    Not sure either, I Fed Ellie the Regular Orijen Puppy, as that what was recommended by Orijen's Customer service, based on her breed.

    maybe contact them, and see what they advise.


    Thanks and much Love,

    You could probably switch to adult food now if you like. Start with 1 to 1-1/2 cups twice a day and see what he looks like in a couple of weeks.

    Puppy food is very high in protein and most Bulldogs do not require that much fuel.

    I switched Chunky to Adult food at 6 months and went back to feeding twice per day instead of 3 times. Looking at that chart I would feed my dog 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 cups twice per day if thats what you are going to feed dozer. I think the chart is messed up since it says to feed more at 44lbs than 66lbs. I fed chunky orijen yellow bag until he was 6 months and he never really had a solid stool. His stools improved once he went to adult food and was fed less

    oh well, i already had bought the puppy food. guess i'll just have dozer finish it off and switch him to adult when it's gone. is there much of a risk of tummy upset if you switch from the same brand of puppy to adult?

    just start introducing the adult food by mixing with the puppy food as the puppy food runs out...

    daily dose
    puppy-adult
    3-1
    3-1
    2-2
    2-2
    1-3
    1-3
    0-4

    there, all done in 1 week...no tummy upset
