Default Feeding a puppy TOTW?

I just got a GSD puppy and I'd like to put her on the same food my other dog eats (TOTW high prairie formula) but many people said there's too much calcium in it for a growing puppy and it can cause bone problems. The vet said it's fine since it's a food for all life stages... so now I'm confused. Thoughts? Has anyone fed their large breed pup TOTW?

TOTW puppy salmon stream is ok--not too much calcium. My boy is seven months old and has been on it since being weaned.

This is what I fed Varick as a puppy. He did develop Pano, though the Vet never mentioned that it was due to high calcium in his food. There could still be a connection.

Are you feeding the puppy formula or the adult formula? There is a HP adult and HP puppy. Adult has too much calcium, but not the puppy formula.
