Hi Rajesh, it's not necessary that you have to keep your dog on commercial food. You have a 2 year old Labrador who can now be fed home-cooked food. You can feed chicken rice, yogurt, egg etc on daily basis which will keep him healthy and happy. I've personally experienced that home-cooked food tend to be a lot cheaper than commercial one. Brands like RC, Canobites, Science Plan will empty anyone's pocket like anything.
I've fed drools to my dog at times when I was not able to buy him Canobites. Feeding him onces or twice is ok but not daily basis. It gives dark and smelly stools which is an indication that it's made up of by-products.
Only 70% meat or chicken is fit for human consumption. Most slaughter-houses in India sell this 30% meat to dog food companies which then make dog food out of them.

Rajesh, try feeding chicken with rice two times. You don't necessarily have to buy chicken from a world class meat shop. Dogs have the ability to digest even a raw meat without any problems and their ability to fight bad bacteria is a lot better than us. What I mean is you can buy chicken from an average shop. For example, there are people selling chicken on cycle near my house. I buy 50 gm chicken for just 50 Rs from them for my 7.5 month old pup, and that too boneless with liver which is great for dogs. Mix it with rice ( not Basmati which is expensive ).
Even if you feed 75 gm chicken to your 2 month old dog, your total cost will be about rs 2,000 monthly. A 3 kg packet of RC costs about rs 1000 and you have buy it 3 or 4 times so the total cost can be 3 to 4 k easily.
Apart from the above dish, you can feed an egg in the morning. Give carrots which are good for digestion.

I am using drools for my black lab since he was about 12 weeks old. initially I tried popular dog food purchase from nearest grocery store, our lab developed dandruff. Our vet recommended drools for large breeds. Once we gave drools our buddy started liking it and he's coat become beautiful and shiny. Now He is a year old now and 35 kgs. He remains always full of energy and now become favorite of our locality . Most of my friend are using drools for their pets and are quite happy with results.

Drools is the only food which contains chicken, egg and higher level of vitamin E with organic minerals. Composition wise its quite similar to RC and Hills.
