    Default When to switch over to adult food?

    So Stoagie is 4 months old and hes starting to grow a lot and I notice he's hungry a lot more and his food is disappearing that much quicker. I have him on Fromm puppy Gold and I was curious as to when I should switch him over to Fromm Beef Frittata. I don't think I should write now I just need to know when it is ok to so I can special order him some bags.
    TIA! <3

    Anytime is fine but I would stay on the Fromm puppy. I switched Pookie at 4 months and he got really lean. I switched him back about a month ago and he is now starting to get some mass. The benefit to the beef frittatas is less gas.

    How much are you currently feeding per day?

    I would keep him on the Fromm puppy until about 6 months. I switched Brutus to Fromm Beef Frittata at 7 months.

    How much are you currently feeding? Is he on 2x a day or still 3? Do you give any treats 9n between feedings?

    I feed him 3 times a day and give him 1 to 2 carrots a day. Sometimes green beans, no store bought treats. He's growing right now so it doesnt seem like hes gaining weight like he was before.@ChanelnBrutus @desertskybulldogs

    Tuni is 4 months as of yesterday and I'm planning on keeping her on Fromm Puppy until at least 6 months. She seems to really like it and I think she's gaining nicely. I have been warming her food up with a little water lately because of teething. Tuni gets between 2.5 - 3 cups per day (1 cup in AM and 1.5 in evening) She also gets Zukes treats

    Great post! I was just going to ask the same question. We just got our new puppy on Saturday and I wanted to get her on the Fromm as soon as possible. She just turned 3 months so I'll keep her on it for another 3-4 months . Just found a local Kennel that stocks Fromm and they have the puppy gold on the shelf. Running there tonite to get a bag.

    Does anybody on this thread buys Fromm online? I was just wondering which place would offer the best price.... I may switch Izzy from Holistic Select to Fromm hopefully it will help her with our current issues.

    She is 13 1/2 weeks old and she is currently 16 pounds.

    How much does Stoagie weights?

    @mizinha23 I go to a feed store and they order in whatever I need all I have to do is call and tell them I need it, maybe a store around you will do that?? It doesnt cost anything extra for that either.
