    Default Getting a puppy in a weeks time

    Hi all!!

    I am getting my puppy in a weeks time and I cant wait , he is going to be 8 weeks old. I have a question about puppy food, I live in South Africa and we do not have a great variety of good quality dog food. But I can get Acana.

    Should I get him the PUPPY & JUNIOR FOR PUPPIES WEIGHING 9 TO 25 KGS AT MATURITY or the PUPPY LARGE BREED FOR PUPPIES WEIGHING OVER 25 KGS AT MATURITY?

    Thanks

    Dieter

    How much do the parents weigh? You can gauge off of their weight. I fed mine the regular size puppy food until I switched to an all stages food. He is currently hovering around 54lbs at almost 1yr.

    to EBN ..... the regular puppy blend is fine, Acana is a great food.

    No, the best I can get is Acana. And then the other stuff like Hills & Royal Canin. Leaving at 10am for a meet and greet with the puppies and the parents.

    Hi and Welcome Normally bulldogs should weigh a little less than 25 kg as adults... but I think it's common they weigh 25 kg and more Two of mine currently weigh 29 kg, they're both 6 years old. When they were younger they weighed less, about 24 - 25 kg so they should lose some weight Males usually weighs a little more than females... It's a close call since they're on the weight mark, the breeder can tell you what the parents weigh and you can go from there

    Congrats on your new pup. I feed Orijen which is Acana's sister. Theres nothing wrong with feeding the large breed version, I usually do this with my pups.
