Yes. Acana Pacifica is an 'all life stages' food. I switched my pup onto it, from Orijen LB puppy and then Orijen 6 Fish, as both were too rch and gave her the runs. She's doing much better on the Acana. The main difference is there is less meat in Acana.

Right now we have our 3 month old on Merrick Classic Puppy Food.

Should I switch her to the Merrick Classic for LB adults? I'm reading a lot about how larger breeds shouldn't bother with puppy formulas.

I got lectures from both vets starting out "I went to vet school.. and you think that you know more than me about good dog nutrition?" I said "Yes. I can read, and I've read for hours and hours about dog foods, recalls, etc. and I picked a food that I'm comfortable with and is best for my dog". Maybe they don't have many people questioning them, which is sad. He's on the large breed puppy, and he absolutely loves it!
My Vet said the same thing to me... tried to get my GSD puppy on the LB Science Diet. I told them no that I didn't like the brand and the ingredients in it. Ive done my research and have decided its not something i want to feed my dog... but i totally understand why vets do it, because they generally only sell one or two brands Science Diet always being one of them! So they want to push it as much as possible..

What you Guys Think. Orijen or Instinct or Evo? my puppy is 9 weeks and right now he is on Eukanuba because he had diariah and the breeder recommend it so it helps with it and it actually worked but i want to switch him to high quality food.

I've just started my 11 month old on Nutro Natural Choice Lamb & Rice for large breed puppy. I mixed it with her old food to start the switch and have her now completely on Nutro. Her stools are still very soft (and smelly!) and I've also read some not so great reviews on this choice of food. For the price of it- I think I paid a little over $50 for a 30 lb bag- is this the best I could be buying for her?

My girl is still with the breeder, and doing really well on BB Wilderness Puppy... It has outstanding reviews, and it's grain free... so in essence I think she's eating far healthier than I do, haha.

Re: Most Highly Recommended Puppy Food(s)?

I have been doing a lot reading on dog food advisor to find the best brand in my price range. So far it looks like diamond naturals large breed puppy is the one. 4 out of 5 stars and is only 36 bucks for 40 lbs. Only diamond naturals received this rating not the regular diamond food. Its a start we'll see what he thinks about it.
