msvette2u Blue Buffalo, not the grain free, is what we used w/the last litter of puppies. It was regular puppy as they were small breed.
But they did fine on it

Julio We have two Shepherds now and are getting a puppy next week.We feed our dogs Taste of the Wild because one has EPI and the vet said to get no grain food so it would help him keep weight on and it works and they both love it.
I went to a pet food store for advice for the puppy and the girl thought TOTW was good but she recommended Orijen for all three dogs.So we will go back and talk some more and probably get that stuff.
Hope that might help a little.

GrammaD Wellness Core Puppy's calcium is just fine. If the product is working for your puppy I wouldn't switch. Let the little guy settle in

jmcolter Has anyone tried Taste of the wild for puppies? Or earthbound holistic?
12-11-2012 02:48 PM
jmcolter Not really any specific reason. I have heard mixed things concerning grains in dogfood. I am not really against it. Do you use the Wellness super 5 mix? The rice sounds like it would be good.

msvette2u I would not necessarily avoid grains, we actually chose Wellness puppy with grains as I liked the ingredients better.
Rice is considered a "safer" grain than wheat or corn, and brown rice would not be a bad choice, either.
Is there a specific reason you're avoiding all grains?

help choosing food for 9 week old puppy

I am having trouble deciding what to feed my puppy due to all of the mixed reviews I'm hearing. He is on wellness core puppy and has been doing very well. I am concerned about the calcium and phos levels. I would prefer to feed him a grain free food like origin LBP but it is more expensive. Has anyone else tried wellness core puppy? I have also been researching earthborn holistic and TOTW puppy. Are any of these safe? Just looks g for a good grain free food with safe cal/phos levels. Thanks
