    Default When do I switch from puppy to adult food?

    My bully is 10mo old. I'm just wondering at what point others have switched from puppy to adult food. He is 53lbs and still gaining weight. He has some fat, but I wouldn't call him overweight based on the feel of his rib cage.

    We switched when ours turned 18 months. There's a lot of people that switch when their bully turned 1 year old.

    I switched at 8 months.... if you are on an all stages food you can switch sooner than other foods.

    Hi, I switched my two guys to an adult dog food when they were 7 months. Some people switch at around 6 months of age, and others wait until their dog is a year old. You can switch him now or wait until he's a year old, but if he's already 53 lbs, and a little chunky, you may want to switch him now since puppy food has extra calories, vitamins and minerals to support the rapid growth of a puppy. At 10 months old, Fezziks growth will be slowing down a little and he won't need those extra calories. Which brand of puppy food are you currently feeding him?

    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    Whoops. He is 9 months old (big boy). He is hopefully slowing down since he only grew a 1lb last month. He gets Blue Buffalo Freedom Puppy with chicken. I am looking to switch proteins though because he has been having ear irritation and was wondering if I should go to the adult formula. I think I'll look for an all stages food.

    Is there a preferred kibble size with bulldogs? We are still feeding Charlie the small kibble Acana Pork and Butternut squash.
