Yes, you can switch, but don't know about brand.

If you do a search on the forum you can probably get some feedback about Diamond foods. Sold at Tractor Supply?

I also didn't feed puppy food.

If you pick an appropriate adult food that has good calcium levels and such you will have to increase the amount for awhile but it is perfectly fine for a puppy.

Just curious. Is the idea behind adult food early to maintain an even/slow growth weight? While some puppy foods cause growing too rapidly in GSDs? Been thinking about it lately.

I wouldn't feed diamond if it were the last thing out there a better quality food is blue buffalo or Origen or better yet raw food

There is a good sticky note in the Feeding Our Puppies section that talks about calcium and protein in feeding a puppy.

With a treand towards hi protein adult dog foods it presents another perspective for feeding pups...most hipro foods have high calcium (not all higher quality meals have less calcium) but puppies are not as capable as adults as managing dietary imbalances.
