TOTW Puppy versus TOTW Adult

Picking up the new pup on Sat and he's been fed TOTW Pacific Stream Pup. I don't see much difference between the puppy formula and the Adult.

Me Either

When we switched to TOTW their was no puppy formula, so we fed the adult to our pup, but I am not sure of the difference. Our girls like all of the TOTW flavors except the pacific stream, but I don't know what that means. We do like TOTW, the different flavors keep the girls happy and we are very pleased with their coats and energy. Good Luck

I believe it has different calcium levels,I may be wrong, but some ingredients or nutrients are different. The adult didn't work for all pups,I had a pup that got sick from adult, did great on puppy formula. When he got older I put him back on adult. My buddy had the same issue and did the same.

The difference is mostly in the calcium and phosphorus levels. All of the Taste of the Wild adult formulas are higher than I would personally feed to a growing large breed puppy until somewhere around 12-18 months of age. Either of the puppy formulas of Taste of the Wild (the last I knew there were only 2 puppy formulas), in my opinion, have acceptable levels of Calcium/Phosphorus. The Pacific Stream puppy formula has the lowest levels of Ca/Ph of any of the formulas.
