We switched her to Adult Fromm’s, which she seems to like. We are feeding her 3 cups a day divided into breakfast, lunch, dinner and of course her training treats throughout the day.
After reading the posts on the site seems others have had the same issue when feeding 3 cups and have increased to 4 cups spread over a day, not sure if it was puppy food or adult food.
Thing is, her stool is still loose and very soft. Not sure if we should wait it out or increase her food to 4 cups or try switching to another kind? If switching her food any suggestions on kind and if it should puppy or adult?
Thanks for everyone’s suggestions.
I would take at least 3 weeks during the transition. I would keep puppy on puppy food too or at least an all life stage formula.. I'm a freak when it comes to joint problem so I watch calcium level on the food I feed closely.
