    Default Need Help with Food Switch

    So I have Brutus who is 9 months old on Solid Gold Lamb & Rice Puppy Food! He has been on that since he came home (breeder used Diamond) slow switch at 12 weeks. The past 2 weeks I have been noticing he has been licking his paws and his eyes are red! I have been scared to take him off puppy food before 12 months but after getting a lot of advice from other members IM NOT SCARED ANYMORE So we have decided that we are going to try grain free to start! We have decided on the Fromm Beef Frittata all stages. If this doesnt stop him from licking his paws we are going to cut to the chase and perform allergy testing. He isnt chewing his paws but licks here and there after eating. With all stages about how many cups a day would I start with. Right now fat boy lol he is eating 4 cups a day of puppy food. Any advice would be helpful

    Thank you

    Hi, at nine weeks old, he can go with being fed twice a day, especially if he is on the heavy side. follow the guide line on the back of the bag for his weight. I think he's around 2-1/2 to 3 cups a day. using frozen veggies like green beans or carrots along with frozen blueberry's as a treat will help cut down on the fat.

    Oh yes I see I have a typo with 9 weeks, I meant to say months. Good luck, and keep me posted.

    not necessary to be frozen, that's just what i have from freezing my own. I also put a spoon of plain yogurt on top of dinner. they love it. and a cap full of mother apple cider vinegar to the water.
