My breeder suggested I use Retriever Mini Chunk Dog Food from Tractor Supply.

I was wondering if this is a good brand of dog food.

I'm trying to find out if it is healthy for my dog.

Anyone have experience with this dog food?

Thank you.

Not really. It's probably comparable to Walmart's Ol' Roy. :) Tractor Supply carries a lot of brands that would be better. What are you feeding now? How old is your dog?

Ingredients:
Ground yellow corn, meat and bone meal, soybean meal, wheat middlings, animal fat (preserved with BHA and citric acid), natural chicken flavor, poultry by-product meal, brewers rice, dried plain beet pulp, salt, choline chloride, zinc sulfate, vitamin E supplement, ferrous sulfate, zinc oxide, color added (red #40, yellow #5, blue #2), niacin, copper sulfate, vitamin A supplement, biotin, manganous oxide, calcium pantothenate, thiamine mononitrate (source of vitamin B1), vitamin B12 supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride (source of vitamin B6), menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of vitamin K activity), riboflavin supplement (source of vitamin B2), sodium selenite, calcium iodate, folic acid, vitamin D3 supplement, cobalt carbonate..
Guaranteed Analysis:
Crude Protein, (min.) 21.0%; Crude Fat, (min.) 10.0%; Crude Fiber, (max.) 4.0%; Moisture, (max.) 12.0%; Linoleic Acid, (min.) 1.50%; Calcium, (min.) 1.00%; Phosphorus, (min.) 0.80%; Zinc, (min.) 180 mg/kg; Selenium, (min.) 0.30 mg/kg; Vitamin A, (min.) 10000 IU/kg; Vitamin E, (min.) 70 IU/kg.

I personally would NOT feed this food. There basically is no real meat in this food. It is filled with fillers and IMO not enough protein and fat for a Labrador.
