Hi! I saw discussion on another thread and did not want to confuse the issue so I thought I would start a new thread. I did A TON of research for weeks on dog food before I brought Bogey home because I wanted to start off on the right paw!
I settled on Fromm's Puppy Large Breed and here is why: Any dog who reaches over 50 lbs at adulthood is considered a large breed PUPPY. It actually says this on the Fromm's site when choosing which puppy food to get. My vet explained that Large breed puppy is the way to go because it has LESS protein, not more as someone posted. Large breed puppy foods help in slowing the growth of bones so they will not have as many problems in adulthood. The misconception is that large breed puppy has a lot of extra stuff in it because the puppies grow so fast- actually the opposite is true- it is formulated to keep the growth down! The manager of the pet store concurred with this theory. This will help them in later years.
He also recommended that I switch to All stage adult food at 6-7 months, which I will do.
Hope this helps someone out there! It sure is confusing with all the different types of food! This site's Dog food articles were a GREAT help.
