2014 puppies, What is everyone going to feed them?
 
I notice that there are a lot of us getting puppies in 2014. I was just wondering what you are planning on feeding your new puppy?

My last GS puppy was fed Science Diet Large Breed Puppy but that was 13 years ago. I know there are much better foods around today. I do think I want a large breed puppy kibble just to make sure the amounts of calcium are not too high.

So what should I fed him?

Fromm large breed puppy is a very good and affordable kibble. Much better than science diet.

I've got my 2013 puppy on earthborn holistic meadow feast and he's been doing well on it. It's an adult formula, but the calcium is fine for a LBP.

I will be feeding Fromm again! I love it and the dogs do too!

We'll be rotating through the Acana Regionals formulas just like with our last puppy (now 5.5 years old). The new guy will get transitioned to their Ranchlands formula, since his breeder is weaning them in TOTW Bison & Venison.

It's a good kibble for an adult, but the calcium (2.3% is the minumum) is pretty high in that ranchlands formula. I'd be hesitant to feed that to a puppy.

Iams. It what I have always fed and never had any issue that have derived from food.

I fed Iams to my Siberian Huskies until it was sold to Proctor and Gamble. All 5 of my dogs fell apart with the changes they made to their ingredients. Not a food I can recommend.

When did they switch over?

IAMS hasn't been a good food since the 90s.

Doesn't Iams test on animals too?

Not a puppy but we've recently had to cut back a bit in spending on food(sick cat and a lot of vet bills) so we're switching to Nature's Logic, I was rotating them between Orijen and Acana before but 'hoping' to sometime late this year or next finally make the switch to raw.
