What to feed him?

Currently my 2month old is on purina puppy (which I've heard bad reviews on) and was considering a higher end brand. I've come across information about a raw diet which I'm seriously considering. Which should I go with?

Best 5-Star Dry Puppy Foods

everyone has different opinions on kibble. dog food advisor is a good place to start reading up on foods. YOu dont have to pick a 5 star food I linked, but you can read about them and find one you like or see what they have in common (meat >>>> corn/fillers)

There's a whole forum with info about raw too and lots of people here feed that

An easy way to try your hand at raw feeding, is to start with a "partial raw" diet. You can purchase The Honest Kitchen Dehydrated food called "Preference", add water to it (to allow it to RE-hydrate) and then mix in ground meat, such as turkey, chicken or beef!

Example: Daily for a 30 to 50 pound active puppy (this amount should be divided for a pup):
2/3 Cup Preference
1 Cup Water (I add a little more)
1 & 1/3 Cup Ground Meat
Mix Preference with water and let set for 10 minutes to allow it to RE-hydrate.
Mix in ground meat
Divide portion per your pups feeding schedule

A 7# box contains 33 cups (dry), will last approximately 50 days feeding this amount and cost $55.

Preference info: Preference - Grain Free, Homemade Dog Food Mix | The Honest Kitchen
Find a store near you with your zip code: Where to Buy Honest Kitchen - Honest Kitchen Stores | The Honest Kitchen

Good luck!
