula that focuses on gut health.

Skin Condition

Skin conditions in Poodles can arise from a poor quality diet. If your dog manifests rashes or dry and/or flaky skin, a diet switch will very likely help alleviate these uncomfortable reactions. Foods with high quality proteins and fats will help improve the skin and coat too. A great example is Lucy Pet’s Duck, Pumpkin and Quinoa Formulas for Life dog food.

Happy Poodles

 “After reading up on all the foods out there, and trying several, I finally discovered Lucy Pet. As a senior, Levi needs the very best nutrition to keep him healthy. This food turned him around in just one week. No more skin issues, no more itching, and no more upset tummy. So grateful to Lucy Pet.”

Levi, Toy Poodle

Sheldon has been eating Lucy Pet Duck, Pumpkin & Quinoa kibble for two years and absolutely loves it. As a senior, Sheldon’s energy increased and his skin and cost really came back to shine like he was in a show ring. We’re true believers in the science behind Lucy Pet’s gut health, because he was noticeably more healthy in just two weeks after switching. Even Sheldon’s groomer noticed Sheldon seemed healthier after he started eating Lucy Pet food.”
