    Default Puppy food/adult question

    Ok so sparkles will officially b 10 months in a few days and officially started her first heat a few days ago. I took her into vet yesterday and she is 42 pounds. My question is when did u stop feeding ur puppy "puppy" food and switch to "adult" food? I want her and spike to be on same food but don't know if she is still too young.... I didn't make the switch on spike until he was a year
    Old.... Thanks in advance for ur input.
    Attached is a
    Pic of both of them a few weeks ago

    We switch ours from puppy food to adult at around 6 months old, so I would switch her now. Beautiful looking bullies, love the pic. Just one problem..... need more pics.

    I switched Vegas at 6 months to adult food. Does she try to get the diapers off? I am surprised Spike is not trying to rip them off her!

    Yea she manages to take them
    Off. They stay separated unless we r there. Spike surprisingly is not acting crazy as he did when she had her silent heat at 6 months.

    I don't have any experience with switching over to adult food as i'm using an all stages food. I just wanted to chime in and say "we missed you and your bullies"!
    thanks for the pics!

    Chunk's little buddy Oliver was just switched from puppy to adult food because and he is 7 months. I believe the reasoning was that the puppy food had become too many calories for his growth. I'd say you are probably fine to switch!
