Wolfie has been eating Fromms Gold Adult at the breeder as well. We got him at 12 weeks, and he still eats the same food.

What is pano? I'm looking to get Remy off of her large breed puppy formula, is there a food you recommend?!

A few articles about Panosteitis (Pano):
Leerburg | Panosteitis or PANO
Panosteitis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Panosteitis in Young Dogs

Recommending foods is a loaded question ... everyone has their own opinions and favorite brands. In my opinion, until a GSD reaches around 18 months of age the main thing you need to look for is a food with relatively low calcium, and a close to 1:1 ratio of calciumhosphorus. Beyond that, a manufacturer you trust, a food that fits your budget and that your dog does well on and enjoys are the criteria for a good food.

^^^[Ken's advice]

Agree. I switched around 15 months just to "standardize" things a little and start rotating proteins but I think that is good advice.
