    Question Fromm and Puppy food

    So we started Jupiter on Fromm's Heartland Gold Puppy 'Large Breed' but then I went on Pet Flow and inadvertently ordered the Heartland Gold Puppy 'standard'

    What I want to get you opinion(s) on: Should I be OK with feeding the standard Puppy food with maybe a small change to the amount of food?

    The ingredients are the same just mixed in different proportions with a slightly different balance of ingredients.


    Heartland Gold Puppy - standard

    Beef, Pork Meat Meal, Peas, Lentils, Chickpeas, Potatoes, Dried Whole Egg, Pork Fat, Salmon Oil, Pork Liver, Flaxseed, Pea Flour, Cheese, Lamb, Brewers Dried Yeast, Alfalfa Meal, Potassium Chloride, Carrots, Lettuce, Celery, Salt, DL-Methionine, L-Tryptophan, Taurine, Chicory Root Extract, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Sodium Selenite, Sorbic Acid (Preservative), Vitamins, Minerals, Probiotics.

    I think Lambeau came home at 10 weeks and was about that weight... I'll have to check his records when I get home tonight

    You can feed the standard and it's OK, in fact, I would stay with it. Feed the same amount. I believe in feeding pups plenty when they are growing. We feed ours that age three times a day. When they get around months old we go to twice a day. We feed our pups FROMM Puppy Gold in the pink bag. Next time I may try the Heartland standard.

    I agree with David, the ingredients are so very close there is no reason to waste good food.

    If you are not giving NuVet plus I would recommend adding that to their daily regimen too, I use it as treats.

    Many here feed Fromm grain free line as it works well and you can easily switch flavors without transition time

    Beef fritata is not for puppy, can I feed my puppy with that?
