Ok, after a quick glimpse at the ingredients, I'd say not to feed it. Within the top 3 ingredients there is Corn meal, which is not good, and By product, another no no. The other one has corn meal, but I stopped reading as soon as I saw it. If you go to the first page of that thread, at the bottom of the first post there is a list of foods with scores. I'd recommend Royal Canin, or Diamond Lamb and Rice. The Diamond is what we feed Haus. No corn, no by products.

I switched H & K to Authority Large Breed Puppy since the DVP Duck & Potato was hard to come by. They love it, and it's available at PetsMart. I think about $24 for a 40 pound bag.

snarky, if you've already opened the bags and can't return them, you could donate them to a shelter or rescue group. Easiest thing to do is probably just drop by Petsmart or Petco on a Saturday, and ask whichever group is there if they would like the food. People do that with us all the time.

Well one good thing is that you need to switch food slowly, so its good that you have some food left over. If you want to finish up that food before switching it is okay, it isn't going to harm them. then when you are getting low on food start mixing half and half and then slowly adding more of the good food.

It is not a NECESSITY to feed a puppy puppy food... some people even disagree with it saying that it makes their bones grow too fast cause bad structure. So don't worry about that.

I feed kate the boxer forumla... it is recommended for pit bulls and those 2 and the AB's have more of the like body structure then with the EB. Kate lovessss it!

I agree with what Kate's mom said. We fed Haus puppy food until he was about 7 months old(I think). Then we switched him to the Adult food. It's really just a personal preference. I think the Royal Canin Bulldog formula would be ok for Baylee.

Actually the Large Breed Puppy brands are specially formulated to slow their growth to protect them from joint problems, also usually adding glucosamine and chondroitin supplements for joint care. Now I am starting to wonder if I should STOP feeding them this because APBTs aren't really a "large" breed. It says for dogs who will be over 55 pounds at maturity. Koa is already that size and still growing, but Heaven is petite. I think I am gonna have to switch them to something else. I'd hate to give them adult formulas though, they are still growing puppies.

I'm feeding the munchkin adult food, and she has doubled her weight in a week and a half. I'm not so sure that adult formulas slow the growth. :shock: :wink: :D

High quality kibble such as DVP Natural Balance, Canidae, etc. are formulated to be suitable for all life stages. (You just have to feed puppies up to twice as much as adults of the same weight.) You could always supplement with Glucosamine. I'm thinking of switching Bella from the regular Missing Link to the Missing Link that has Glucosamine and Chondroitin in it. Bella has been on an adult formula food for about 4 months now and seems to be doing very well. From what I can tell, her growth has been steady.
