Re: how big should my dog be
Hi, dont be too worried about his weight. My pup is 40 pounds at 6 months right now. All dogs grow differently, it may take him longer to reach his potential, slow growth can be a good thing. As long as he looks and is healthy I would not mind it too much.
As far as food I would definately switch to a better food. Iams is a bad food as far as ingredients go and Pedigee is having a recall right now. I currently feed my pup Innova large breed puppy food and he has been on Wellness large breed as well. I would feed Orijen but it is just too expensive for me right now, but it is definately a very good food.
Look in the ingredients on the dog food if you see things like chicken by-product, corn/wheat gluten, those are no good.
Some better brands are: Innova, Orijen, Wellness, Solid Gold.
