Adult Food

Archer is 8 months and a whopping 77.5 lbs. I am thinking it may be time to switch to adult food. Any suggestions?

What are you feeding now? If you are feeding a large breed puppy food, adult food is normally higher in calories, mineral, ash than a good large breed puppy food.

Looks like a decent food. If he is chubby I would cut the amount you feed. If he is just big there is nothing in that food that would make him grow too fast.

Yea he looks and does well on it. The vet said he is just a bit chunky. I am going to cut some out and switch to adult when he's 1 year. Thanks!
