    Smile Changing food

    Ok , so knuckles is going on 8 months no problems what so ever . He is growing , his weight is good, he eats like a small horse, so I was wondering if I should start to change his food over to adult or keep him on his puppy food for a while yet, did I mention he is as strong as an ox. Just need some advice
    thanks

    What puppy food are you usng currently? Rocco is on the cusp of turning 4 months old and I've had him off of puppy food almost a month. I'm feeding Fromm's Beef Frittata which is an all stage food. He was too sensitive to the chicken in the kibble. That being said, if you go to an all stage food I don't think there should be a problem. I am by no means an expert, just going by what I've seen and read.

    It's up to you. He can be on puppy food until 2 years old as he's still building bones until then (Bullys have extended growth period as opposed to, say, a doberman, who gets his bones all "grow'd" by 8 months). Or you can switch him to an all stage food now which also supports bone growth.

    6-8 months is a good time to switch to adult food...

    @Ednosekir I would go ahead and change him now. FROMM Pork and Peas is a good choice, that's what we use for our bullies and they are doing well on it.

    Yep you can switch anytime, but since you said he's doing good on it you can also wait too, it's really up to you

    If he is doing good I would just stick with it a while it is good for him to get those extra nutrients for a while
