Question Puppy or Adult Food?

I'm thinking of switching Reagan onto Innova Large Breed. He'll be 5 months old on September 1. Is it worth putting him on the puppy food or should I just go with adult? (I'm not looking to start another dog food debate on here...just looking for some advice) Thanks in advance.

Adult food should be fine. My dogs never get puppy food. Just good adult food.

I've fed innova adult since Lucy was 4 months old. No need for a puppy formula as long as there isn't too much calcium in the adult formula.

What are you currently feeding and why are you looking to switch?

I've never fed puppy food either. They eat Nature's Variety and they don't make a puppy formula.

Depends if your pup needs to add weight...puppy food is great for that!
