Blue buffalo ADULT kibble
My 5 month old Zeus was not doing well on blue buffalo large breed. Seemed to hsve no energy and could not control the diareah. I thought I read a couple posts here that adult formula still has all of the nutrients a pup needs, just be sure not to feed a puppy food unless it's specifically for large breed.

I switched to adult formula of blue buffalo and I'm not 100% certain because it's only been one day, but Zeus already seems moe energetic and his stools are not nearly as soft.

My biggest question, is the 24% protein enough for him? I think the recommended minimum is 28% but I'll take any advice I can get!

I used to feed Blue Buffalo years ago and I never had any issues.

However, Blue Buffalo has been having some issues lately so currently I would not recommend feeding it.

I have used blue all along and we've never had an issue -- I fed Large Breed Puppy ( blue) up until Roxy was like 10 months old or older) she is on Blue Fish and sweet potato

I used to feed BB also, for some time, but switched because of allergies and skin issues.. and to be honest, a picky eater :p

I'd say just watch the protein and calcium levels. If I recall we stayed between 1-1.5% calcium and I believe between 24-28% protein when I fed adult food to my mastiff puppy. DON'T quote me, though. Do some research, but I believe those were the numbers we figured out worked well.. it was some time ago.
